  1. You can see what Celebrity have done in this excellent report on the evolving situation on board Millie - think it explains the protocols involved. Thanks to @colliercruiserfor posting. https://thepointsguy.com/news/celebrity-millennium-cruise-ship-covid/
  2. ....and we are hearing reports of two cases of Covid-19 onboard Millie. Not a good omen!! So much for rigorous testing protocols!
  3. Equinox seems to have crewed up as one of their dancers has posted on IG that she is on Day 6 of quarantine onboard. Apex is crewed up and is docked in Piraeus, Greece waiting to start cruising from there on 19 June.
  4. Does anyone have information on which of Celebrity's ships are fully crewed and ready to sail?

  7. Silhouette heading to Antigua to pick up crew who flew in from London. They were supposed to land on Barbados but were diverted due to volcanic ash clouds from the St Vincent eruption. This is according to Cruise Director Dan who is waiting on Antigua for his ship to arrive!.
  8. Here are the latest positions:- Apex – Bridgetown, Barbados [moored] Constellation – off Pireas, Greece [anchored] Eclipse – east of Singapore [anchored] Edge – off Barbados [underway] Equinox – CoCoCay [anchored] Infinity – off Pireas, Greece [anchored] Millenium – St Maarten [moored] Reflection - off St Vincent [underway] Silhouette - off St Lucia [underway] Solstice – east of Singapore [anchored] Summit - CoCoCay [underway]
  9. Celebrity Reflection and Serenade of the Seas are now positioned off Kingstown, St Vincent to assist in the evacuation of islanders caught up in the volcanic eruption on the island.
  10. Here are the latest positions:- Apex – heading for Barbados Constellation – off coast of Greece Eclipse – east of Singapore Edge – heading for Barbados Equinox – CoCoCay Infinity – off Sicily, Italy Millenium – off Panama City Reflection - Barbados Silhouette - Barbados Solstice – off Manila, Philippines Summit - CoCoCay Looks like Celebrity are getting ships that they might require for the non-US market out of CDC control. We know that Apex and Silhouette are bound for Europe once fully crewed and it looks like th
  11. Eh, correction! Silhouette will do six to eight day cruises out of Southampton with a fully vaccinated crew and all adult pax will require to be fully vaccinated and all under 18’s will require a negative PCR test within 72 hours of sailing,
  12. ....and here is what her sister looks like in her new livery.
  13. She’s back in her element with a brand new look!
  14. Here are some images courtesy of ‘admirald4nk’, ‘cruiseimage’ and ‘captainl3o’ from their Instagram accounts.
  15. Not long - Eclipse has been painted and she's back out of dry dock already!
  16. A rather forlorn looking Eclipse in Tuas dry dock, Singapore. She’s been sanded down and is ready for her new blue livery.
  17. Many thanks for the update. The situation going forward is beginning to look extremely confused. With the ban on all cruise ships docking in Canadian ports then Eclipse, Millenium and Solstice will have to be reassigned to new duties. Perhaps as Eclipse and Solstice are currently in or near Singapore they will be retained in South East Asia over the next six months so that they will be there to recommence cruising to New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific for the 2021-22 high season. Interesting that Reflection and Silhouette which are both stationed off the Bahamas are no
  18. Though we would do an update on where all our ladies are. Apex, Edge, Equinox, Reflection, Silhouette and Summit are all off the Bahamas; Constellation and Infinity are off Piraeus, Greece; Millenium is on her own off San Diego; Eclipse and Solstice are off Manilla, Philippines; and Flora and XPedition are still off the Galapagos. With the announcement of the cancellation of Edge and Constellation's European 2021 seasons we must wonder if this is the end for Connie - will she ever carry Celebrity guests again! ...and where will they deploy Edge
  19. Fantastic news for the future of cruising. The Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is to be rolled out starting this month. Priority will go to health care workers/NHS staff and care home residents; then over 80's; then over 65's - so we fall into the third tranche which should be available before Easter. Bring it on.
  20. Apex has crossed the Atlantic and has now joined Edge, Reflection, Summit and Equinox at anchor off CoCo Cay.
  21. Celebrity Apex has now moved from Southampton Cruise Terminal and is now anchored off Poole, Dorset. She is in good company as also anchored off the Dorset coast are Aurora, Jewel of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. We understand that she is provisioned and crewed and ready to sail trans-Atlantic to arrive in Miami in about two weeks time.
  22. Update on the new baby:- Apex has sailed from St Nazaire, France on sea trials with Captain Dimitris Kafetzis at the helm and she is currently docked at Southampton cruise terminal, England.
  23. Thought we'd update the positions of our ships. Very little movement. Just a temporary shift last month for our CoCo Five as they dodged the hurricanes but they are now back on their stations again. Apex has been conducting sea trials off St Nazaire and is now at anchor. Eclipse and Millenium still paired up off San Diego and Connie and Infinity still wandering slowly around the Aegean Sea off Greece. Flora and Xpedition remain off the Galapagos. We feel a bit sorry for the last X ship we were on - Solstice. She is a long way from her sisters and is just north east of Singapore!
  24. Ah! Our favourite ice-cream parlour - the Inversnecky on Beach Boulevard, Aberdeen, Scotland. Thank you for bringing back happy memories of long hot summers in the 1970's.
