That is unfortunate...they are not berthed in the city center like usual, so they have missed the cruise down the Nord Zee Kanal which is always spectacular. They will also be missed on the city center cruise terminal webcams too :(

How far away is the ship from the center? I have not cruised to or from Amsterdam.

It's a fair few miles from Ijmuiden to the city center...the sail down the canal takes about 2-4 hours depending on traffic, so the coach ride into the city will be about an hour (again depending on traffic).

Not sure why she isn't in the city center berth since it is empty...unless its down to tides when Opera arrived this morning.

Thanks Ally. Too bad about the location. I am sure Boo will know why they docked there but will enjoy her day nevertheless.

Looks like a very nice evening as the ship wends its way to Oslo.

There is a possibility that Opera will be diverted from Oslo due to ongoing strike action at the port. Dockers and pilots are out on strike and have already caused problems for 3 ships with a 4th already cancelled...so Boo might not get to see Oslo and currently the alternative port has not been announced for any of the cruise ships, however, last year when the bomb explosion and subsequent shootings occurred, all ships were diverted to Kristiansand instead.

From what Kim just posted, Opera will be going to Gothenburg, Sweden instead of a alternative Norwegian port.

MSC Opera never went to Oslo, if you look on marinetraffic.com her last port was Gothenburg. I think it is the shipping company that is a little bit late with the updates.
