Hi Puddles

These Carnival ships have been around here (Southampton) for the last couple of weeks. Dock company site shows they will be returning here. Opinion here is it's at least 30 years since any Carnival ships called here.

Try searching for Southampton VTS/Cruise Programme - you've the complete cruise ship programme for the rest of the year, for ships coming here.

Hope this helps

;)

Thanks to Covid I am missing the sea and ships.

Then on the 23rd Jan. 2021 whilst passing the Port of Tyne. P&O cruise ship Azura was there.

Bournemouth - I think - I saw a comment earlier. There are a number in Bournmeouth Bay. I watched QM2 leave on Sunday night with a live chat with the Captain. He said they had just come in for fuel and food and were heading back to Torbay - you can sometimes see it in the background of the Dawlish Sea Wall/railway line cam. It would appear it can cost upto £50K a day to park something this size in Southampton - so they don't stay long.

Anthem of the Seas is off the coast near Bournemouth. She has Jewel of the Seas for company.
QM2 and Ventura are off the coast near Teignmouth.
Marella Explorer, Zaandam, Volendam and Oosterdam are in Torbay.

Hi Glencairn

Just a line to let you know the new P+O ship (Iona) is due at Southampton 16/5 - 25/5. Not bad, she's only a year late!
