    Re: Cruise Ships of the World

    Anybody familiar with this Expedition Cruise ship??

    She is heading south off the Norwegian West Coast at the moment, bound for Hansverf.

    Former Russian Research Vessel, but now registered in Cyprus and operated by a Dutch company.

    I also found this picture of her in drydock:

    Don't know what an ice breaking ship is doing in PNG though??

            She is still going strong:




            For those who doesn't know, this is the Leisure World, ex Skyward. IMO No. 6921828. Built in Bremerhaven 1969. She was the start of Norwegian involvement in the Caribbean cruise business.

              Thanks for the views of one of my favorite ships. Glad to see she is still going strong.

                Because of its huge size to cruise ship "Celebrity Reflection» sailing backwards down the river Ems to get out of the yard and into the North Sea

                  P&O's Azura on the berth in Southampton today. Not the prettiest of them all, but some of her 'sisters' are even less, errr, appealing!


                  The first of these by the very appealing Mrs PoloUK:




                  Why do I look at this view and think 'Gribbit' (that's what British frogs say'):



                  Now where did I leave that petrochemical factory?



                  Mustn't be rude - she looked very clean and well kept, disappeared on time, and I'm sure that the folks on board will have a great time. Next stop Ponta Delgardo.
                  Cheers,

                  Mark.

                      Re: Cruise Ships of the World

                      Rush-hour today in Southampton - five ships in port! Here are three of them in a row - Aurora at the back, Balmoral in the middle and Celebrity Eclipse having a bit of a fill up. Arcadia and Celebrity Constellation were a bit further down.





                      Do you like the security approach of the construction guys who are using their crane (in the foreground) to make sure that no-one pinches their barge?

                        Re: Cruise Ships of the World

                        A few more from yesterday - taken from Red Falcon on the Southampton to Isle of Wight run.

                        Celebrity Eclipse - looking better at a distance than close up.





                        Fred Olsen's Balmoral.



                        And one of the two better looking P&Os: Aurora (we last saw her in the summer in Åndalsnes - a world away from Southampton docks!).



                        Arcadia (facing the wrong way - looked like she was in the 'naughty corner').



                        And Celebrity Constellation.

                            Another one of Eclipse - a three quarters Pakarang! Starts off OK, then goes off somewhat just about where Whitonia is parked!

                              Does anybody sail onboard a ship of Compagnie du Ponant ?
                              I am not a fan of cruises but I am tempted by one I guess original from Lisbonne to Reykjavik with calls in Glengarriff, Galway and Killibegs in Ireland, Thorshavn in my dear Feroes , Vestman islands in Iceland.
                              MS Soleal is the new ship of the company, not too big-120meters- not too crowded. No casino or heavy entertainment.
                              But what I know about comes from their catalogue or web site.
                              So if CVF members have knowledge or experience to share I would be grateful for it.

                                Sorry i have no specific knowlegde about the Ponant ships. I can't remember having seen any detailed description on this forum up to now.
                                But i remember some nice reports and a lot of interior pictures of the Seabourn ships. For me that was impressing, because it was giving me a feeling, how a smaller cruiser looks like (and how a modern - not oversized - Hurtigruten ship could be equipped). You can find this here:

                                http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...rn-Cruise-Line

                                Maybe that can be a teaser...

                                And here, maybe you don't have seen it yet, a report of Cruise Today about the sister ship, the Austral:
