How come the Europeans see everything?  :(
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: The Ferry Man on November 17, 2009, 15:28:32
How come the Europeans see everything?  :(

Porbably because we have a lot of coastline, and lots of places for vessels to berth. America has one coastline, where as Europe is amde up of islands in funny shapes to give maximum coastlines

Found this site with a cruise schedule of 2010 in the Netherlands and Belgium

http://www.cruisefans.nl/cruiseschema2010.html

and here are some translations:

Rederij = shipping line
Aankomst = arrival
Vertrek = departure
Plaats = location

Maandag = Monday

Woensdag = Wednesday
Donderdag = Thursday
Vrijdag = Friday
Zaterdag = Saterday
Zondag = Sunday

Hope this help you all  ;)

and probably because much of the ships have their home ports in Europe.

Hello...

oh how many nice ships can you see in the Real life... you don't now what you have...

I live in Croatia - Rovinj. It's a nice truristic port so i see some cruiser but there are just 4-5 them and i don't seee any other ships... just cruisers but i see a many many largest yachts....

Al ships i saw in real life ( dome of them didn't take a picture )!

Club Med 2:
WindSurf:
WindStar:
Insignia:
Nautica:
Seabourn Spirit:
Le Levante:
Seabourn Odyssey:
Royal Clipper:
The Emerald Piraeus:

But we don't have a lot of ships BUT we have can see the world's largest mega sailor ( cruiser ) ship: Club Med 2!
It is the largest sailor ship and it is wisiting Rovinj almost every weeck! I hawe a lot of picture of him in the other mobile phone i need to get them and show them to you...

But steeal the largest ship visited Rovinj is the Seabourn Odyssey! The new ship from Miammi! Somwhere about 185-190 m.

I know what is that for you... you can see largest ships with 340 meters like QM2 and other... but i like even that litle i see.

Biliarder Roman Abramovich wich is popular with his yachts ( Pelorus , Ecstasea and other ) is wisiting Rovinj every Summer with bouth his yachts! I can see Pelorus and Ecstasea every summer!
Now he is building the new world largest MegaYacht: Eclipse! She is about 170 meter... like a cruiser....
I hope he'l come next year and that i'l see the yacht...

But steal the largest ship i saw was the amasing: The Emerald Princes ower 300 m!
I saw it in Dubrovnik last yer... it's amasing. We were driving in the bus 10 minuts by here...

Some of the ships i took the picture:

Seabourn Odyssey:

The ship that i now REALLY want to see is the Queen Elizabeth 2. Because she is the only 'Cunard Queen' i didn't had a chance to see :'( :'(

Well, she came last in 2007 but in that year i didn't had much interests in ships.

According to an interview with an officer on board he said that they have a weekend off because they where training with the NAVO in Norway. So they had permission to have a look around in Rotterdam for a little break.  :lol:

As of the jets and helicopters, they already dropped those vehicles of in airbases in Scotland.

On my dad's resquest, he wanted to show where we usually take photos.

The yellow dots mark where we take photos (zoom in first). (they are alongside the Nieuwe Maas)

We usually stand at Hoek van Holland, Vlaardingen, Katendrecht and Wilhelminapier (Kop van Zuid).

Those are the so called "flippers" which they attach to the side of the hull during heavy lift operations. With those pontoons attatched to it the waterline surface increase which gives the vessel a much better stability during heavy lift ops

It's a bit hypnotic

I think that's what they call a ducktail stern, which makes the ship more fuel efficient or something. Correct me if I'm wrong though :)

Insignia in Rotterdam??

What is she doing there??

She supposed to be here these time?? Last summer she visited Rovinj about 10 times. It's very nice ship, i like it!  ;)

It is possible that she wouldn't be here in Rovinj these summer??

Maybe at least her sister Nautica will come, they are the same, i really like them.
Nautica was attacked by the pirates some years ago...

Here are some mine pictures from last summer in Rovinj.

May I ask what sailing ship you mean?

If you mean the one docked to the pier, than IT IS the Eendracht because I saw the name on the stern myself.

Both the Stena Hollandica in herself and the fact she is carrying P&O trailers means P&O is at rock bottom ::)

Some nice pics of the Stena Transporter (Now in Italy as the Strada Corsa) taken from the Pride of Rotterdam. Look at the containers.... (In the second picture you can see the old Stena Hollandica in the same spot as MJ's picture was taken)

I saw more P&O containers on the Stena ships than on POR!!!

There is nothing unusual in this, P&O as a transport company and P&O as a shipping company are two separate outfits, obviously where possible they will put P&O trailers on a P&O ship, but in the end they just put them wherever they need to, to get them where they have to be.

If you look at all of the big container ship companies, they all carry each others containers all the time (although I was once on an Andrew Weir ship where the chief officer spent ages arranging all of the Andrew Weir containers along the outboard sides!)

I'm sorry to disappoint you all but, without noticing it, the MS Insignia came a day earlier (today).  :'(

She was already gone by five but I couldn't see her anyway because of the weather.

Grimaldi was also my first thought. Grimaldi has a line service to Kallo, Belgium. They might await the tide there or anchor there for bunkers.

Not via the bridge wing but via the deck, yes. They have to cross our ship to get ashore  :) We'll have to start asking toll, our paint on deck wears out with all the vessels coming alongside and people crossing our deck  :doh:

There are hanging wooden fenders between both vessels.

