Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

17th June, 2018

Well turnaround today in Dover and a busy day with lots of stores coming onboard and, of course, welcoming our new guests for their sunny Celebrations in the Mediterranean Cruise.

A busy day of meetings for the Captain and the officers and then suddenly it was time to do our Guest Emergency drill at 3:30pm. The last of the stores and fuel were loaded and it was time to leave Dover at just after 4pm.

My senior team this cruise is Chief Engineer Mark, Staff Captain Simon, Hotel Director Ivar (HD Dawn is joining us in Cadiz) and Cruise Director Kayleigh. Many activities planned for our guests on the next 3 seadays down to our first port of call, Cadiz on the 23rd June. Weather en-route is looking good so here we go – looking forward to the Med and the weather down there is looking great.

Full steam ahead!!.........
