Nieuw Statendam sail away, Jan. 30 at 5:00pm

Good catch.  It doesn't seen to be mentioned in any of the cruise listings.  I believe this is the Oprah "Girlfriends" cruise before the dedication.

Yes, it's the O cruise. Think there are back in port on Feb. 2 and next sailing is on Sunday, Feb. 3.

What is the cherry picker doing? Is it adding some sort of banner on the side of the ship?

I'm curious if she will actually leave on time, or because of the celebrity stuff going on that she might leave later.

It was on Port schedule that I noticed it.

The original departure time on PE Schedule was later tonight...  They obviously changed to an earlier departure but doesn't look like they are in a hurry...

Do you think the tug that is circling around is going to give them a Fire Hose salute?

Cherry pickers are rented by the ships and used by the sailors for washing, cleaning and painting (where allowed). If your eagle eyes saw them adding a banner, my guess is, it has to do with the "friends of O" charter. They've done that sorta thing before however, usually, a banner is just attached to the railing on P-Deck

Very possible Leon, since arrivals are usually during hours of darkness
