The adventure started in Hamburg, where I spent 3 days upfront to get rid of my jetlag, after flying in from Shanghai to join this extraordinary cruise.
Day 1: Sea Day / North Sea
As our cruise starts with a sea day, we had enough time to explore the huge ship...
... and get familiar with its dimensions, the variety of restaurants, entertainment opportunities and great relaxing areas AIDAperla offers.
Also the small seaport Cowes on the northcoast of the Isle of Wight impressed with cute alleys, lovely #doortraits and picturesque facades.
Day 4: Zeebrügge / Belgium
The Belgian town Bruges appears even more charming on a rainy day, when most of the tourists prefer to stay inside and enjoy waffles & chocolate.
