Lahti, Savonlinna, Helsinki, JBS
After arriving in Stockholm (July 10), we bid a fond farewell to our bus driver, Bjorn, and most of our Swedish companions, and boarded the Silja-line ferry Symphony for Helsinki. The ship was more of a floating shopping mall than a cruise ship, but a good time was had by all as we spread ourselves from Commodore Class to Steerage. Some of us slept, some took in the Casino and bar, and Don thought that he had been able to gel a glimpse of Siaro. A peaceful night, the Baltic was very calm, and by daylight we were steaming amongst the islands of the Helsinki archipelago.
