Philip Stolte just posted an update from the Flying Dutchman. Cleared by Indonesian authorities, but will have to wait in line until May 1st to dock.

Good news. Hope nothing gets in the way of completing the plan.

And I assume Amsterdam is still carrying the World Cruise passengers' luggage?  To be shipped to ??? from Indonesia?   

Hoping for a positive outcome for all, under the trying circumstances of these days everywhere in the world.  Maureen--

I wonder if the thought has arisen in the minds of the 2020 world cruise guests that are booked for 2021:  just keep my luggage aboard; that's less that I will have to pack in the Fall.

I'm thinking more like Malaysia

Check post #235.  Hal indicates, as does Copper10-8, that luggage will be sent from Malaysia.  I don't know where, but there is another thread about 2021 WC passengers hoping their luggage can just be held on board.  Another first world problem that I wish I had.  Cherie

I believe that the luggage thread you referenced and that particular post regarding luggage being kept on board until the next world cruise was made tongue in cheek.

Amsterdam off Tanjung Priok (Jakarta) waiting to get in to repat Indonesian crew; latest news from onboard; looking at Fri 01 May - always subject to change 😉

You'd have to have a lot of patience to be a ship's captain, especially in these trying times.  Welcome to the end of the WC, Captain Jonathan!  Safe trip home for you and your officers.

So they haven't finished yet?  Is Manila their last port?

 

Manilla is their last port in order to repatriate crew, at least for now. They are allegedly then going back to Malaysia for a layup period with a skeleton crew

Thanks.  I thought they were at that stage of the journey now.

Nope; minus the small group of Springboks who were allowed to disembark in Durban a couple of weeks ago, she still has her full crew onboard

I thought the crew were disembarking at this next port.  Are Indonesian crew the biggest group or Philippine ?

I think you're right that the thought was thrown out "tongue in cheek" and then there were a few comments that it really wasn't such a bad idea. I'm sure totally unfeasible.  Cherie

The Indonesians are always the biggest group, followed by the Filipinos

Are there any prospects for getting Captain Mercer home?

 

Roy

 

That would depend on factors such as international airline travel back to the States and local restrictions. We will learn from his blog, so I would suggest keeping an eye on it 😉

We'll soon see if Bali is still part of the game plan. Batam was initially, but it got cancelled

John:

You must have some one on the ship tipping you off. I suspect it might be Jonathan Mercer.

Sorry Father, Capt. Mercer has much more important items to be concerned with than tipping me off. Stay safe!!