I think you confused her with the Millenium as they are of the same class.
I also have taken a look on the cruise schedule of Willemstad and I only saw the Millenium which last visited Willemstad in late April.

If the weather holds up in the weekend than I'll be able to see the Westerdam which I didn't got the chance to see her before.

BUT, if the weather is really good (ALL DAY LONG), than I'm going to visite the SS Rotterdam!!  :2thumbs:

Here we stand on this little foredeck just above the bowdeck

(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2448.jpg)

Here we stand on the Bridge deck which is above the Upper Promonade deck and before the Sun Deck.
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2458.jpg)
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2459.jpg)

Now we go into the bridge itself

(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2498.jpg)

Here we went towards the stern on the Boat deck
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2542.jpg)

And from that part of the deck we climbed up to the Sun Deck
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2542.jpg)
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2555.jpg)
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2557.jpg)

Now we go our we towards the engine rooms through several rooms
(Smoking Room on Upper Promonade deck)

(Pool on D Deck)

(This is what appears to be some kind of motherboard)
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2649.jpg)

After this we took a hall which leads to a staircase which goes to the upper decks
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2656.jpg)

Eventually we came out on the upper promonade deck and than we found our way out off the ship.
Here are the last few photographs of the ship
(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2673.jpg)

(http://i801.photobucket.com/albums/yy291/VirtualSkipper/SS%20Rotterdam/IMG_2696.jpg)

We stayed 2 hours on this ship...

After we got off the ship, we were heading straight for the Westerdam.  :)

I hope you all have liked the tour and if not, no returns  :lol:

Because the longer a ship is in service the bigger chance of someone dying aboard it. Also if it served as a troop ship at one point it has an even bigger chance of being haunted. :thumbs:

The Parkkade in Rotterdam. The name of the little passenger boat is the, if you translate it, Pancake boat. You can eat pancakes while you make a cruise around the port of Rotterdam  ;D

Excellent pix guys, especially like the close ups of the P&O ferry TFK - you can get back to the painting now, after your clever 'still-life' composition with the paint pots ;D

Oceandream - did you manage to get a full length of the Grand Princess tied up alongside??

Surprised we haven't seen any pix of the Queen Elizabeth??

Keep up the brilliant work

Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: The Ferry King on October 30, 2010, 22:36:37
we were only allowed on car deck, bridge and engine room.
the passenger decks were still being build and due to safety matters. We were only
able to take a picture from the top open deck..

i think they want to keep the lounge decks as a surprise to show
how it will look like when its finished.

But some pics were also from internet but most by me :2thumbs:
 i'm not lying.
Spirit of france is also going on well but i couldnt see it
maybe she was at a different dock or just behind some buildings

i really hope i can go on it after it is released in january 2011.
i have also sended these pics to p&o website..Hope they used it for something

pics taken in STX europe hope you liked them all

... and a few days later one of my all time favourites: the PoT - laid up for sale. Some people were grinding rust from her - I wish that Thy Ferries had managed to start up their Hanstholm-Kristiansand-line ...

Don't know where the vessel is now.

Yes, I just read it on Faktaomfartyg.se, right after I posted the pic.

I wonder if she's ever going to sail a European route again. Last time I was on her (is this family safe?) was in the summer 2007 (is this normal for a man like me?) on my way to Langesund. It was quite to see her again in that state or condition.

Post by: The Ferry King on December 15, 2010, 20:43:12
that is quite big,
but i expected something like carnival dream or Oasis of the seas..
but looking at your berth i can see thereason why.
but i hope they will come
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic (QUEEN ELIZABETH!!!)
Post by: oceandream on December 15, 2010, 20:44:21
From the looks of it Oasis will not come here say allot of people and sites..
So i dont bother  :-\
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic (QUEEN ELIZABETH!!!)
Post by: The Ferry King on December 15, 2010, 20:45:17
yeah but i think you will see her a day..

but carninal Dream is not too big and can fit into the berth..
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic (QUEEN ELIZABETH!!!)
Post by: oceandream on December 15, 2010, 20:46:38
The weather depth at the berth is something like 46 meters
So even Knock Nevis could dock there with easy while fully loaded
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic (QUEEN ELIZABETH!!!)
Post by: The Ferry King on December 15, 2010, 20:51:00
yeah so i found no reason for not bringing the Carnival Dream
maybe it could be that the berth is not big enough
or the bridge is too small for the height of the cruise ship
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic (QUEEN ELIZABETH!!!)
Post by: oceandream on December 15, 2010, 21:36:32
Look
In this foto you see the following things
Red is where any cruise ship higher then 53 meters more, because the bridge is 55 meters above sea level
Blue is where smaller cruise ships like 49 meters and lower more
Big cruisers more infront of the bridge and are not allowed too deeper  :doh:

Those this help TFK?

I found some (live) webcams that may interest some of you (and please don't post comments like 'I already know them':

Port Everglades Inlet cam:
http://southeastflorida.com/inletcam/

Sound has been added a little while ago and is on 24/7 so you can enjoy the ship horns. Also the Allure/Oasis of the Seas arrive in PE in every weekend. Saterday is Oasis of the Seas, Sunday is Allure of the Seas.

Port Canaveral cam:
http://www.portcanaveral.com/webcam.htm

This cam does not include sound but the Freedom of the Seas and the new ships of Disney Cruise Line comes to this port.

