The King of Scandinavia is going to be home for a vast majority of the summer so when I boarded for my first proper shift I took time to explore. It’s a great ship with an excellent viewing deck right over the bow. For those really chilly days there is even an inside observation lounge. I have to admit that having the luxury of watching for wildlife from inside does feel a bit like cheating so I have continued to don the layers and face the bracing wind outside every time.
What is really exciting about working onboard this ship is that DFDS Seaways have kindly given us our very own shop area. Now we don’t have that much merchandise to sell at the moment but we are putting together some informative displays to brighten up the place. We already have a great reference area so I guess we are much more than just a shop, we are the ‘ORCA Centre’ ready to cater to all your wildlife needs whilst out on the high seas.
