Cruise ships in my hometown!

Recommended Posts

The Regent Sevens Seas Mariner is like 3 blocks from my home! The Oceania Regatta is in the Outer harbor, both waiting it out in Oakland until they know the Alaska season has been cancelled for their lines.

 

Life ain't all that bad if you can look out a window and see a cruise ship!

 

Happy Mother's Day, 

 

Paul

I'm thinking about contacting both Regent and Oceania and offering to be a volunteer guinea  pig for their first sailings.

I remember reading how one of the cruise ships (must have been a smaller one) went into a small town on Vancouver Island called Port Alberni.    I think it meant a lot to this town;   the mayor came out to greet them.   I'm not from there but not too far away.

 

I feel like some of the ports that turned their backs on cruise ships should maybe do without them for awhile.   Try some new ones.    Am I being too harsh?

Hey, wait a minute.  This thread has nothing to do with waiting for refunds or how the cruise lines are screwing over everyone.

😁

 

But thanks for the pictures anyhow!!😉

         I live in Cocoa Beach, ( next to Port Canaveral). Carnival,  RC, NCL and Disney are all parked here.  The other day, an Oceania ship was here. They go in and out of port  but mostly are just lined up across the bay.  The captains are probably wondering who that fool is that is waving all the time!

I was there on the Maasdam last summer! What a charming town; I had a nice excursion there. 
The people were lovely. I can't imagine a warmer reception. It would be nice to visit there again some day.

Thank you for sharing the pictures.

 

Where we live, we can't look our the window and see any ships or boats.

I understand a third ship (perhaps NCL) is also coming to Oakland. From last night's news.

I also was fortunate to visit port alberni and agree the reception was exceptional.  Lots of really nice people went out of their way to say welcome.

The Regal Princess is currently in the Princess Amaliahaven in Rotterdam after disembarkation of European crew of the Holland America Group last Thursday. Tonight the Sky Princess will also be in port, tomorrow we can expect the Nieuw Statendam and Thursday the Seaborne Ovation. The Zaandam was supposed to come to Rotterdam for lay up as well , but I saw that the destination was changed to IJmuiden. Hopefully just temporarily.  If we can’t can on them , it’s at least nice to look at em.

The World Dream from Genting has been in lay up in the Waalhaven in Rotterdam since the end of march after a drydock in Rotterdam.

Thank you   for the pictures.  I miss seeing cruise ships on line.  At this time we usually see ships in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.

San Diego has Celebrity Eclipse, Millenium and a Disney ship.   Two ships at Broadway Pier and the other off the coast a Coronado.   

if you can believe the newspapers, the Eclipse still has recovering passengers from South America onboard.
