Speculation time.  I know Captain Jerome comes on board with me and guess he will stay on for the transatlantic.  I'm then guessing Captain Dag will stay until the handover and then retire.  I wonder if HAL will lend Captain Jerome for a transition period with Phoenix Reisen or move him to a new ship.

 

Any other guesses?

Schedule shows Captains Robert Schuchmann and Dag Dvergastein as her final two masters with Capt. Schuchmann doing the handover to Phoenix Reisen in July next year

If there are a number of contractors on board. Do they have to do a Muster Drill.

 

Dropping lines.

Thanks John.  It isn't often I hear Prinsendam described as a "large passenger vessel".

Actually Roy, Capt. Schuchman goes by the very Dutch first name of Jeroen; my mistake

Edge isn't back until Sunday - we should be able to see a little bit of Oostie from behind X-Infinity.

No toots usually for drydock, I don't think.  I don't remember her tooting when she went into her other dry dock.

Couldn't join in as I couldn't get into CC 😞. But, I did enjoy watching her sail even if I couldn't have the fun of chatting with all of you.

Thanks for the great webcam Lou & Dave and Kathi, thank you for starting the thread.

 

Great screenshots Allan & Roy & 65 Gator!

I know when I sailed my Celebrity Solstice TA in 2012 the Westerdam left for drydock and tooted up a storm.  I had my hopes up.

Dang!  Missed her!  I had back to back events this morning until 1:00 p.m.  Thank you so much for posting the pictures.  By this time in two weeks we will be onboard for our 14 day Holiday tour.  My all-time favorite ship!  (But then, there are a few HAL ships I haven't met.  Guess I need to get busy and sample the rest of them.)  I know there will be a Nieuw Statendam cruise somewhere on my schedule this year, as the most recent Statendam's inaugural year was my introduction to modern HAL cruises.  Need to bookend my HAL inaugurals.
