Sorry to hear Maasdam is having mechanical issues but you'll (hopefully) get to enjoy one of the best fireworks displays. I'm listening to the Pops Concert on the Esplanade and it's wonderful.

 

Hopefully you'll be underway after you see the fireworks.

It's a short ride to Bar Harbor. :)

Well we we're supposed to depart at 4 pm. No easy fix!

not good, but make the best of it and enjoy the fireworks.

 

toilets and engines are troubling though

 

I hope it all works out. If you can please let us know

 

I am crossing my fingers that everything works out and you have a great cruise

On the Maasdam on the Atlantic Adventurer in 2014, our engines stopped as we were approaching the Canaries. Everything became very quiet, until the Captain came on and said "It's alright, we're in deep water!" We didn't know whether to laugh or worry! Everything started up again about half an hour later.

Wow. I saw her anchored earlier and figured she was there for the fireworks, as other ships had done in the past. I hope you get moving soon. Please keep us posted.

I think they are very concerned. We are anchored in the port. Last communication was from the captain about 3 hours ago. 10 PM now. Gonna have hard time getting to Bar Harbour now. Lots of fireworks though. And no Code red. Just normal 48 hour hand you your food

Oh my goodness! We just left her this morning and everything was smooth! You are in good hands with the officers, staff, and crew. Best wishes and I hope all goes as well as our week.

The fireworks just started and they're beautiful. Great display.

Hope Maasdam is underway soon. I can't imagine Coast Guard is going to let them sit inn the harbor, not tied up, for too long.

We are anchored in a spot they gave us clearance for.

I see you have power. She looks so pretty all lit up in the Harbor. Keeping you all in my thoughts -- I hope you get good news soon.

I'm watching one of the live ship traffic channels -- one of the tugboats that escorted you out is now on its way back to you.

Yes tug boat justice just pulled along side. Think we're heading back to the dock probably

Yeah port radio says tug will escort you back.

 

Gotta feeling this will be a big problem.

I suspected Coast Guard would not let you stay anchored. So sorry Maasdam is having these difficulties.
