Emerald Star Cruise Photos
Day 2: Bamberg (3)
At 12:45 p.m., the crew of MS Bellejour untied their ship from Emerald Star and made room for us to depart for Würzburg.
In honor of the city we'd just visited, the staff of the Horizons Restaurant had spelled out "BAMBERG" in colored pasta.
We left the Main-Danube Canal behind us. From now until the early hours of Saturday morning, we'd be cruising on the , traversing 34 locks before reaching the Rhine.
We spent the afternoon in our cabin, watching the ship's progress on TV via the bowcam and a position monitor.
We opened the window of our glass-walled cabin and enjoyed a close-up view of locks and other scenery.
At 6:30 p.m., we went to the Horizon Lounge for a Captain's Welcome Cocktail.
This was followed by the daily port talk by Emerald Star's cruise director, Balázs Varga.
During dinner, we enjoyed views of river scenes that ranged from vineyards to stately homes.
We wrapped up the second day of our crusie by sitting on The Terrace as Emerald Star passed through more locks (including , pictured above).
