Finncanopus is on its way from China to Finland. The early days of the delivery voyage coincided with Christmas Eve, which meant that the crew of Finncanopus celebrated Christmas at sea. In this blog post, we show a photo collage of how Christmas on the Yellow Sea went.
Departing from Yantai
In addition to the Christmas spirit, the ship is loaded with cargo and provisions. We were able to depart from Yantai in beautiful winter weather. The deck of Finncanopus was coated with snow. The snowy cars on the cargo decks gradually melted. The scent of gingerbread and Christmas casseroles filled the corridors.
Christmas Red on the Yellow Sea
What do Finnish seamen do when they are far from home and Christmas occurs during the delivery voyage of a new vessel? Of course, they celebrate a cozy, traditional Christmas at sea, complete with casserole dishes, Christmas pastries, ham, Finnish mustard, and Christmas saunas. Santa Claus even visited Finncanopus! Below is a photo collage capturing the Christmas atmosphere.
