Sørlandet had landed

Moored at Donegall Quay on a sunny Tuesday lunchtime.  Unfortunately, whilst allegedly open to the public, deck tours were only available on the following Wednesday from 16:00.  Is it normal for the wheel operator to face aft?  Welcome aboard! Except if you happen to be working at 16:00 on a Wednesday, in that case just sod off.  Remarkably difficult to take a view from the bow without toppling into the dock.
