Allure of the Seas Forced to Change Itinerary Due to Propulsion Issue
Allure of the Seas which is one of the largest cruise ships in the world has been forced to alter its Eastern Caribbean itinerary due to propulsion issues. Allure of the Seas which is an oasis-class vessel for Royal Caribbean is suffering from a propulsion issue and the itinerary has been altered. A letter was sent out to guests booked on upcoming sailings and a reader of the well known Royal Caribbean Blog site sent in a letter which stated the following: “Allure of the Seas currently has a speed restriction which will result in slight adjustments to your itinerary. For your convenience, the updates are noted below. The new port of San Juan, Purto Rico offers the opportunity to visit the culturally rich city of Old Suan Juan and the lush rain forest El Yunque. We apologize for this change, but have no doubt that your vacation will be nothing short of amazing. We can’t wait to welcome you onboard.” It is not known how many itineraries are being changed and when the propulsion issue will be fixed. With the letter going out to people booked on upcoming sailings then most likely it could take some time. If you are booked for Allure of the Seas on Eastern Caribbean sailing would be best to keep in touch with the cruise line regarding the ports so you can plan and be prepared for your cruise vacation. https://www.cruisehive.co...

Allure of the Seas to Undergo Dry Dock to Fix Reduced Speed Issues
Allure of the Seas will undergo a week-long dry dock so that the current propulsion issues can be fixed. Yesterday we posted about Allure of the Seas altering some itineraries due to propulsion issues and sailing at reduced speed. Well, now Royal Caribbean has confirmed that the Oasis-class vessel will undergo an important dry dock to fix the problem. Royal Caribbean has confirmed with Cruise Hive that the ship will begin its dry dock operation on January 21 and will end on January 28, 2018. For seven days the reduced sailing speed problem will be fixed and we’re pretty sure they will use the time to do a few other things around the ship too but nothing major. The cruise line recently sent out letters to those people booked on upcoming sailings. Apparently, St Kitts and St Thomas are among the ports to be replaced with San Juan being added on some itineraries. At the moment Allure of the Seas which is one of the biggest cruise ships in the world is sailing a 7-night western Caribbean cruise. The huge vessel is based out of POrt Everglades, Florida and is 225,282 gross tons https://www.cruisehive.co...

Moorings Connected to Prelude FLNG
The mooring chains for Shell’s giant Prelude FLNG have all been connected, marking the completion of the first phase of her installation and commissioning. Prelude was built at the Samsung Heavy Industries yard in Geoje, South Korea, and was partially commissioned prior to her departure. She is the largest floating offshore facility ever built and is among the world's largest vessels by displacement. Three tugs towed Prelude to her permanent location off the northwest coast of Australia, where she will process, liquefy, store and offload natural gas for export. At full capacity she will produce about 3.5 million tonnes per annum of LNG. Commissioning is expected to take nine months to a year, and will involve up to a dozen support vessels at a time, including offshore tugs, PSVs and subsea construction ships. Shell says that a team of 800 people are involved in this phase of the project, much more than the 120-140 crewmembers that Prelude will require for normal operations. The firm has contracted a 650-bed semisubmersible floatel, the POSH Arcadia, to provide the berthing for the extra staff. Prelude will be the second FLNG to enter operation after Petronas' PFLNG Satu. In addition to her record-setting size, she is among the most expensive vessels ever built, and her plant is much more capital-intensive per tonne of capacity than the latest onshore liquefaction trains.

TOTE Expands Into Hawaii Trade
TOTE Maritime increased its investment in the U.S. Jones Act trade on Friday, announcing an order for four new containerships from Philly Shipyard. The ships will be used to compete with Matson and Pasha in the Hawaii trade. "Philly Shipyard . . . fully supports the efforts to introduce new vessels into the Hawai'i containership trade to replace aged ships in time to meet new environmental regulations," said Steinar Nerbovik, Philly’s president & CEO, in a statement Friday. In addition to the newbuild order, TOTE has begun talks to secure container terminal space in Honolulu. The firm said that timing is critical to get the service running in early 2020, when new environmental regulations will take effect. TOTE has operated vessels from the U.S. mainland to Alaska and Puerto Rico for four decades, but this would be its first venture to Hawaii. It has invested significantly in newbuilding in recent years, spending hundreds of millions for two LNG-fueled container carriers to serve Puerto Rico. The vessels replaced the lost ro/con El Faro and her sister ship El Yunque. maritime-executiv...

