I was told that she was due into port, so we went up Signal Hill to see if we could spot her out at sea.
|When a large ship is heading into port, the pilot boat goes out to meet her. All large seagoing ships must be guided into the harbour by the pilot.|
|The pilot has been taken on board and AIDAbella is heading towards The Narrows.|
|AIDAbella looks happy, doesn't she? I don't think I've ever seen a cruise ship with a happy smile before.|
|I spoke to some of the passengers when they were exploring the hilly streets of St Johns. They were mostly German speaking, and even though my German is very limited, they told me that they loved the ship and were having a great time.|
|AIDAbella was only in port for the day, and left around 6:00pm, next stop is Halifax, Nova Scotia.|
