OMG a go-kart track on Escape is terrible news

I don't recall a post indicating that it happened.  In fact - there was an aerial shot indicating it had NOT happened...

Yes, I think that shot is embedded or linked earlier in this thread, but she was at the yard for another 10 or so days after the photo was taken/posted.

Escape was photographed by Port Rotterdam ship spotters when leaving the yard and heading back to sea, those shots were shared too. There was no track added. :classic_smile:

The Bliss left Bar, Montenegro for Augusta, Italy on 2 August, and has now left Augusta bound for Bar again, arriving 6 August. What is she doing? Collecting crew?

With her first passenger sailing on 24 October, how soon will they try to have a full crew aboard?

Or maybe giving?  Escape is also in Augusta, but was in Portland UK for a while and then at the yard in Brest so it doesn't seem like she would have had more than the minimum of crew.

With eights ships in the Med at hold, one cruising in Greece, two holding at the Netherlands Antilles, two at both end of the Panama canal, two in Port of Miami, another one moored on the east coast and one cruising in Alaska there's a strong presence in the Med. As others said, they are probably transferring crew. Why would you risk a flight with strangers involved if you have your own floating bubble. :classic_happy:

 

NCL never had nine ships in the Med, it may have been a long awaited wish with Epic doing the same round year after year.. it's not how it should be!

 

Well, here's the list:

 

Norwegian Bliss; underway to Bar, Montenegro

Norwegian Breakaway; moored, La Seyne sur Mer/Toulon, FR. 
Norwegian Dawn; moored, Marseille, FR

Norwegian Encore; cruising in Alaska, underway to Seattle.

Norwegian Epic; out for a spin, Civitavecchia (Rome), IT

Norwegian Escape; underway to Brindisi, IT (rendezvous with Getaway and/or Spirit) 
Norwegian Gem; moored, Port of Miami

Norwegian Getaway; moored, Brindisi, IT
Norwegian Jade; cruising Greek isles, docked at Corfu, GR

Norwegian Jewel; moored, Port of Miami

Norwegian Joy; moored, Oranjestad

Norwegian Pearl; moored, Curacao

Norwegian Sky; moored, Colon, Panama
Norwegian Spirit; moored, Brindisi, IT

Norwegian Star; moored, Marseille, FR. 

Norwegian Sun; at anchor, south of Panama Canal. 

Pride of America: moored, Portland, OR.

Can't speak directly to Bliss crew,  but Friend just got rejoin verification for Joy yesterday. 

Another is mid way through her quarantine on the Epic. 

She was fully vaccinated at home and joined directly. 

Other crew transferred from the Spirit where they were vaccinated and completed quarantine.  More are onboard awaiting ship assignments. Seems to be the "holding " ship for crew currently. 

*timelines seem to vary between 5-7 weeks now for their rejoin notifications and boarding prior to first pax cruise.
