Balmoral & Explorer
As I was flying to Amsterdam to join Celebrity Constellation, it was left to my dad to go and get some pictures of the Semester At Sea vessel, Explorer, during her arrival.  I don't know whether she had called in one of her previous guises or this was her debut.  I had last seen her in Bergen back in 2008 with her sister, the then Grand Voyager, now Costa Voyager.  Balmoral was also going to be in, arriving first while Explorer was in view before the Fred Olsen had docked.
Explorer would be staying alongside Mayflower Terminal until the 8th September, when she'd set off on her autumn term.  At the time of writing, she is was scheduled to make two more visits in 2013.  For photos of her with her sister in Bergen in 2008, click here.
