Oriana update

Update: Oriana actually left at 7pm so it looks as if all is well. As I write this (7:55 pm) she’s in the Solent between Cowes and Ryde and heading towards the Nab Tower.

According to the Port of Southampton’s Cruise Ship Schedule page, Oriana actually berthed at the QE2 terminal (berths 38/9) at just after midnight today (6 January). She’s due to depart on her next cruise – X901, 35 nights to the Caribbean and Central America – at 8 o’clock this evening, and I’m not sure if that’s delayed from the originally-planned time or not. I do note that the other cruise ships in port today, Queen Victoria and Arcadia, are departing at 4:30pm and 6pm respectively. Arcadia will be departing on her 2019 world cruise, while Queen Victoria will be off on a short break to Hamburg.

I’ll monitor the departures during the later afternoon and evening and update if required.

(Note that the Cruise Ship Schedule page is close-to real-time – i.e., it doesn’t show departures on previous days….)
