Monday, 3 June 2013 – Day 13

1231

Today we were sailing through the Kiel Canal, the world’s busiest artificial waterway – a very busy waterway. A lot of tankers and ships were seen as we sailed along. We passed through the Holtenau, Brunsbuttle Lock and Elbe.

Had breakfast and a wander around the ship watching the pretty countryside and activity on the canal. Passed by lots of pretty little villages on the edge of the canal.

After lunch went and had another quick game of bingo – the last one for the cruise – then went and did some packing.  After dinner, went into the Discovery Lounge and did my usual listening to the Excelsior Duo, chatted, cocktails and then it was a relatively early night to bed.
