Before this event I did bigger refit and correcting for my model. For example change windows and rebuild upper decks. Silja Europa isn't a ship with easy and simple design. Usual old ferries have boxed and easy design but the ship have lots of rounded details. Inside and out. Such ship designed by heart and with good visions. My model isn't 100% identical. Its about 80% near the original. Side windows are simplified and some tiny details are missed. I am proud of this result.
Silja Europa was in Australia from autumn of 2014 until begin of this year. I was almost lost the hope for bring my model near her or even, onboard at the period in far south. Little hope was alive inside me. The little hope was so strong that it could happen. In April of this year, I broght my little Silja Europa onboard the mother ship. It was beautiful and wery lovely time and stay in my heart as one special moments of my life.
No such cruises awayable from Tallinn side and the chance was fitable for me. A bit uncomfortable but interesting adventure still.
Onboard Superstar I had lunch and some peaceful moments. I sat in Dolcevita bar and watched the sea. Silja Europa sailed just ahead of us. She departed one hour before our ship and Superstar is so fast that can catch and pass the slower cruise ferry about in one hour. Superstar is shuttle and for fast crossing and Silja Europa is for cruising and enjoyment.
Finlandia was leaving while Silja Europa entered the port. The first one turned her bow toeard opened sea and the second one turned her stern inside after. The glorful cruise ferry turned around slowly and backed in place.
Finally I boarded and climb up on deck 10 where was located my comfortable B2 cabin, big bag in hands. I packed my things open and let the model free from package. Little details were in one small box for transporting and I fit these in place. The ship departed and I had some walking around onboard. The refit of Silja Europa is finished. Italian restaurant Tavolata is open and disco area is also in use. I watched every detail. General impression is good. I wery like colours and style onboard. For example blue and yellow in stern area and black and yellow carpets in ocean club. Atmosphere in the club was quite fascinating while fire display was in stage screens. Black carpet with yellow stripes gabe such warm fweling on background it. It fascinated me deep. Fast lane is not so stilysh as was the Foodmarket but food is delicious there. Good comfortable was eat and sit in front area and follow how the glorful amazing ship sail slowly through calm sea. I love watching sea. Its like therapy. After sea watching I feel myself more calm and pleasure. Life change beautiful and worries lose.
After enjoying entertainment the ship arrived in Tallinn. I moved in my cabin for making my model ready for bringing it out. For first I went in the ship info and show the model. The model like wery much to them. Sadly, technical crew hadn't time for looking my model.
I broght it in public spaces and took some foto session for stick the memories. I was pure happy at doing it. Some passengers speaced in pehind of scenes. One countrymate told "wow look, ship" it was funny to hear but less cam near.
In late evening I put the model in moonlight disco and the light play around. It was cute and beautiful experience.
Back to Tallinn in luxury
My cabin had big bed, big window, lots spaces and mini bar. I was wery happy at entering in the cabin. Before departure I had some private drinks. I followed the ship departure from the cabin. At sailing I enjoyed some entertainment, if can call it enjoyable. Some waltz music was performed in Ocean club at the evning. Ocean club was full of old generation passengers. I felt myself lost.
So I went back in my cabin and enjoy some prosecco and chozy view from window.
I had some fun dance in Moonlight disco in late evening. Its my world. young people danced and I try dance along them.
My morning began with a-la carte breakfast. Its included in cabin price. I had some frustation at leaving the ship and sad feeling inside because I know I don't get repeat this... Baltic Queen replace Silja Europa again and the last one go in Olympia terminal. No possible stay night onboard then and no possible have such evenings again. Baltic Queen is not so perfect for me. Generally I am happy I did the cruise with little model. Finally I can say that my model have been on its mother ship.