Panama Canal webcam:
http://www.pancanal.com/eng/photo/camera-java.html

Shows live images of all the locks of the Panama Canal and the building sites. This site is for the ones who are interested in cargo ships. Cruiseships also come here sometimes.

Meyer Werft webcam:
http://www.meyerwerft.com/page.asp?lang=e&main=2&subs=0&did=826

Watch the newest ships getting built. AIDAsol and Celebrity Silhouette are now in vision. The images are weekly updated.

Willemstad webcam:
http://www.liveincuracao.com/livewebcams/

Here, on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, is a hot place for cruiseships. 2, maybe 3 cruisehips comes a week. Also some oil tankers and cargo ships come here.

If you know more good webcams, please post them.  :)

Don't worry OD, there will be plenty more cruise ships in Curacao, also it's better to say let down instead of down letted.

@clanky sorry never heard about that ship was it a time ago or not ?
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: clanky on April 03, 2011, 19:20:07
It's a while since I was in Sceveningen yes, but as far as i know the Royalist is still sailing, she is a sail training ship operated by the sea cadets in the UK, I used to sail on her occasionally as the engineer for a week at a time.

More info here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TS_Royalist)

An engineer on a sailing ship... did you blow the sails if the wind was gone?  :lol:
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: clanky on April 03, 2011, 19:33:09
An engineer on a sailing ship... did you blow the sails if the wind was gone?  :lol:

Haha, yeah, it's not exactly the most taxing job in the world, she does have 2 "main engines" and 2 generators (both are about the size of a lorry engine, but the whole point is that they try really hard not to use them apart from manoeuvring in and out of port (and they occasionally do even that without engines).

There is of course something to do every day even if it is repairing a leaky tap in the galley.  The permanent engineer at the time when I used to sail on Royalist wasn't particularly great with electrics, so I used to spend quite a lot of my time on board looking at electrical faults.  I also used to do a bit of sailing as well.
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: Ballast on April 03, 2011, 19:52:17
Must be a complete different life.

I always have great respect for the engineers who can find those nasty electric faults, especially when they walk around like Sherlock Holmes with a spyglass (metaforically  :P) and a fault finder.

And also today, the 15th of April 2011, we remember the RMS Titanic which sank 99 years ago when she sunk on April 15 1912.  :'(

YOu really hate the new p&o builds dont you!
YOu have already said about The shipsbeing on the alang yard being scrapped into pieces like finnjet!

These ships will be scrapped in a different yard not alang

My issue isn't with the ships themselves- the yard that built them is a very good one. My issue is with their future and... well let us just say if I were to put my comments about the professional standards of some ferry operators then I dare say a goderator would delete this post on the grounds it may offend some employees at that once great flag carrier ferry operation.

Indeed, my prediction is that certain new ferries- which may or may not be the two in question- will soon be handed over to a new operator.

My experiences with "some ferry operators" in the Irish Sea has actually been quite positive in terms of the way that they maintain the ships, while these ships are indeed well built by a good yard they are (like all modern ships) designed for a finite lifespan.

While they may well end up on the beach at Alang within the next 20 years it will be a case of sensible economics rather than mismanagement, I wouldn't expect to see a different logo on the funnel any time soon.

Post by: Stuart2007 on April 20, 2011, 11:46:23
Clanky, I've recently learned that you are an experienced maritime engineer so I would dare not question your knowledge of ship design or management.

I would firstly just make clear (since we all know which barge operator I'm referring to) that my questioning their method of operation is NOT relating to the safe operation of their vessels. They quite rightly have a good safety record.

My concern is their commercial ability. I am not at all impressed with their current CEO who I regard as lacklustre, weak, lacking vision and basically boring. Too many industries think consolidation is the sole way to go; it is not. consolidation will buy you time to recover a business, but it's not something you should rely on forever.

Take for example them finishing western channel routes- all taken over by competitors that are doing quite nicely on that now. Indeed, when they saw competition on the Cherbourg route, the other lot were ready (I believe) to finish, only for this lot to announce they were finishing themselves... They won a commercial war and then- handed it all over.

I think that 'this ferry company' has put too much faith in just two vessels. They are basing their future on freight trade- right at the wrong time. Personally I believe that this lot are likely to be sold off in a merger with another company.

Perhaps someone will buy out this lot and another ailing barge operator based in Calais and turn it into one profitable operator???
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: clanky on April 20, 2011, 18:01:03
Ahhh right, in that case I can see where you are coming from, but to be honest the competition is also fairly poor, when you look at the other operators the price competition is making what were once routes which could be operated at reasonable rates unprofitable and non-viable, this is especially so in the channel where the competition form the channel tunnel is huge in terms of passenger numbers and with freight rates being at their lowest for years many companies are struggling.

LD's attempts at starting a Dover / Boulogne Service failed despite fairly competent management (although the lack of reliability of the vessels which they chartered didn't help them much), ultimately there are too many dogs fighting over too few scraps in the channel so they are all operating at the limits of profitability.
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: Stuart2007 on April 20, 2011, 18:03:40
Then there's the eu- and its tunnel friendly/anti shipping attitude.

I hate the eu with an absolute passion for what it is doing to prevent trade with our neighbours in Europe. Careful Clanky or we'll have a tunnel under the Bay of Biscay and rail transport only- soon you'll only be able to travel by train methinks.

The time is ripe!
MS Azura is now on her way from Southampton to Rotterdam.
She arrives at the Wilhelminapier somewhere around 10 o' clock in the morning where I shall see her dock.