Cruise ship murder suspect indicted
A man suspected of killing his wife aboard a cruise ship near Juneau has been indicted on a charge of first-degree murder. A federal indictment was filed in the U.S. District Court in Juneau against Kenneth Manzanares for the murder of his wife Kristy on board the cruise ship Emerald Princess on July 25, U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Chloe Martin said Thursday. The next hearing in this case will be the arraignment, which has not been scheduled yet, Martin said in a release. The 39-year-old Utah man killed his wife aboard the ship and told an acquaintance who later walked into the couple’s blood-splattered room that he did it because she laughed at him, the FBI said in charging documents. juneauempire.com/...

USS Fitzgerald Leaders Punished, Crew Is Praised After Collision With Cargo Ship
The U.S. Navy has relieved the USS Fitzgerald's commander and two other senior leaders of their duties — and it's also praising the crew for saving their ship after the destroyer collided with a large Philippine-flagged container ship off the coast of Japan on June 17. "It was also evident from this review that the entire Fitzgerald crew demonstrated real toughness that night," the Navy said. "Following the collision these Sailors responded with urgency, determination and creativity to save their ship." Inadequate leadership and flawed teamwork contributed to the crash, the Navy said after releasing the findings of its investigation into the crash. It also blamed poor seamanship by the crews of both the guided-missile cruiser and the ACX Crystal, whose gross tonnage was triple that of the U.S. ship. Seven members of the Fitzgerald's crew died in the collision, which bashed in a large section of the ship above the waterline and caused extensive damage below. Water poured in through a large gash near its keel — a 13-by-17-foot opening that was made by the cargo ship's bulbous bow — as sailors responded to an emergency around 1:30 a.m. "Through their swift and in many cases heroic actions, members of the crew saved lives," the Navy said. The report found that the sailors responded to flooding, structural damage and reports of a fire as they worked to restore the ship's power, propulsion and guidance. The damage spanned two decks, and water poured into the ship — particularly into Berthing 2, which held 42 beds and a lounge for the crew. By the time one sailor jumped from his top bunk, the water was chest high, the Navy says. www.npr.org/secti...

Carnival Cruise ship returns to terminal after medical emergency
August 19th 2017: A Carnival Cruise ship has returned to the Port of Mobile after a medical emergency onboard. The cruiseline released the following statement: Earlier today, Carnival Fantasy had to return to its homeport of Mobile, Ala. to disembark a guest experiencing a critical medical emergency. The ship was on the second day of a four-day cruise that departed the Port of Mobile yesterday. As a result, the ship will be forced to miss a scheduled call in Cozumel, Mexico and the remainder of the voyage will be spent at sea. All guests on this voyage will receive a 50% refund of their cruise fare and a 50% credit on a future Carnival cruise. In addition, any guests wishing to disembark in Mobile will have the opportunity to do so and will receive a full refund of their cruise fare. weartv.com/news/l...

New ship needed to replace Africa Mercy
he Africa Mercy hospital ship services the needy in some of the most devastated countries in West Africa, such as Sierra Leone and Togo. Mercy Ships is a global charity that has operated a fleet of hospital ships in developing nations since 1978. They have worked in about 55 developing nations, providing services valued at roughly $1 billion and treated about 2.6 million direct beneficiaries through the ships and services on the ground. Africa Mercy, which has been operating from an old, converted ship, servicing patients for many years, is the only ship in use at this time. A more up-to-date ship is sorely needed and an event is being planned for Sept. 14 to raise funds for that purpose.

