The Star Princess is coming this week on Saturday but there is a change that I will not go to Rotterdam.

Why?: Well, if people already know about the bad weather in mid- and south France, a bit of that bad weather is coming this way so that means probably: RAIN! >:(

But I only say there is a chance that I will not go.

Looks like on 9th May, 2010, our barque Kruzenshtern is coming back home after her 3rd round the world voyage.  If luck, maybe will take some shots.  :thumbs:

That happened indeed!  :2thumbs:

Hope has came again!  :2thumbs:

The weather now isn't that bad as it was expected. I'm going to leave in about a few minutes to see her dock at the Wilhemina Pier.

When I come back, I will show some pictures ASAP.  :)

Here you can see her: (she is expected to dock at 8:00 AM at GMT+01 Dutch time)

And that vessel was...

QUEEN MARY 2

Maybe because of the wind and/or tide. It also creates a traffic jam if she turns at the Cruise Terminal, i don't think the VTS is happy about that..  ;D

Only smaller ships turn around near the terminal. Bigger ships like QM2 turns around somewhere further
