Default Quest Refit

Have just received confirmation from rccl, in response to my email to them, that the refit for Quest has commenced.

HOORAY!!! Only just over 9 weeks to our sailing and counting.....

Default Quest Refit? any details?

Did RCCI give any indication where the work was being done. I checked out the web sites and schedules (as much as you can on the internet) for the big yards on the French coast, Germany and Finland and couldn't find her. With the declining $ (euro 1.406 today) did RCCI move her up on the big dock in Freeport for better contract pricing?

factor30,

Thanks for heads up on Quest refit.
it will be interesting to see if there are any
subtle differences between Quest and Journey.

Hi Everyone !

Unless plans have changed, Quest's drydock is taking place in Hamburg. I have not confirmed this, but CC Member Moeve had mentioned it in another Azamara thread. I hope this helps a bit !

Re: QUEST REFIT - It's like trying to get blood out of a stone sometimes with rccl as far as their UK office is concerned particularly when sending them emails. They're very economic with their information in my experience. If I can get any further info, fair means or foul, I will let you know. In the meantime, Andy might hear something more.

It looks like she is slated for Elbe Dock 17 in Hamburg as of the 24 September and due to leave again on the 9 October. Unfortunately the Blue moon is not big enough for the outside (the one across the harbour) Webcams to be able to "watch" her.

Where is your information located? I'm curious as, try as I may, I couldn't find any other info on the net. Obviously, I wasn't looking in the right place. Also, do you know the website for the shipyard webcam?
Thanks.

On the Pullmantur Cruises website, the Blue Moon (Quest) has a listing for a 9/16 special sailing. It seems likely that she is traveling for the last time this week under the Blue Moon name to end at the shipyard for the refit.

So, it appears that the ship may not quite be in dry dock yet.

Hi Chris

Thank you for the information. I'll be keeping an eye on the boards regarding Quest's progress and passing on anything I get wind of.

Unfortunately there is no better webcam of dock 17 at B&V than this one available, where you can see Azamara Quest´s aft on the left side.

BTW, Fred Olsen´s Black Prince is in Hamburg at B&V for repair as well.

Thanks, Peter. Wish it was a better view, but "we takes what we can gets". Thank you for putting this on the boards for us.

Great investigation Peter: 10 days up on the dock. A paint job, some below waterline mechanical work and a thorough inspection. Sounds like most of the interior work will be done westbound across the pond. Let us know what progress you see.

Pinot 10 days is quite alot of time for an interior refit. Remember many of the changes are soft goods that are all prepared in advance. Curtains, bedskirtings etc just need to hung up or attached. Changing carperts is actually a quick job anboard.... One will see a heck of a difference in 10 days.
