We were up early once again for the day we’d disembark the ship. When we drew open the curtains on our stateroom the view that greeted us was that of a fuel tanker alongside Azamara Journey. The ship had already arrived in Copenhagen and obviously the ship was being refuelled for the next cruise that would depart in the afternoon. Our scheduled disembarkation time was 7:45am, so we got ready and packed up the reminder of our belongings before heading off one last time to Windows Café for breakfast. Something we had noticed on previous cruises and this one was no exception as we took breakfast - the mood in the restaurant was sombre on this final morning, not the normal hubbub of the start of a cruise day. It was, though, the start of a lovely day and we selected a spot outside in the Sunset Bar area at the back of the ship to enjoy our breakfast.
Following breakfast we took a walk around the open decks for a few last photos before leaving. All of the amenities on the ship were closed and the desks were still a bit wet from the early morning wash down. With that, it was a pit stop in our stateroom to collect our stuff and then disembark. Within mere moments we had left the ship, located and collected our bags - the process was very smooth and efficient. There were many waiting taxis outside the terminal, so there was no delay there either. 100DKK (Danish Kroner) later we were at 71 Nyhavn - our post-cruise hotel in Copenhagen. Total elapsed time from setting foot off the ship to the checking in at the hotel was under 20 minutes. At the check in we found out that our room was already available at this early hour, so we were feeling in luck.
