Europa, Ocean Majesty & Costa Mediterranea

Today the rain returned to Bergen, so it was under grey skies that Europa, Ocean Majesty & Costa Mediterranea made their departures this afternoon.

COSTA MEDITERRANEA

Throughout this spring and summer Costa Mediterranea has been a regular visitor to Bergen. Today she docked at Bontelabo terminal. These photos were taken from the Nordnes peninsulsa in Bergen.

EUROPA

Hapag-Lloyd's MS Europa was built in Finland in 1999, and has been widely acknowledged as the most luxurious cruise ship in the world for over a decade (an accolade recently taken by her new fleetmate Europa 2).

As she made her departure her sleek white hull stood in sharp contrast to the dull Bergen skies.
