Apparently they can’t find the keys.

Wouldn't it be easier, and more safe to do the transit in the daytime? Just a thought...

I think it's the timing to be at the Ems river delta at a certain tide level.

 

They rise the river's level from a lock at the delta/sea up to the yard to accommodate the draft of the ships that leave the yard.

Think of shutting down all the bridges over the Chattahoochee River around Atlanta for a day.

Do you think anyone would complain?:)

Thank you for the info on the tides / lock. Yes, I suppose that they've got it all figured out...

Did the live stream end?

 

 

It did, but maybe it comes back up at each location?

 

Translated...

 

The current schedule (short-term changes are possible).

 

Wednesday:

2:00am: Passing the Friesenbrücke in Weener

4:15am: Passing the Jann Berghaus Bridge in Leer

8:00am: arrival at the Ems barrier in Gandersum

10.15am clock: Passing the Emsperrwerk

11.45am: Turning the ship in Emden

 

(Subtract 5-hours for EST, but it was behind schedule early on)

Wow! These 3 photos, and the lighting in particular, are stunning!

 

Wish I was onboard right now. 79 more days!

I’m confused.

The ship has already passed that 436 bridge (Jann-Berghaus-Brücke). This was scheduled for 4:15am, so it wasn’t expected for another hour.

Appears the live stream was scheduled to return around 10am (5am EST)...

Looks to be tackling a bridge at the moment...

It is my understanding that the balcony on 18 for the DOS on the Escape is significantly smaller - so you are probably correct!!

 

 

 

We were in the deck 18 owner’s suite on the Escape and this deck looks pretty much identical (smaller than deck 17). Those numbers are definitely “off”.

 

We hardly used the front deck due to it being insanely windy the whole cruise...

Yes, she has to wait until she can pass the big lock at Gandersum (Emssperrwerk). She´s currently sitting at Leer close to the dam.
