Aground?

Post by Mervyn and Trish » 14 May 2019, 09:08

Has Calamity Edge run aground? She was due in to Southampton at 4.30 this morning but seems to have been static in the Solent since about that time.

She was berthed at City dock yesterday morning, by gosh but she does have a very ugly bow.

Yes she was on a one night outing. Out yesterday due back in today. Don't know if it was a booze cruise or a press trip.

Of course where's she's static may constitute back in Southampton. Maybe she's on a 14 nighter with only one port and that's Southampton as a tender port. She does seem to have one tender in the water. Maybe the Captain has fallen in it.

a friend of JD is onboard. I looked to see where she was sailing and it turned out to be a TA jolly - she doesn't sail until 15th....

Saw Celebrity Edge when I was in St Maartens Christmas time - she was on the front line up of some huge ships - Britannia looked small in comparison :crazy: Looked very glitzy and the restaurant which seems to hang off the side of the ship very intriguing.

It will need to be an oscar winning jolly to produce award winning TA sales at the prices Celebrity are asking.

We sat on Cowes seafront this evening and watched Celebrity Edge sail past. Certainly not a very attractive ship especially on the starboard side and the unusual looking bow looks quite odd. Probably not the ship for us.