Also the weather is told to be very good tomorrow;
10C to 15C in the morning and 26C at noon!  ;D

I also just hope it will be a cloudless and rainless day, but the ironic thing is that it hasn't literally rained for weeks now, which is very rare in Holland.  :P
But it's only good for my photos.  ;)

The MS Azura!  ;D

Enjoy the pictures.  :)

Copyright of all photos is by me, you can also find them on my website.

Here you can see the beautiful old town of Dubrovnik, which is one of the most visited cruise destinations in south europe.

The first ship was the Zenith from Pullmantur Cruises, which visited the port on April the 20th 2011
I took the pictures from the house beach of my hotel and in the habour.

Enjoy them!

Looks like a sailing convoy to me.  :P

Anyways, I was just checking out the site which says what ships will come to Rotterdam and I just saw that ALL the cruises of the MS Rotterdam are gone! There were like 15 trips to Rotterdam and now that is all gone. :o
So this means that the Ryndam (on Sunday) and Queen Elizabeth (30 August) are the last cruisecalls for this year.

The bridgedeck of a bridge in my town dropped down 30 meters yesterday!  :o
It began just when a big yaght wanted to sail through it and now it is docked at the side of the river so if it won't rain tomorrow, I'll be able to photograph it.  :)
The yaght is called the 'Tango' and also because of the defect bridge the traffic has been stopped so what they only can do is wait.

Here's a videolink to the yaght.

Today was a very big day.

I got to spot the Ryndam, and.... I got a tour on that yacht which I was talking about!  ;D
There isn't really much to tell about the interior because most of it wasn't finished yet but I can tell something about the upperdecks and the engine room:
The walls were mostly made out of marble and the floor was heated and was made of massive wood. The suites weren't finished yet so you couldn't see really much of the luxury in it, but you could see the size of them!  :o
The engine room was mostly finished but the propellers weren't mounted on the axes yet. However, the bow and stern thruster were already installed. The ship has 4 dieselengines which each have 4000 HP so that's a total of 16000 HP.

Enough chatter, here are the pictures! :

Very nice Pics Oceandream,  :2thumbs:

I think this could be a nice Port for a shipsimulation. I have seen the Serenade of the seas on your Pics, I love the Radiance class cruiseships, they look a bit like a big Yacht.

Thor

If on 30th August will be good weather (and if I get free from work  :P) I will be able to spot the MS Queen Elizabeth of Cunard Line again when she comes to Rotterdam! Sadly, she will close this years' cruise season.  :(

Here's a self taken photo of last year (I know, it was kinda foggy).

Hi Ballast - long time no speak  ;D - I guess with your comment above you haven't been on board the ex Broere tankers that have recently started to visit Hull. Just seen "Dutch Mate" sailing from the dock near me.

Anyhow, back on topic - some photos of ships...

Every forum member is less then 30 meters closer to a cruise ship
and i have to stand 100 meters as closest :doh: :thumbdown:

It's not possible to go that close to a cruise ship in every port, but the cruise terminal in Venice is built very ship spotter friendly. I also think in europe the security regulations are not as stict as in the US since 9/11.
On the ferry to greece I asked a crew member if its possible to visit the bridge and he got the key from the reception and brought me up to the captain.

Nice picture, Viking.  :thumbs:

I saw her last year in November when she came for her first visit to Holland where she came to Amsterdam.
She came again but then to Rotterdam, which is a much closer port, but I had to miss her because I had to work and my dad couldn't drive that day.  :(

The pictures of last year are on this page.  :)

Thank you.
Me neither. The ship designs and the faces.. Those are so ugly. :)
Most of the time not. You can easily sail along the ships. The most ships you will see there are the ships with all the waste onboard ;D

If you can gather atleast 2000 ( i don't know if its to much for you)
buy yourself a canon  :)

Can't wait, OceanDream!  :thumbs:

Also, I have been thinking to finally make the video of the Wereldhavendagen in Rotterdam, a few months back.
And I also have been thinking to post more pictures of my ship spotting in the beginning because of only 5 photo's in 1 post for every time I went, I figured it is just a too low amount of pictures...
So, stay tuned for updates from me and OceanDream!  :thumbs:

This is ship spotting 2009-2010(half of 2010 actually)
I am doing this because I figured that in the beginning there were just not enough pictures, because of only 5 pictures every time I went out...

So here they are, and take your time!  :thumbs:
Also, do keep in mind that these pictures were taken with my old camera, and not the Canon (except for the Black Prince).

Incredible collection. After watching those beauties I can't help but go sail the orient star!  :doh:
Each has its own special design highlight. I am really curious if it would ever make sense to design a broader, longer hull and partially hollow center so that the inner cabins can face each other as in the following picture:

http://www.google.gr/imgres?q=inner+building+garden&hl=el&client=firefox-a&hs=pPa&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:unofficial&biw=1009&bih=450&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnsb&tbnid=XjBjOdrdriZI8M:&imgrefurl=http://openbuildings.com/buildings/xintiandi-factory-hangzhou-profile-40742&docid=Ry6cPSfrH97iJM&imgurl=http://c1038.r38.cf3.rackcdn.com/group5/building40742/media/tokx_11_inner_garden_between_hotel_and_office.jpg&w=1280&h=852&ei=MdrLTvnuGcrE4gTNwI1g&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=511&vpy=132&dur=181&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=142&ty=94&sig=102020134320200567592&page=17&tbnh=101&tbnw=135&start=199&ndsp=13&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:199

 That may make the incredibly crowded croisière a little sizier, less crowded and more luxurious. Lets hope iron will soon get cheaper!
Again, fantastic collection!

