Lynley Bilby is currently travelling from England to Norway on the Emerald Princess. She will be posting updates throughout the trip.

I'm all at sea. The North Sea to be precise. Here's the sight from my private balcony that greeted me at the start of the day.

It's pretty nippy this morning. Think Queenstown with snow on top of The Remarkables.
I've been on a behind-the-scenes look at ship operations.

Here's the ship's engine room.

I'd ask you to spare a thought for the poor person who has to wash 25,000 plates and cups every day.

This is a portion of the 95 tonnes of food they stocked up on before setting sail.

And here's a US$78k diamond ring I just happened to come across during the tour.
