  1. Looks like she's under her own power at least - all be it doing 8 knots, perhaps on one engine only?
  2. The Faroese have been generally been great with Covid-19 testing. I believe something like 175% of their population have been tested
  3. Thanks for all the wonderful stories and pictures. And some incredible videos of her now hhvferry - looking quite battered, but perhaps she was always a bit like that and nostalgia is getting the better of me. But amazing to think she's still running nearly 50 years on. I know she in the grand scheme of things wasn't particularly exciting - but every ship enthusiast has that one ship, probably the one that made them a ship enthusiast, and for me it's this one (all be it when she was St Clair!)

  4. Thanks for this Chris. Have you ever considered reconnecting with your ex wife?! (if only to find those photos!!) 😂

  6. For all intents she is exactly the same vessel as the 7 year old Oasis of The Seas. It's a very clever move by Royal Caribbean - they make each one of them marginally longer (I'm talking a couple of feet tops) then as a result they can bring out the whole 'we've built the largest cruise ship in the world' media hype every time they make a new one. They did the same with Allure a couple of years after Oasis, and they are doing the same with Harmony now. They will no doubt do the same with Oasis 4 which is currently under construction. Oasis is 1,186.5 ft long Harmony is 1,188.1 ft.
