Worldcon 2017 Trip Day 4: Hamburg to the Ferry

No time to really write about it now, and I hope I'll be able to get the photos online tomorrow while the ferry is at sea, but we had a good time in Hamburg for our one day here. We did have a miserable train trip from Hamburg to Lubeck and a complete waste of a first-class fare for which I'm going to ask DB for a partial refund, but we made it. Indeed, we got here 4 hours early, which is a bit of a waste, but we had dinner in the ferry terminal cafeteria and were there which Chris Carson and his traveling companion joined us. Soon thereafter, we had a bit of a mini-pre-Worldcon party going on with the people on their way to Worldcon, which continues as I type this in the lounge on board the Finnstar. (We have to wait for the cabins to be cleaned and prepared for us before we can go to them.)

I have wi-fi on the lounge deck of the ship, but probably not in our cabin. Don't know how much I'll be online during the trip yet. Tomorrow looks like a good day to rest. The ship's meal schedule is very civilized. Due the 0400 sailing, breakfast doesn't even start until 0930.
