  1. Celebrity Apex has now moved from Southampton Cruise Terminal and is now anchored off Poole, Dorset. She is in good company as also anchored off the Dorset coast are Aurora, Jewel of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. We understand that she is provisioned and crewed and ready to sail trans-Atlantic to arrive in Miami in about two weeks time.
  2. Update on the new baby:- Apex has sailed from St Nazaire, France on sea trials with Captain Dimitris Kafetzis at the helm and she is currently docked at Southampton cruise terminal, England.
  3. Thought we'd update the positions of our ships. Very little movement. Just a temporary shift last month for our CoCo Five as they dodged the hurricanes but they are now back on their stations again. Apex has been conducting sea trials off St Nazaire and is now at anchor. Eclipse and Millenium still paired up off San Diego and Connie and Infinity still wandering slowly around the Aegean Sea off Greece. Flora and Xpedition remain off the Galapagos. We feel a bit sorry for the last X ship we were on - Solstice. She is a long way from her sisters and is just north east of Singapore!
  4. Ah! Our favourite ice-cream parlour - the Inversnecky on Beach Boulevard, Aberdeen, Scotland. Thank you for bringing back happy memories of long hot summers in the 1970's.
  5. Here is a link to a video from 2012 of a cruise ship arriving at the Aliaga breakers yard. A very sad sight indeed! Perhaps the coming months will see a flurry of such decommissionings. Click here to view
  6. This update might be of interest to some:- https://www.traveloffpath.com/celebrity-cruises-reopening-everything-you-need-to-know/?fbclid=IwAR1XLL5T0jdG8Z8dA2UAu-3lZd_BWcWFPH96p6zNl6-rd9BQ87IJTTScCH0
  7. Details would suggest that she is just going back out into the Aegean Sea to "park up" again - perhaps she was in for fuel and supplies. The journey details according to AIS Marine Traffic state Piraeus ATD 3 Jun 18:07 UTC+3 --- Piraeus ETA 15 Jun 15:00 UTC+3.

Solstice has been dropping off crew in Singapore and the Philippines and appears to be waiting off Manila for further orders. Infinity is heading across the Atlantic heading for Gibraltar.
  11. Thank you for the update. There was word of European RCCL crew members being taken home aboard an RCCL vessel. Looks like Infinity is the chosen one.
  12. Here's a shot taken by a crew member picked up from Instagram showing from port to starboard - Silhouette, Summit and Equinox at sunset off the Bahamas.
  13. I am not a mariner but my understanding is that the ship's bridge will still be fully manned and watchful of all that is going on around them. The only difference will be that they are not "underway" ie they are not wasting fuel by steaming all over the Agean Sea - their engine(s) will merely be ticking over. Perhaps a mariner out there could correct me if I am wrong.
  14. Drifting in my understanding means - at sea, not at anchor but not underway. Could Eclipse and Millenium be heading for the Panama Canal to eventually join up with the fleet at CoCo?
