This one is fun watching the traffic and people at the ship yard.

Everything is so white and grey and sterile looking.  Designer must be color blind.  Poor staff will definitely have their hands full keeping it clean.

Thanks for starting this thread! Getting us excited for her post revolution maiden voyage March 25 from San Juan. 

Thinking about doing a mini "live from" with some updates and photos while on this cruise! Meanwhile keep the photos, videos and information coming! Your efforts are appreciated! 

Cheers!

Summit is dressed in blue.  Looks like the pergola on Ocean View Deck is going in.

With all those open slats, it’s more “pergaloid”!

 

Thanks for all of your wonderful photos and posts!

One thing I really hope they change on the Summit in the refit, but very much doubt they will, is getting rid of the fixed wooden window treatments they installed in the large round windows of the Tuscan Grille when they remodeled it last time.  Silliest thing I have ever seen....they completely blocked the view outside for the entire restaurant - in favour of only letting a crack of sunlight through the fixed slats.  Even the waiters in the restaurant thought it was stupid...especially since that is where they have the Captain's Club Elite Breakfast in the mornings.  I remember being docked in Bermuda at a window table and not being able to look outside to enjoy the view.  Strange.

Wish they would have kept it more shaded.

Whoa, whoa, whoa .... you're not trying to apply logic, are you?

I know this is dumb but how do they get such a huge ship into drydock? I'd be afraid to walk underneath it.:classic_tongue:

 

In the Bahamas it is like an elevator.    The dry dock drops down and the locks are opened.  The ship is then position on blocks and then it raises like an elevator out of water.   

 

In Singapore it was more like a regular lock and the water is just pumped out.

Thanks! I'd love to watch this. Still have to think twice before I'd walk underneath.

Duct tape, bubble wrap, 2 staple guns and REALLY strong wrapping tape......

 

It's really a SPECTACULAR operation whereas the ship is precisely guided into into it's 270 degree "berth" and the door is closed behind it and the water drained out. Think of it as a Panama Canal Transit where the water is drained out of the lock but there just happens to be a "roasting rack" that will hold the ship as it settles into place.

 

Instructions:

 

1) Take large ship and gently guide into current wetdock.  Make sure you remembered to place the pan beforehand in the dock.

2) Carefully close door behind you making sure it doesn't leak

3) Drain water leaving ship resting on rack

4) Refurbish until done or slightly firm

Great description.   

 

In Bahamas it is slightly different and they don't use locks.   The elevator lifts the complete ship out of the water.

A friend and I will be on Summit in two weeks, March 25 to 30. Hoping I will like the changes. Will also be on Silhouette January 31, 2020 for first cruise after revolution. Celebrity guinea pig.

I'll say!

 

We will be on Summit right after you. It's hard to tell due to the very, very few posts about Millenium what will be occuring post drydock in terms of ongoing updates, if any, and if they will seem obtrusive, but I guess that each of us will find out soon enough.

 

I'm looking forward to getting on board. :classic_smile:
