Celebrity Cruises - where are our ships?

Recommended Posts

When Infinity was north of Somalia heading towards India, for a few days cruisemapper.com was showing the destination as "Armed Guards Onboard"

Great idea, I'm sure the Somalians use those apps!

Is that a good sign for those of us hoping to sail on Connie in 2021 from Tampa? Or just another stop on her " tour"?

They could be returning crew to their homes.

Connie is now showing destination Piraeus, due 30 June

I have been watching her and it appears she is cruising off the coast of Greece and coming into port to refuel and reprovision.

I live south of San Diego in Imperial Beach and have been watching the cruise ships wait at anchor till things get going again,   Here is a photo of the Eclipse at sunset a few days ago.   Can't wait for these ships to get started cruising again!

How about they tender us out there and let us use it as a hotel for a few nights! That will tide me over for a little bit 🙂

I'm afraid you'd have to stay for a couple weeks at a minimum.  You know... isolation and all.  I hope that would be ok 😉

Beautiful!

We never sailed on the Eclipse..hopefully someday if she comes to the east coast of U.S.

 

Anyone have updates on Connie location and plans?

Both Connie and Infinity are anchored off the Greek coast taking occasional runs in to Piraeus to resupply

When does Connie go for her re-fit?

Have you any idea please?

I don't think that even Celebrity has the answer at this point. All the refits are on hold for the time being.

Should one worry that while AIS shows Infinity heading to Mytilini (unusual destination), that's only 30 miles north of the Aliaga ship breaking yard?

prehaps they are dropping off crew or maybe even picking up new crew. Many of the crew do live on and around these Greek islands and the ships still need to turnover crew even with out passengers on board. Last week Edge recieved a number of new crew in Miame

That's a very out of a way place for a crew change - Piraeus would make much more sense.

You may have been sorta right - she seems to be meeting up with Pullmantur Monarch, before the latter is supposed to go to a ship graveyard.

There are several ships going to be in Aliaga, so expect the Infinity to be on and off in that area for awhile. The Infinity is likely the designated ship to pick up the remaining skeleton crew including the ship officers for the ships that will be broken up as a result of the pandemic.

Connie is on the way to an area off Aliaga to meet up with Sovereign,  I assume a repeat of the Monarch/Infinity rendezvous of last week. The highest tide in the area (the timing likely when Monarch and Sovereign will be driven onto the beach at Aliaga) is Wed.

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

There was a thread not that long ago with a sattelite images of these cruisers just being gathered in the middle of the ocean. I gues most of them are still in the ocean. I wonder how many of them have returned back to ports.. but I am sure that not many. Usually it takes awhile to book the place and bring the ship there

There are currently two Carnival ships crossing the atlantic with  Port of İzmir as thier destination, the Fantasy (1990) and the Inspiration (1996). I imagine they are both heading to Aliağa as well.

Looks like the Celebrity ships moored near the Bahamas are moving out of the way of tropical storm ISAIAS.