"Pacific Dawn" would appear to be a sister ship (or very similar) to "Deo Volente" the Agile Solution was based on. She even sounded like the Agile Solution  :D

she is a ex ship from the Agile and there are 3 of them (Eendracht,Agile solution and the Pacific dawn) she is towed back to Holland because there is a leak at a pump and that pump had to carry that no water is comming into the engine the pump had to hold for 20 years but it was not longer than 2 years

Not very professional, i know. 

2006 on our journey Kiel - Göteborg with the Stena Scandinavica. At we leave Kiel the German Marine drill with 3 RHIB entering a ship at the stern, first Stena Scandinavica sail slow and they do the drill, after a few minutes the engines of the Scandinavica go full ahead and the drill continued. Was a great and long show and we havent the camera we need at this moment. It was dark outside. I wish i had a better camera at this moment.

in about 1,5 moonths the SCH-123 Zeeland will come back from 8 months of docking she will stay in Scheveningen for about 1 month to complete the rebuild of the ship, if the SCH-24 and SCH-118 really stay in Scheveningen for 3 months will this be the first time since December 2008 that these 3 ships will be docked at 1 harbor

Tomorrow, if the weather won't be that bad as expected in the morning, it will be the turn for the MS Grand Princess! This time only with her 'skywalker' removed from the stern, as shown on this picture.

No, that's my Sunseeker. I docked in Poole like he said just for some maintenance repairs (I was caught in a gun show run amok on the way over, it was covered with bullet holes, that's why those guys in the green vests are walking on it). Currently I'm en route to Pago Pago, then to San Francisco, then through the Panama Canal so I can make a visit at Barbados. :doh:

I'm lucky to live in Stavanger, a very busy cruise port. Yesterday we had four big ones: Azura, Costa Luminosa, Grand Mistral and Rotterdam with a total of 10,000 tourists :o

A few days ago Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria was docked next to each other. I guess they don't meet often outside Southampton. The arrival of cruise ships exploded after Stavanger was awarded second best cruise destination in the world.

The cruise docking area is covered by a live webcam, and below on that page a list of all arrivals this season. Much appreciated by us spotters :)

You're welcome. I love this live camera because it's very close to all the action. Only problem if you want to watch the cruise ships dock, you'll have to be up at 8am ;D

Grand Princess, to the left, is she a sister ship of the Azura? They look identical.

I was in town today trying to take some pictures of the five cruise ships moored, but there are so many people around because of the tourists and a food festival going on I had to withdraw :doh:

Both are made from the Grand Class line of ships. The only thing that differs is that they belong to a different company.  ;)

I see, my guess it couldn't be a P&O ship since theres no yellow funnel. But the Adonia is here, a smaller one. Must be P&O's baby ;D

Hm, it seems a new Norwegian Cruise Line monster will visit Rotterdam next year...  :P

ROLL-CALL: NORWEGIAN BREAKAWAY, April 28, 2013 - 1-Nighter from Rotterdam to So'ton

(http://thecruisepeople.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/norwegian-breakaway1.jpg)

Currently being build in the Meyer Werft in Germany. When one of these ships in the current webcams will be finished it will probably be switched to the Norwegian Breakaway.

Oh no, more cruise ships :doh:

Norwegian owners sold NCL to an Asian company many years ago. For some reason the new owners didn't change the company name or ship names. So, in case you didn't know, it has nothing to do with Norway anymore.

Only 50% ownership has been sold to that Asian company called Star Cruises.  ;)

This is only partially correct. Star Cruises acquired 100% of NCL, but later sold 50% to an American investment group called Apollo Management, based in Miami. There are still some Norwegian captains and other officers working for NCL, but no ownership.

Wilhelmsen Shipping owns 25% of RCCL, that's what is left when it comes to Norwegian cruise business.

the Snijkop (in english cutterhead) is used by dredgers to dredge in harder ground

it is mostly used by this type if dredgers (see picture below) called a cutter dredger, the cutterhead is rotating so it can cut in harder ground than a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger, the head has big steel pins on the end.

@michael_taal, I hope you can come, the Wereldhavendagen has a lot of things to do, offer and there's lots to see!  :)

@Rbsanford, that 'snijkop' is used for dredging, to loosen sturdy materials on the bottom and sucking them up meanwhile.

I spotted an interesting ship that we all would recognize. I did not take the picture attached, got it from google. I am in the US Coast Guard and work at VTS Houston/Galveston. I have seen all sorts of vessels including the real Jumbo Javelin (and a third Jumbo Shipping vessel, can't remember the name) A few weeks ago I spoke to the Fairmount Sherpa's sister ships, the Fairmount Alpine and Summit! I never can manage a picture though!

Well I did some research on Shipspottin.com and I was looking at some yachts with build year 2012 and in dutch waters and I saw a yacht with a name Oceanco Y703 also a very impressive yacht but i suddenly remembered that in the yacht her AIS name was Oceanco so I searched Oceanco and I found this!

