1  Shipspotters all over the world / Trip reports / Re: Amsterdam-Hook of Holland on: February 14, 2019, 09:52:15 am
Some information about Hoek van Holland: the sun is most of the day straight in your face and therefore it is difficult to make good pictures.
At Hoek van Holland you see all the vessels to Rotterdam area but not to Europoort. For the vessels bound for Europoort you need the walk to the end of the long mole. That is sometimes not possible with high tide and strong winds.
For vessels only to/from Rotterdam-area better stay at Maassluis and take the ferry to Rozenburg, just about one Euro for a pedestrian. On the other side the sun is at your back: better pictures.

Anyone have any idea why MarineTraffic does not allow any longer to open pictures in full screen? It is not functioning for a week now.

Instead of this general statement, can you mention some examples? The members, admins and editors put a lot of effort in the correct categories, with the IMO as guide line and the IMO guides us back to the official databases like Fairplay, Lloyds, Veritas, etc.

About Norton: still warns me that it is a dangerous site but I resume working on the site daily without any other problems. Sometimes an exe with .ru - extension tries to start but Norton removes it straight away. After that Norton still reports no problems on my PC.

Many members still report problems with the site. But why do we not hear any status report about solving the problems from the technical team?

Why has the site owner not intervened by now with technical support and / or money to solve the problems?

I am using Norton that gives me the "not safe"-warning, but I can access the site after the warning without any further problems. Does that mean that Norton has flagged the website internally for ever as "not safe"?

Questions, questions, questions, now the answers please?

I had this morning from SS the error message that Java Plug-in 8.-something was missing. Did an update on Java and problem disappeared right away.

As far as I know there is a message sent in case a photo is removed / deleted.
Being a photo-correction-editor myself: sending also a message in case of editing a photo is a lot of extra work. There are days that I correct 50+ names, IMO, categories, etc. !
A lot of "mistakes" can be corrected by the members by them self by using the button "this ship" after posting, errors in names or IMO or category are seen that way within seconds.
8  Shipspotters all over the world / Trip reports / Re: Just booked a cargo cruise with CMA CGM. Advice for a great trip? on: February 25, 2018, 09:23:50 am
I did make one trip for a week in the Baltic with a ro-ro-vessel. Compared to cruising I did find the facilities (the cabin) very basic but that was fine with me: it was a working vessel. But:
Deck space very limited: only a short walk possible on an accommodation deck. Do take care that you are not locked out outside by accident while you are making outside a picture of a passing vessel. It happened to me and it was one hour later before the next crewmember did see me outside in the freezing cold.
Take some movies on digital devices with you: the crew is very grateful for seeing something new. Television-channels on board very limited or total non-European rubbish.
Also big ships have small crews that are either working or sleeping. Days at sea can be lonely: take books or other entertainment with you and maybe leave them on board for the crew.
Know in advance what you are allowed to bring on board on cigarettes and alcohol. And additional insurance is maybe required, because medical evacuation is sometimes not included in the normal medical / travel insurances.
And CMA CGM is a French company: do you know some of the language, English may not be spoken by every crew member.
Just some remarks.

Would like to add about public transport: there is a tramway all along the Belgian coast from French border up to nearly Netherlands border. At Zeebrugge is follows the road N34, in the city itself along N34a. Name is "kusttram". Dayticket 8 Euro, see:

I have been to Zeebrugge several times and it was fun in the periode that there were no fences everywhere. Because like in every port in the world it is now all fenced up. It is possible to go by car to the P&O ferry terminal but all you see is the ferry behind a fence. Behind the locks there is a large industrial area with quays but again all closed for sightseeing and long distances to drive, forget to walk it. Zeebrugge is mainly a ro/ro-port: a few ro/ros in the outer harbor and maybe a few cargovessels or vehiclescarriers behind the locks. Maybe a gastanker at the plant in the outer harbor. Between the ferry terminal and the locks is a short promenade with a view to a containerterminal and a few tugs. You need a car, forget public transport. Take a look first on the internet with Google Maps or Streetview, walk virtually in the streets and area. Then you see the distances and the possibilities.

Because I am under constant attack with this Coin-thing and Odessa.htm-warnings, I will stop using this website, posting pictures and end my work as photo-editor for some time.
I hope that I can return to the website after the admin/webmaster/ICT-master or who ever can send me a solution for this plague, suitable for a digital nitwit like me.

12  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: cruise terminal at Hull ? on: February 17, 2017, 07:28:18 pm
Thank you so far the info but I am not going to Hull for taking photo's but to board the cruise ship MARCO POLO of CMV (because she will leave the CMV fleet in May 2017 and I want to travel at least once in this "oldie"). So far I know that there are two P&O terminals, one for Rotterdam (on the river) and one for Zeebrugge (in the dock). I will arrive by foot (no car) at the Rotterdam terminal. I think the cruise ships will be somewhere inside the dock and not on the river. What quay I would very much like to know and how I can walk there.
13  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / cruise terminal at Hull ? on: February 17, 2017, 09:26:09 am
Has anyone knowledge about cruise ships leaving from Hull? Does Hull have a cruise terminal or do companies use the P&O ferry building for the check-in? Where are the cruise ships, such as MARCO POLO of CMV moored: on the river or in a dock and which one? Any info most welcome as I arrive at Hull by the P&O ferry by foot and can not find detailed information about the whereabouts of a cruise terminal or the quay used by the cruise ships.

Mike, thank you for the fast reply. I totally forgot that one!
15  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Cruise ship STARSHIP ROYALE sunk or scrapped on: January 29, 2017, 12:25:37 pm
The cruise ship STARSHIP ROYALE of Premier Cruises (former FEDERICO C of Costa) is said to be sunk in Panama waters during bad weather and all crew savely taken off. However found enclosed picture on the internet with the caption "cruise ship scrapped at Alang". For me she looks very much like the STARSHIP ROYALE. What is the name of the ship in the picture?
