Would they have any reason to stop at Madeira? Perhaps to pick up supplies or provisions?

It didn't stop. Probably too big to stop. 

 

More likely, no reason to stop...

She's carrying something on the helipad.

 

Maybe part of the crane?😉

Probably whatever was in Freeport for the azipod work.  Brought the parts with them for the repair.

Looks like they might be ready?

 

The description roughly translates to “Ready to receive one of the biggest cruise ships in the world” and the person who posted the short clip appears to be a worker at Cádiz

Current position, estimated track, and ETA if she stays on this course at this speed:

With the help of google translate, I’ve been able to correspond with one of the workers at the shipyard in Cádiz. He confirmed that Oasis is arriving at 11am on 4/17 ( about 5:00am New York time) and that she is having the same work done that was supposed to be completed in the Bahamas as well as repairs from the accident. I’m not a Spanish speaker so the translation is probably off a bit but I’m thankful to this individual for providing info to a complete stranger.

I wonder if Oasis will go alongside a dock there first as Carnival Sunrise is still showing up on Marine Traffic as being in the dry dock and I thought I read somewhere here that it would take a bit to set up the blocks for Oasis once the Carnival ship left?

The video from post #1556 might be indicating this area...

Do you know when they plan on moving the carnival ship out of the dry dock?

 

No, I'm just social media stalking. It's soon though as theres a lot of "goodbye Cadiz", and "well that's over with" types of posts.

I love that you have these stalking skills! It’s also why I tell my kids that we don’t use social media! Hahaha!

Thanks for collecting and sharing! I’m sure there are Carnival keeps all over that are dying to get Sunrise out of that dock to see what she looks like!

Well I must admit... you are VERY good at what you do! Thanks for all the "behind the scenes" reports

Probably another crane fell on it during the crossing.

Then empty the dock, 24-36 hours to reset the blocks, and then refill the dock.  Easily 48-72 hours from the time Sunrise leaves the dock until they are ready for Oasis.

You sir are correct! She parked there a couple hours ago.
