Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

3rd April, 2018

It is time again to start a new cruise. What a fabulous cruise we have just completed. Easter celebrations combined with a Captain’s Fish and Chips event – perfect way to finish off the cruise. So here we are in a nice Portsmouth today ready to start our Maritime Mini Cruise. My senior team this cruise are Staff Captain Simon, Hotel Director Dawn, Chief Engineer Ciro and Cruise Director Simon.

A busy turnaround this Portsmouth with loading stores, refuelling and preparations for our newly embarking guests. With embarkation complete and it is time to do our Passenger Emergency Drill.

We have been monitoring the weather for some time and whilst the weather conditions were not looking favourable for Guernsey, we have a very good alternative of going to Honfleur instead for an overnight. By 8pm we departed our berth and heading south towards Honfleur tomorrow.
