  1. Viking Sky had enough oil in tanks to satisfy regulation but due to the rolling at times the sensors were above the oil level as it moved in the tanks, I believe sensors have been placed lower in the tanks . Anyone remember a British Leyland car with a computer many years ago Allegro? when parked up or downhill or braking sharply the helpful voice said "low oil pressure"
  2. she was in Venice on 4th and Split on 5th left Split at 2009 UTC
  3. we did this in 2017, bus stopped at road for the cemetery and we walked about 30 minutes cemetery is on right, not far or expensive with a taxi I suspect
  4. Ok on QE for what we want emails, general internet in cabins , not been on QV since 2014 when we sometimes had to prop cabin door open but nit was ok in grand lobby and other open places
  5. we did the Curonian Spit excursion with Cunard very good
  6. true but they do not update correctly often 1-2 days behind actual position
  7. it is water displacement by large ships and pressure generated by it nothing to do with wash etc from small craft
  8. Cherbourg Coruna is 504nm bit shorter through Alderney Race current pn has 286 nm to go at 14 knots giving ETA at pilot station as 0400 UTC or 0600 local

  11. bus by dock fare was about 2 euros it was not a PO shuttle
  12. P & O recently launched a new website based on the HAL and Cunard site. If anything it was worse St Petersburg appeared in Norway, Western Europe and Med destinations which also included an Icelandic port. Possibly a cure for sea sickness as the maps for many cruises went completely overland. Today the old site, not perfect, but ok appears to be back including webcams. Any chance of Cunard following suit?
  13. unless things have changed since my sea going days the captain is responsible for the accuracy of the log ships today have a multitude of tech equipment that records data of all sorts and what about the pilot is his opinion being falsified?
  14. The sea description in the Beaufort Scale applies to open waters not confined areas such as the approach to St PP where strong tides, shallow water and wind gaps between areas of land such as bays, islands and headlands can and do differ from a forecast. The Dover Strait often has stronger winds through the wind gap between Dover and Cap Griz Nez than areas close by. Also in onshore winds especially those from high pressure are often stronger close to ashore than offshore in the same way offshore winds are lighter close to land than out a t sea. Today all seems to be well but Friday for Britannia seems to a possible problem.
  15. Outlook for the following 24 hours: WIND East 2 to 4, soon veering southeast, then backing east to northeast 3 to 5 by midnight. SEA STATE Slight, locally smooth, with a low swell. WEATHER Occasional haze, risk of mist near French coast around dawn risk of isolated thundery showers later. VISIBILITY Moderate to good, perhaps locally poor near French coast around dawn. Met Office Inshore Waters forecast outlook 4 Monday when Ventura will try again notice the suggested low swell the wind has been in an easterly point now for some days so that swell may be more significant
