Cunard Webcams

Recommended Posts

Here are bridge webcam images for the Cunard fleet. This latest version of the "Cunard Webcams" page has been modified to support the updates that were made to the Cruise Critic Community Boards in October 2018.

For reference, here are direct links to the webcam images themselves.

Please note, as with previous versions of this page, your browser may serve up stale copies of these images stored in its internal cache from previous visits to this page. You may need to perform a hard refresh of this page to see the latest versions of these images from the Cunard website. For example, in most windows browsers, a hard refresh is accomplished via the ctrl-f5 key combination. When viewing this page on a phone, it can get a bit more complicated, involving going through your browser settings to clear cached images. But given these limitations, I hope some of you will continue to find this page useful.

Hattie,

Having problems viewing.

 

Could the page be recreated to avoid difficulties.

 

Otherwise will view on other websites the images are available.

 

Thank you...

As the author of this page, I'll jump in here.

 

I have also been having problems recently viewing these Cunard bridge webcam images in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Interestingly, I'm not having any problem viewing the images in Internet Explorer.

 

I think the problem is related to the new Cunard website that has been brought on line recently (or more specifically the cookies implemented by the new website). The workaround I have found is to delete cookies and site data within those browsers. Then the bridge webcam images appear for me within this post once again.

 

Unfortunately, that workaround is a nuisance and only lasts until some point after you once again visit the new Cunard website which recreates the cookies and site data for that site within your browser.

 

By the way, once the bridge webcam images stop working here (in Chrome and Firefox), they also stop working for me on all other sites that use these same standard "cunard.com" URL's to access the Cunard bridge webcam images. I have found a few other sites that show different versions of the bridge webcam images, but I'm not convinced those images are necessarily the current webcam images. Maybe I'll do some more investigating to see if I can find other current versions of the Cunard webcam images that can be used reliably here.

Dear bluemarble,

As always, thank you for your response.

 

Still problems viewing so I did go to the other sites that I have no problems with any browser with full screen imagine.

 

But again, thank you...

OK, this is going to get rather techie. By trial and error, I've determined that the webcam images in this sticky (which reside on "www.cunard.com") become inaccessible in Google Chrome on my desktop PC after the following cookie is created by a visit to the new Cunard website.

 

Name: ASCookie

Content: AEMOrigin

Domain: www.cunard.com

 

I have no idea why this particular cookie is interferring with retrieving the webcam images, but I've found that deleting just this one cookie restores the functionality of this sticky from within Chrome. Also, the specific content of "AEMOrigin" for this cookie seems to be relevant. On a couple occassions while testing on the new Cunard UK website, this cookie happened to be created with a content of "AOrigin". In those cases, this sticky continued to operate correctly.

 

Go figure.

They look OK on my phone

 

Are you using an Android phone with Chrome for your browser and have you visited the new Cunard website in Chrome on your phone? That's the combination that messes things up for me anyway. Results may be different in the UK though, depending on how that cookie named "ASCookie" is created for you in Chrome. Unfortunately, I don't know how to look at specific cookie settings in Chrome on a phone rather than a desktop PC.

 

After visiting the new Cunard website, I can still see the webcam images here for a while, but once I clear "Cached images and files" in Chrome to simulate a hard refresh and ensure that I see the latest webcam images, here is what I start seeing instead. I think the same thing happens if I don't specifically clear the cached images but wait long enough for Chrome to consider the images stale and it tries to retrieve the latest images on its own.

And by the way, at this point if I click on one of the direct links in the sticky to attempt to bring up one of the images that way, I get this error message.

 

Resource at '/webcams/qm2.jpg' not found: No resource found

Cannot serve request to /webcams/qm2.jpg on this server


Apache Sling

 

 

But then, if I clear "Cookies and site data" in Chrome, I'm back to the normal functionality.

Edit to add: I'm not seeing this issue when accessing the boards on my phone via Tapatalk instead of Chrome.
