|The final afternoon tea was Swedish pancakes, dished up by the Purser|
(who is Swedish) and the head chef. We did enjoy this one!
Dinner was served quite formally. Here are photos of three dinner courses served on various nights:
|Duck patè with figs and balsamic glaze.|
|Roast beef, asparagus in prosciutto, and mashed potatoes.|
|A typical dessert. I often opted for ice cream instead!|
|The chart room is usually a quiet place with maps of where we had been. One night, however, as shown: we|
attended a cocktail party here. From the chart room you can exit onto the bow for dramatic views of sea and shore.
|The bridge of the Explorer is generally open to passengers except in very tricky navigation situations.|
At the helm in this photo is Oliver Kruse, the captain of the ship.
|Another area for quietly watching the scenery is the library, which offers many|
books about the areas where the Explorer goes. Outside the window is
Cape Horn. Owner of leg pointing to Cape Horn: unidentified.