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1604964
she is build at Oceanco in Alblasserdam and she is called Oceanco Y708 and isnt it a beauty  :2thumbs:

http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1676186
here seen leaving Scheveningen at her sea trials and the name is probably a secret because a big thing is hanging over it so you cant see it, here home port will be George Town.
http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1675909
with an impressive length of 85.5M will she have some more pics soon on ship spotters forums.

some history from Scheveningen has arrived yesterday evening
this is the Green Klipper (ex- Orange Klipper from Jaczon, yes they do more than fishing they have 2 or 3 from the biggest reefers)

(http://i1205.photobucket.com/albums/bb426/michael-taal/31444.jpg)
yes she has an logo from Seatrade on the funnel but that is because Jaczon owns a piece of Seatrade,  well better said Cornelis Vrolijk owns Seatrade for a piece (because Cornelis Vrolijk owns Jaczon and Jaczon owns a piece from Seatrade)

did a big trip last monday on my bicycle, I cycled from Scheveningen to Hook of Holland (20,3KM) and then from Hook of holland to Maassluis (I stopped somewhere in the middle between Maassluis and Vlaardingen) I cycled a total off 65KM :doh: 
I enjoyed the trip very much only the wet weather was annoying

hmm Sea Cadets such a simple word that I couldnt remind that from my own :doh:
And so they are all those old tugs just in front of your house, but if I didnt saw the Hudson I would never took these photos because I was already underway to Vlaardingen but I missed also 1 thing and that is the Arie Visser she was in the dock where the Voyager and RWS 78 were docked, if I cycled more to the dock I probably could photograph here too.
but next time better next vacation (end March) I will try to cycle the same route but now to Vlaardingen and then hoping there would be much more traffic.

Thanks. It also occurred to me that even the lifeboats have a bulbous bow these days.
Title: Re: Ship Spotters Topic
Post by: saltydog on April 28, 2013, 12:19:16
Actually, I meant they seem to have a different design-mechanism of the davits. Perhaps to allow the lifeboats to be lowered when the ship is listing more than 15 degrees (i.e. Costa Concordia)

Ah yes, they were rather sticking further out than usual compared to other cruise ships I've seen.

SOme great pictures,

the ships looks smaller than i expected, i have been on the exact same spot you have taken those pictures before, and the ships i saw back then (2004-QM2,Eurodam,Golden Princess) all looked much much bigger!

Maybe it looks like this because of it being on a camera, i bet in real life NB is huge!

A shame it was a bit windy and a bit on the cold side, but anyway. It began to be nice and crowded in the port of Calais.  :)
The pictures were taken with my phone.

Lovely place, just wished that tourists would stay so the Caffie my friend owns is busy more instead of the few hours during the ferry in port of people wanting ice cream, drink, food and so on. We're for what ever reason not I'n national park though (no idea why)

Well that problem have I also when I see a nice vessel.

The Cutter is for operations what a Hopper can't do, a hopper can only dredge: Sand,Gravel and soft clay (Hard clay is to hard to dredge), so if the hopper can't do it they will send a cutter to dredge because with the big teeth they can dredge: Rock, hard clay and other harder stuff that a dredger can't dredge.

if you want to know more ask it.

I will be honest, I'm not a ship spotter, but I spent the past two days in Southampton, and as we like cruise ships, we went to Hythe to watch Celebrity Eclipse and Adonia leave from Hythe pier, but there was rather more than that! It started with this lot:

(due to only being allowed 5 pictures per post, I am posting in sections)  ::)

I was down there because of my Dad buying a powerboat experience with Saber Powersports, and it was awesome, I even got to drive. Crossing the wake of the Red Jets and the Red Funnel ferries is just amazing!

Shieldhall (vessel the last picture down on the above post), which I presume is a steamship, whistled at Celebrity Eclipse, and Eclipse whistled or 'hooted' back. I have a video somewhere. ;D

Shieldhall is an old Thames sludge barge (a pooh tanker, that used to carry London's sewage out to sea and dump it)  She has been restored and now sails as a museum type vessel carrying passengers in a similar way to Waverly and Balmoral.

2 october we went to sail with Kotug and the 3rd of october we went to sail with the training vessel from school , 2 October we were sailing with the ZP Chalone (3060HP) andSD Rebel (5000HP) . from these ships I have made some pictures from the Delfshaven (our training vessel),Endurance,Smit Panther, Hafnia-/Flandria Seaways and some other ships mostly in drydock.

First we went with the ZP Chalone, she had to make a test trial because she did not sailed for over a year due to reperations.

You aren´t planning on going to Rotterdam sometime over the next 2 days, are you? As the Norwegian Getaway is in port right now at Keppel Verolme. I didn´t have the chance to see her because I had a lack of available time.  :(

Oh well, she will come back in 1,5 months after she leaves this Saturday.  :)

today was the day to celebrate 200 years kingdom Netherlands

I was waiting on the beach, when suddenly I got called so I took up and a friend of my asked me if I was going with him on his RIB to take some pictures (I didn't have to think twice for that :D) so I sayed ofcourse yes, that is the reason why today the pictures are from the other side.

hope you like them:
sorry that some pictures are not very good but the sea was a bit tough today (waves between 2 and 4Meters)

thankyou, it was meant to be sarcastic, I can´t remember that it was so busy in the harbor (even with Christmas last year is was not so busy, and that is just the period that all the trawlers go home).

Some pictures from an hour ago, hope you like them.

Hi all, a few images from me, taken last weekend (May 17th & 18th) in Southampton. We went down this weekend for a few things, but I managed to persuade the parents that this weekend was an especially good weekend to go as on the Saturday there would be six cruise ships in.

