Staff member of ship agency Gára ehf., Sigvaldi Hrafn Jósafatsson, told ruv.is that the first thing that a ship does when it docks is to fill up on water. “And Icelandic water is now considered considerably better than water in many other places in the world. They buy water as often as they can. Several hundred tons.”
The Norwegian cruise ship Fram was the first ship to arrive in Reykjavík this year when it docked in Faxaflói Bay on Friday.
