I also use all capital letters when I'm using the ship's name, it's more uniformed and more appropriate. Judging by the the other posts I'm certainly not alone.

Shipspotting.com is primarily an English speaking website. I'm not sure what your trying to put across but regardless of translation I think that you would get far more response if your post was in English.

Although I don't have a link at hand it has since been confirmed that the passenger in question was just suffering from flu like symptoms and was eventually taken off the vessel to a local hospital for a full check up.

The Costa Smeralda has since continued her cruise ommiting her scheduled call at La Spezia due her late departure.

On the 05 December 2018 the FUNCHAL was sold at auction for €3.1 million to the UK based hotel group Signature Living although by all accounts no payment was actually made.

Although Signature Living proposed to use the former FUNCHAL as a party boat based in Ibiza they later changed their plans to refurbish her as a Hotel Ship and have her berthed in a UK port.

Obviously these plans have never materialised and the FUNCHAL remains laid up in Lisbon.


I wonder what the future holds for the FUNCHAL?


I can't honestly see her returning to commercial service as a cruise ship but I do hope that she doesn't end up on the beaches of Aliaga in Turkey or Alang in India.

That video is a few years old and has been on YouTube for a few years.

Boat seems rather a strange term for a vessel the size of the Harmony of the Seas!

What is the reference to United Kingdom to this story?

Viking Ocean Cruises are Norwegian owned, Norwegian flagged and all five vessels of the fleet will have been built by Fincantieri in Italy.

No UK connection.

Derek

You state that you have never been out of Europe!

I find that very strange for someone of your age, I am 11 years younger than you and I have been to 92 countries worldwide and my first visit 'outside of Europe' to New York, USA was at 18yo.

There is World out there Derek why stick to 'just' Europe, no one in my family including cousins n nephews, etc who are over 20 years younger than myself have 'just been to Europe'!

Sorry I just had to comment as I found it strange.

The photo is greatly enlarged, you'll need to scroll over to the right to see the line he means off the stern.

Greatly enlarged that's an understatement but thanks for pointing it out as I would never have known otherwise.

Looks more like the bow to me rather than the 'stern'!

Admin can we please delete this post seeing it is not a recent  news article.

For personal reasons really considering my close family connection with the QE2.

That was a very interesting article by BBC and very accurate until they wrote Queen Elizabeth II rather than Queen Elizabeth 2, otherwise it was a well written article.

A very good move on ABP Southampton's part especially if they are fortunate in their bid to own/operate Marchwood Military Port which is adjacent to the land recently acquired, with a large area of land with direct river access there surely will be some future port development in this area to cater for the ever growing port activity and with Dibden Bay directly next door as well which is currently owned by ABP Southampton.

Of course there will be objections as in the case of the long public enquiry that went against any plans  to develop Dibden Bay into a huge container port but eventually it will happen.
