Not quite - that was last week

Lets See, I was on one, passed three en route, with two more berthed at Staten Island (I assume spare vessels, though one was one of their new ones).

The Lekhaven (Rotterdam) today

The Mtide Taurus in the safe harbour, one week ago her anchor didn't hold anymore due to the bad sea conditions, after she had drifted almost 3miles to shore the lifeboat assisted her and anchored her again at a safe distance.

Ahh, by the looks of those crains, they're working on some new buildings on Kop van Zuid. Where the hell can you decently park your car when the parking lots are now taken down one by one...  ???

I mean, that large building on the left (first picture with Zuiderdam) used to be a parking lot, LOL.

thankyou.

Today was finally the day that the mighty Harmony of the Seas made her maiden call and probably her only call to Rotterdam.
I knew that she would be huge (due to the Oasis last year at Rotterdam) but when you stand next to her you really see how huge she is :o :o

How would these very big cruise ships behave on a very stormy sea with gale force winds? And are they sufficiently stable, whether intact or damaged.

It would have to have a minimal GM (stability) before she would be classified and allowed a passenger certificate

Hi Salty,
I am not sure what the width of the river is at Holland America Kade, nor if the scaling is correct in SSE. But "Oceana" is said to be 397m long against "Harmony of the Seas" at 362m. So could it be that such a ship could turn as in my picture? Gently easing off the quay, using all her 4 fancy thrusters and 3 main azipod drives to come gently astern and then easing her stern into the entrance to the Rijnhaven astern of her. I feel sure also that a giant like that would have tugs in attendance too. If the depths are dredged OK it looks as if this could be done right there. However, like you, I would very much like to know if it is done here or elsewhere.

Angus

The big vessels will reverse from the Wilhelminkade to the Waalhaven where they will turn, sometimes (like the Koningsdam last week) they are turning at the Waalhaven at their arrival and then reverse to the wilhelminakade.

The Oasis of the Seas seen reversing in September 2014

Thanks for those pictures michael, it would seem many tugs were in action there..
 It seems a long way to reverse to safely turn.. :)

In the night of friday/saturday the UK-254 "Antje" sunk in the harbor, she was lifted again saturday afternoon.


In the afternoon the Andre-B arrived for the salvage, I must say that the Andre-B is a very nice looking tug



at around 12 o'clock the "Antje" was floating again.

picture taken today

today after years of waiting and hoping if this vessel ever come to her homeport, she finally made her maiden-call to Scheveningen, the Willem van der Zwan, 2nd largest trawler in the world.

some specifications:
build: 2000
length: 142,5m
width: 18,7 m
capacity: between 250.000 and 300.000 boxes of fish (25 kilograms each)

demolished in 2007 by a huge fire and rebuild in 2008/2009 from the tanktops to the masts.





but now some pictures of today.











The Zeeland looks like a dinky toy with the Willem van der Zwan in front of her
