I have been hoping to capture a happy ending for the Pacific Star's run of problems the last month or so. The storm & damage, the delays, weeks without a deckcam. Was waiting for the return to Brisbane cruise to leave a couple of days ago, then yesterday, then this morning.

Oh well, no happy ending yet, but the saga I have captured is on Youtube. Amazed at the number of clicks these get when they get linked from the Cruise Critic home page.

I've had this footage sitting on a tape in my video camera since May, finally got around to making it up and posting it. It's Pacific Star berthed at Portside Wharf on May 12th, taken from a boat on the river.

Guys i've added my video of the Star departing Portside on Saturday to youtube.

HERE'S a link I've pointed out Mac & Trudy (Mac37) in the video for the other CCers to 'meet' them

You can see a lot of damage to the hull on both sides - rather disappointing, but hey, at least she's sailing!

I've added a couple more videos to the wonderful world of YouTube

The first one is SouthAussie100's sailaway video. I've also added it to her "Last Post" thread.

The other one is a little timelapse video I had a bit of a play with last week when the Pacific Star was sailing back to Brisbane in bad weather.

Both vids are great. I think the URL's in your post got a bit mucked up when I tried to click on them. But I finally found them at:

By the way, the ship's whistle in the sailaway is fantastic.

I am not trying to be parochial, just want to highlight just how special Sydney Harbour is for a sailaway.
Yesterday, I noticed that Dawn Princess was departing San Francisco, so I figured it was an ideal time to capture the ship as it sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge.
I have seen & read so much of this from the other side of the Pacific, of how special this departure is. I am sure all departures are great, but compared to Sydney Harbour with the Coathanger, Opera House, Pinchgut etc - I just hope we appreciate that we have it as good as it can be. I will probably get the SF departure edited this week for comparison.

Looking forward to sailing out under the Harbour Bridge on Sun Princess, where there is only a 4 metre gap between the two.

Well said, Geoff!

I totally agree. Sydney is a spectacular harbour. I enjoy taking videos of it. We're lucky to have it.

I thought you might be interested in this video I did of Emerald Princess in Venice. I'm going to let the people on the Princess board know, but I thought I'd share it with everyone here too.

It's a bit longer than usual because she was in port for over 48 hours.

Hi Neil,

That's a great video. Venice looks like a beautiful city (at least viewed from the cruise cam!). What a terrific choice of music from one of the great tenors of the modern world. I love Pavarotti's Nessun Dorma.
