August 8, 2019 – Scenic Cruising of Prince Christian Sound – Weather: 39°F/4°C, sky clear and sunny in am - partly cloudy in pm, wind 1 mph, humidity 84°
Prince Christian Sound wends its way through the islands at the southern tip of Greenland. After another night a fog we awoke to a beautifully clear sky and frosty temperatures.
We entered the sound at 7:00 am and exited it around 5:00 pm taking in the beautiful scenery, rugged mountains and glaciers coming down to the sea. Due to the twisting course of the sound the Captain kept the ship’s speed under 5 knots, with extended stops in front of several glaciers for photo opportunities and the fishing village of Aappilatioq (130 pop.) which is situated within the sound. Jessica, the EXC Travel Host provided a running commentary which was broadcast on the outside decks. Pea soup was served on deck at lunch for the stalwart outside viewers.
