Crystal Serenity and Symphony

Hi Janis

Great catch as usual.

There does not seem to be as much ice floating in the bay as I have seen when visiting the area in previous years.

Today in the port of Barcelona, there is the Crystal Serenity, looking at Ventura, and Grand Princess, who is looking at Serenity. :)

A busy day in Dubrovnik today, with Ocean Princess, Crystal Serenity and P&O Azura visiting.

Crystal Serenity is sandwiched between Ocean Princess and Azura.

Breakfast With ' The World ' !

Tonight Crystal Serenity has moored in Piraeus harbour right behind the apartment ship ' The World '.

I wonder if we will be able to see any of her passengers having breakfast on their balconies not knowing there is a webcam pointed at them ! :hoh: :laugh:

Picture below from the webcam on Crystal Serenity .

Not sure what happened to Crystal Serenity the other day, but I noticed on the bridge cam that the railing on the front seemed to be dented in, and the mast had fallen over. Maybe she was hit by a giant wave?? not sure, does anyone know?

Hi Christopher.

Many thanks for spotting this damage to the ship.

It looks more like wave damage or it is possble something dropped across the bows.

Not too sure if it is now possible to check back on her recent cruise and where she would have been when this happened.

There has been some inclement weather in the Mediterranean and Bosphorus areas in recent weeks.

Don't know what happened, it was fine on when I looked at the cam on the 27th when CS was in Ashdod.

They seem to have removed the bent bits now

ahem snipped from....elsewhere :shhh:

....a small runaway barge in the Ashdod harbor crashed into the pier in front of the pier. Some of the wiring from the barge got tangled in the railing of the Serenity and on the small mast on the bow of the ship which cause some minor damage. In short, just a very small cosmetic repair is all that is needed.

Hi Beth

Gold Star for you !

Many thanks for finding the news about the ship being damaged .

Would not say it is just a cosmetic repair when the railings have been removed ! :hoh:

Hi Beth

Pictures from the Crystal Serenity webcam in Venice today which also show the ex ' Happy Cruises ' chartered ship ' Happy Dolphin. '

Her charter was cancelled after ' Happy Cruises ' had some financial problems.

Although Greek owned, ' Happy Dolphin ' has now been in Venice over a month.
