It is a dam ship Sail-Away Fiesta! December 19, 2015

Recommended Posts

Wish Prinsendam and Independence had switched places. It would be nice to see all three 'dam ships together!

I know someone who will be thrilled to see her favourite two ships in port tomorrow. I, on the other hand am happy to see one of my favourite ships and one that I will be cruising on in April!

 

LOL - whomever could you be referring to :p;)

 

Hopefully once you cruise in April, that other ship will become one of your favourites too :)

I missed sail away yesterday but will be here today. Looks like we have lots of talented song writers out there. This will be the last sail away for the Maasdam before she goes in for dry dock. We get on her the day after she is finished getting fixed up. Looking forward to getting on a nice clean fresh ship for our cruise.

Have a great cruise on board the Maasdam Allan :)

Provision Master and Controller; two of the busiest guys responsible for loading pallets today, especially for the two ships just returning to the States

Sounds like 250 passengers missing but it kept breaking up so I couldn't hear what he said about them.

 

They're still expected and captain requested the port agent to give him (captain) an update when he (port agent) knows more about a hard ETA

Someone is in line to check in but doesn't want to check in??? I wish that conversation had not broken up!

Wasn't a HAL ship!

How do they do muster now? I keep hearing about stages. Leaving on the Westy in March.

 

1st and 2nd stage alarms are for assigned crew only (calling them to their assigned emergency stations) - 3rd stage alarm is for pax (see above)

Flights out of JFK, LGA (La Guardia), and PHL were all delayed today.

Isn't the 2nd stage alarm also for PAX: Return to your cabins and prepare to muster?

I would not want to risk flying in the day of embarkation from any airport during winter

At the second alarm you are supposed to go to your cabin and await further instructions. Then proceed to the promenade deck and lifeboat station as usual. However, many people still head straight to their lifeboat station at the first alarm. Some find it confusing.

We just commented we are worried about flying in the late afternoon of the day before.
