Increasing number of tourists in Iceland arrive on a ship or a cruise.  One of the largest ships sailing to Iceland is MSC Prezi¬osa.  The enormous ship has scheduled three tours to Iceland this summer, and it is hard to miss when in the harbor in the small city of Reykjavík.   Almost towering above all buildings in the city and bringing thousands of tourists for a few days stay in the city.  Sailing by the shore of Iceland is a fascinating way to visit and gives a rare view of the country from the Atlantic Ocean.

Cruising to Iceland

In 2008 Iceland experienced a disastrous financial crash. What had looked like an endless path to growth, reaching back to the year 2000, came to a standstill taking a whole nation to an edge of a financial cliff. Among the significant symbols of growth and prosperity was a new conference and concert hall by the harbor. A symbol of success and wealth. A project that had started but a building that had barely surfaced.