We arrived at Calshot around 14:30 to see the first two cruise ships leave, here's what greeted us by blasting away from the pier.
(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5495/14240926293_f5e870fcf6.jpg) (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124696915@N03/14240926293/)

Then, after checking up on the Southampton VTS planned movements, the ships that were supposed to leave at 14:30 were changed to 16:30 and 18:30! So we went for a walk along the spit and I took my camera and snapped these along the way:
(https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2937/14220744145_5d649e2209.jpg) (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124696915@N03/14220744145/)

Causeway, a Suction Hopper dredger, was working just off the end of the spit for most of the day, on the exit of Southampton water, and left when the cruise ships began making their way down the channel.
(https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2895/14034133330_e1793ea300.jpg) (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124696915@N03/14034133330/)

After going to do the other stuff we planned, we returned at 16:30 to see off the cruise ships. First through was P&O's Oceana, one of two P&O ships that day. You could actually hear the sailaway party on board, which was funny. :D

Before the next cruise ship came through, another dredger, Shoreway, that had been working all day up by Fawley, departed:
(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5523/14035386097_301efd6bc9.jpg) (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124696915@N03/14035386097/)

Next, Independence of the Seas came through:

Then, I managed to be in the right place at the right time to get this one:

Next up, Black watch, one of two Fred Olsen ships in:

Then, there was an hours wait until the next cruise ships left their berths, these images were taken then:

Red Eagle, a ship simmer's favourite:

Not sure what this is - the guy we were sat with (who's VHS we were listening to) said that is was like a Norfolk sail vessel?

Then, my personal star of the show arrived! Aurora is my favourite cruise ship, she's just - perfect! :thumbs:
(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5274/14218730381_dc7dfa28da.jpg) (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124696915@N03/14218730381/)

Side view, with the Harbour Master. the Harbour Master had just dropped a motorboat off at the pier, his engine failed mid-channel as Aurora approached!

One of my best ship images ever:

And just as the parents forced me back into the car to leave, I could just snap Balmoral as she approached: ;)

Unfortunatley, MSC Opera, the sixth vessel, was only just leaving her berth, and we had to get the the camp site so I wasn't able to see her, but oh well :)

Hope ya like them! ;D

Yes danny i did see Aurora and Silver Explorer were here on sunday no photos though. We have around one hundred cruise ships visits this year in Guernsey record year for us. But that all depends on the weather as we have no cruise ship berth its all tenders ashore.

on saturday the 14th of June it was "Vlaggetjesdag" again, every year we celebrate that the new herring (Hollandse nieuwe in dutch) is arrived.
This year I was invited the one of the fishing trawlers from Jaczon, I sure wanted to go on so I did, the  vessel I sailed with is the OD-1 Maarten Jacob.

Yesterday Scheveningen was shocked by the very big fire onboard the SCH-118 Johanna Maria (2 people were injured).

The fire started at round 9 in the morning and 12 hours later (9 in the afternoon) the sign fire master was given (although the ships cought fire again 20 minutes later and this afternoon she cought fire again, these 2 fires were quickly extinguished).

around 6 in the midday the Ievoli Amaranth (Coastguard tug) arrived at the coast of Scheveningen to tow the Johanna Maria out of the harbor if the fire was not extinguished by 9 in the afternoon, this desision would be made due to the trouble (smoke) and smell (burning plastic) but at 9 the fire was under control and the trawler stayed in the harbor.

The RPA 15 sailed from Rotterdam to Scheveningen for helping. (with a FiFi capacity of 65.000 Litres/minute she was perfect helping hand).

The RPA15 had to stop fire fighting for a moment because the fire department was cutting holes in the vessel to let the water escape.

It was intresting how they are fighing against the fire, luckily we dont have this fires much (althought it is the 3rd very big fire in Scheveningen in 1 month), sadly it is the 3rd big trawler fire in 10 years (all had Scheveningen as homeport), it is the 2nd vessel for this company that is on fire while they were renovating her.
Scheveningen has had a lot of luck there was still 600 tonnes of oil in the vessel.

Later today more pictures but now from very close (the smell around the vessel is still horrible).

I've been doing quite a bit of photography recently downtown, and yesterday and a couple weeks ago I caught some out-of-the-ordinary moored vessels.

(https://i.imgur.com/8ABznW6.jpg)
The Lake Guardian, moored outside the DECC (Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center).

(https://i.imgur.com/67QZk9i.jpg)
A closer shot of Lake Guardian.

(https://i.imgur.com/FDt6Qs3.jpg)
As you can see, she is owned by the EPA.

(https://i.imgur.com/dSzhgLe.jpg)
The aft deck.

(https://i.imgur.com/7RLsnf7.jpg)
Port of registry is Bay City, MI.

(https://i.imgur.com/Uoov5Zn.jpg)
Yesterday things were shaken up a bit. Here the M/Y Three Sons is moored in the abandoned Portlend Cement terminal along with the decommissioned USCG buoy tender Sundew. I took this from the top floor of the 14-story Medical Arts Building.

(https://i.imgur.com/zMjdbMp.jpg)
As close as I dared get to Three Sons. Technically I was a "criminal trespasser", according to a sign by the remains of a guard post.

(https://i.imgur.com/8HQ9ouP.jpg)
A somewhat safer shot of Three Sons and Sundew. The cement elevator will be repainted and refurbished, and the surrounding area will be razed to make way for a three-story hotel and a plaza. This slip will be the new home of the William A. Irvin museum ship, and the other will be a marina designed for large luxury craft, such as Three Sons.

