Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

21st August, 2018

Here we are in Dover, a little foggy, but it is due to get sunnier later in the day. A very calm sea day back from Leith towards Dover in the North Sea and we all really enjoyed our last cruise around Britain.

Our cruise starting today is a mini-cruise titled Delightful France, where we visit Honfleur tomorrow and then for ‘one time only’ we will be going for an Overnight stay in Caen – really looking forward to that, including to see the D-day beaches and the famous Pegasus Bridge.

Refuel and storing time here in Dover and a crew changeover. Simon and Dawn have gone on leave so my senior team this cruise are Staff Captain Richard, Hotel Director Ivar, Chief Engineer Ciro and Cruise Director Kayleigh.

3:30pm and time for our Passenger Emergency Drill. 4pm and off we go ready for Honfleur tomorrow. See you soon…
