    Warning..cruise thread

    Hi All
    Just thought I'd post this photothat Angela who is a friend took of RCI's Majesty of the Seas entering Portsmouth International Port this morning.
    Not sure why she's here unless it's just for supplies and fuel but she now has the honour of being the largest cruise ship to have visited us at 73000 tonnes.
    Maybe RCI have decided along with Hurtigruten that Portsmouth could be used for an embarkation port instead of Southampton.

    She leaves at 8.00pm tonight.

    Regards
    Garf

    I quite like myshiptracking you can see a 5 day track. and some of the AIS changes.

    QV was off bournmouth since the 16th July.

    Majesty of the seas due back into Portsmouth 2020-07-24 07:45 UTC

    A few ship in warm layup head out down the channel every now and then.


    If the FCO rules get relaxed so UK cruises can go ahead then getting a ship paying for itself or even costing less than sitting idle is a good start.

    Hi Wans
    Thanks for posting those.
    There's some strange behaviour going on with cruise ships.
    Majesty wasn't back in for victualling....I still wonder if RCI are looking at putting one of their smaller ships here in Portsmouth next season.
    Europe is liable to open up to cruises before America, China etc.

    Time will tell I suppose.

    We went for a walk on Sunday from Sandbanks to Old Harry Rocks and back, it was very strange to see the 3 ships (Aurora, Arcadia and Queen Victoria) anchored off the coast of Bournemouth. By rights, it's not somewhere they should be really.

    Just checked Marine traffic and all three have seemingly moved, QV is off the coast of Weymouth now, while Aurora is just off Dungeness. Arcadia is being classed as Vessel is Out-of-Range although one of here tenders is in the water at Bournemouth.

    Another cropped phone photo.

    Hi Jenkin/ LMM
    Any photo is a welcome bonus at the moment and as LMM says as it was taken using a phone then that's pretty good as they've not got the best zoom.

    Anybody who manages to squeeze a decent optical rather than digital zoom into a camera phone will br on a winner.

    Keep on taking and posting your photos.

    Garf.

    Got to say, no wonder the camera industry is in decline with images like that from a mobile 'phone.

    The advertising I see on TV for mobile 'phones feature it as a camera - no mention that they are 'phones or anything else.

    That was the first ship we sailed on in 1995 or '96 but from Miami. Thanks for showing it.

    She’s sailed from the Caribbean to repatriate British and European Royal and Celebrity crew, according to a post on Royal and Celebrity’s Instagram last month.

    As an update to the original post Majesty left at 8.00PM last night as per her schedule and is now circling one of the Marella ships that is moored in the Solent.

    A well tiimed picture taken by my friend Stefeni which shows the Spinnaker Tower as well.

    Must be more interesting for the bridge team to visit a new port instead of the “same old, same old” every 4 or 7 days.
