There has been a later Vlog from Stephen - see post 290. That's the problem with media articles, by the time they are written they are out of date.

I found them really hard to listen to - I know he is under incredible stress but only when his wife/partner talked did I get a handle on what is happening so I gave up listening a few days ago.

He'd calmed down a bit in the last one. 🤣 Unlike his Dad I don't think he's used to public speaking. His wife is lovely though, and makes things very clear.

Diamond Princess has had a Level-3 deep cleaning by Belfor at a Yokohama shipyard.

Japan has lifted quarantine from vessel & ship remains at dockyard for refurbishment / replacement of furnishings.

Will be ready for summer season in Japan?

If you are talking this year I doubt it, next year summer we can only wait and see how things progress.

I would put my money on a return to service this year. If the Japanese authorities let it sail and their domestic market boards for holidays then it is likely to be the first Princess ship to return to service.

Japan is about to go into emergency lockdown, there will be no sailing this year:
