ms Oosterdam in Juneau July 30, 2019

Recommended Posts

It's a full house in Juneau with six ships visiting port.

 

Oosterdam will be at the CT dock from 1300-2100.

 

Also in port are Radiance OTS at the AS dock from 0700-2130, Viking Orion tendering from 0800-1700, Golden Princess at the FKL dock from 0800-2115, and Norwegian Joy (0700-1330) and Bliss (1430-2300) at the AJ dock.

 

Finally a nice day!  The forecast is for a mainly sunny day with a high of 67F/19C and a low of 50F/10C.  Sunrise is at 4:44 am and sunset at 9:23 pm.

Next up:  Westerdam on Wednesday.

Well, we got lucky with no panning and a tendering ship - but also no WP.

 

Weather sounds better - so maybe Oostie will get some close-ups. I intend to be here to find out.

Should back in time for sail in, sounds like a busy day.

I have a commitment which will prevent me from being here at sail in time.

Oostie about to, or in the process of, picking up her two Southeast Alaska pilots at Kake pilot station. They will stay on board a little less than four days until disembarking in Ketchikan on Friday

So they stay on board during the port calls.  Do they get paid for all that?

They are mandated to be on board while the ship is in certain Alaskan waters (they switch off taking shifts on the bridge and each is assigned a cabin just behind the bridge) so yes, they stay on board during the port calls at Juneau and Sitka (departing in Ketchikan). I have no specific knowledge about their pay schedule

I don't think we can expect a WP but at least the camera isn't panning.

Not much of a gap between Radiance and Joy but Oostie should be here soon.

Plus a relatively nice day; what else can one wish for besides a million dollars

Pop quiz and so easy, even I know the answer;

 

What does the Dutch "Oost" in Oosterdam stand for?

A zoom would be nice but not likely.