Looks like a Forrest Sherman class DD. Without the hull number it could be any of them. The design was late 1940s and the builds were in the 50s. Some of the hulls were used for the first DLGs.

Something you don´t see everyday a 14 metre long whale (dead) that the KNRM was trying to beach, the whale was found in the noon by a fisherman, because the whale was floating in the middle of a fairway she had to be moved, after some hours behind the SAR vessel De Redder the plan was made to beach the whale North of Scheveningen

Interesting to see how they deal with a whale - do they normally beach it?

I think it depends where she is located, like now she was in the Northsea one of the busiest fairways in the world, so I think this was the only option.

What is happing to the ship? is she getting scrapped?

That is still unknown, tha last 2 months they investigated the upperstructure (and demolished it)
monday the 1st of September she was towed to Vlissingen (drydock) for further inspections below the waterline and hull, it can take weeks or months before this investigation is done.

Untill then there can be said anything about the ship, hopefully she can be saved, because Scheveningen has not many trawlers left in their fleet.

Afraid not the Ferry Terminal was to far away to get a decent picture of it. We were coached from the terminal to the ship at both ports. The ship was DFDS Cote Dalbatre , i took this one of her in 2010 in Portsmouth.

Really can’t figure out what that is, but it’s certainly not a generator.

It may be a condenser for a steam turbine, but that is a total guess.

A nice full harbor and one of the biggest reefers that have docked in Scheveningen in history, normally they are around the 100 and 115m this one is 135m and I must say that this is also one of the nicest so far.
She is built in 1990 for Seatrade (Dutch company specialised in reefers) and she was named Music (there were more reefers that ended with IC like the Mystic,Magnific,Maveric,Magic) a few years ago she was sold to Green Reefers and renamed Green Music.

Now I have walked next to her, I really experienced how big she really is, 2 weeks ago she was also big but there were almost 100M between me and the vessel now only 20M, I felt really small today

thankyou, I fly it myself (it is very easy to learn) and it depends if you are a hobby flyer or for commercial use, if you are flying for the hobby (like me) then you can fly whenever you want (but not everywhere, you are not allowed to fly above harbors or houses and a lot more rules) and if you are flying for commercial use then you have to need a license and everytime you need to fly, you have to say it to the city.

Yeah I saw that. By the looks of it the Netherlands waited until it was in its waters, inspected it, found it wasn't up to scratch and fined them - good on you!

Good, more Port State Authorities need to be checking more cruise ships more strictly for crew working hours and handing out more and bigger fines to the cruise companies, maybe then they will get the message that seafarers are not just there to be abused.

I was praying that she would arrive wednesday (because that is my free day of school), but sadly it did not happen, so the only thing way I could see her was on the webcam.
but I am now asking my dad to go for a little drive to the Maasvlakte 2, I definitly want to see her once.

By the way here is a link to my youtube channel: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC2b2Ub7cH35SwMVTkz1kY9g

Had these sitting in a folder for a few months now...

If I would look back on the total of ships I had spotted until now, I can say for sure... The Oasis is HUGE! I even had trouble finding spots to get some decent pictures of (mostly) the whole thing. I never thought this ship would even come close to any of of our Dutch ports because of its sheer size....

But enough chit-chat, here are the pictures. After waiting patiently for 5 years now!  :)

I am pretty sure that if the scheepsvaartinspectie were to see that 3rd photo then the captain would be in big trouble.

Like most Dutch / Belgian dredgers, she is ridiculously overloaded.

I agree with that, but in The Netherlands, Belgium and some other countries it is legal to load the dredger so deep, dredgers have a so called "baggermerk" (dredging mark).
It is the same mark as a Plimsoll but with the dredging mark you can load much more.

The reason dredgers are allowed to load so deep is that they can dump their load in just a few seconds.

And they must be within 20M of the coast or 24hours away of a safe harbor

a so called dredge mark.

I must be mad though - I heard from my mum she had grounded at about 1am, and booked coach tickets by 1:30 for Southampton  :doh:

MAN B&W engines are great mechanically, but the electronic control systems are just a world of pain.

Thankyou,

After a lot of commotion about the Pieter Schelte her name Allseas decided to rename her to Pioneering Spirit (personally I liked the former name more, except from the history behind the name)

A small story behind the name that caused the commotion, she was named after Pieter Schelte Heerema, a former Waffen-SS officer who lived from 1908 till 1981

Today the former PH-110 Wiron 1 arrived after been layed up for almost 10 months in Stellendam waiting for a buyer.

Now she is back as the H-180 Altlantic Lady (homeport Hull), she will go for some trials and then maybe she will be sold.

The Barend Biesheuvel (coastguard) and the Atlantic lady.

tomorrow more pictures, tonight the FC-716999 Sandettie will arrive + the H-171 Cornelis Vrolijk Fzn will also arrive (hopefully not in the evening, this will be the first time ever that a ship from Cornelis Vrolijk will arrive at Scheveningen (an 80% of their fleet has as homeport Scheveningen)

2 hours ago I got a message for a person in the water at the north breakwaters, when I arrived at the scene it came clear that it was a surfer who was tired due to the stream.

Here i am again, the H-171 Cornelis Vrolijk Fzn left the harbor this afternoon heading for the fishing grounds, it was not the best weather but maybe it is the only time this vessel will dock in Scheveningen.
