Saga Pearl II blog - Captains' blogs

30th October, 2018

Here we are back again to our ‘winter time’ homeport of Portsmouth. A nice arrival this morning but a little chilly, so hopefully next cruise will be nice and warm. Today we start our Flavours of the Canaries cruise, calling at Funchal then La Palma, La Gomera, Fuerteventura, Leixoes and back home to Portsmouth. Lots of fuel to bunker today and stores to load. My senior team this cruise is Staff Captain Simon (Welcome back!!), Chief Engineer Mark, Hotel Director Dawn and Cruise Director Jemma.

Well with a full house onboard it is time to do our Passenger Emergency drill and depart Portsmouth with 3 seadays down to Madeira. I have my Mum with me for her first cruise and I am sure she will enjoy it!

See you in Madeira!