Port of Rauma: First parts of the port investments ready. New yard & quay side in use at container terminal
Construction at the Port of Rauma container terminal is progressing well. First part (60 meters) of the new container quay was taken in use on Monday August 14th, 2017. After the addition, the total length of the container quay is now 215 meters.The container quay will be extended to 520 meters within the rest of the year 2017. “We are very satisfied with the new quay side and container yard which was now finished. Quay side operations will get more efficient as the gantry cranes will reach further out. Now we can handle even the longest vessels at the container quay” sums up operations director Mr. Juha Rehmonen (Euroports Rauma Ltd). Managing director Mr. Hannu Asumalahti (Port of Rauma Ltd) points out that connecting the existing container quay with new parts is one of the most challenging parts of the project. Therefore a major milestone has been passed as this part of the quay side is finished and taken into use. “Moreover, it’s important to take into use areas that the port customers can utilize right away through improved terminal operations. The traffic volumes have been positive in 2017, which means that the large port investment will be finished at a suitable time. The container terminal expansion started in the spring 2016 and most of the work will be finished by the end of 2017. The total cost of the project is 25 M€. Alongside the container terminal extension, also the Rauma channel will be dredged from 10 meters to 12 meters maximum authorized draught in cooperation with the Finnish Transport Agency. The dredging will will also be finished by the end of 2017.

Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ Bremen receives Polar Ship Certificate
Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ 155-passenger Bremen has become one of the first passenger ships in the world to receive the Polar Ship Certificate, which will be mandatory for ships operating in the polar regions from January 2018. Adopted by the International Maritime Organization, the International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Polar Code) contains regulations outlining how ships for the polar region must be constructed, what equipment they must carry, and what training crews should be given. Hapag-Lloyd Cruises spent two years making technical modifications to Bremen to ensure she would receive certification from classification society DNV GL.

COSCO Heavy Lifter Carries Shell’s Appomattox Hull
The 40,335 mt hull was loaded onto the semi-submersible heavy lift vessel near Geoje Island, South Korea, on August 6, 2017. The hull is intended for the oil and gas company’s Appomattox deep-water project in the Gulf of Mexico, located 130 kilometers off Louisiana. It is en route to Ingleside, Texas, where the remaining construction work is expected to be completed. The Appomattox development will initially produce from the Appomattox and Vicksburg fields, with average peak production estimated to reach approximately 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe/d) per day. Currently, the 2016-built Xin Guang Hua is sailing in the South China Sea. According to data provided by VesselsValue, the ship is expected to reach its destination at the beginning of October.

Two weeks today will mark the first anniversary since Hanjin Shipping sought court protection becoming one of the most famous shipping bankruptcies in history. “The recent renaming of the 5,067 teu Hanjin Scarlet, the last vessel to bear the Korean carrier’s colours, to Maersk Iyo, has consigned the once mighty Hanjin name to maritime history,” Alphaliner noted in its most recent weekly report.

Fourth covered terminal commissioned
VCK Group commissioned its fourth covered cargo terminal in the Suezhaven in Amsterdam today. The All-Weather Terminal 4 has attracted an investment of around € 11 million. The commissioning of the new terminal means that covered transhipment capacity in Amsterdam has risen to between one and a half and two million tonnes. This now makes Amsterdam the largest provider of covered transhipment in Europe. Developments in the market for all-weather transhipment have spurred growth in volume. Sea-going vessels are becoming larger and often require immediate transhipment between sea-going and inland vessels. The all-weather terminal is therefore three metres wider and four metres higher than the three terminals constructed previously. Moreover, Port of Amsterdam has applied for LME certification. With approval from the London Metal Exchange, the terminal will soon be able to attract cargo from the global market for industrial metals. LME certification is expected to be issued in early 2018.

951-foot Bob Hope wasn’t in distress, military sea command reports
A 951-foot Military Sealift Command vessel that appeared to have run aground near Cultus Bay on Saturday was actually practicing maneuvers, the agency reported. Rick Appling, a deputy operations officer for Military Sealift Command Pacific out of San Diego, confirmed the USNS Bob Hope wasn’t aground as some Cultus Bay residents worried, but was practicing its anchoring techniques. He said the vessel remained in about 100 feet of water and was never in any danger. “For someone who doesn’t know what’s going on, it would appear that the odd maneuvering (back and forth movement of the boat)… that the ship was in some level of distress,” Appling said. Anchors are like fish hooks and need to be “set” to take hold. Doing so requires the ship to put its engines in reverse, which forces the anchor into the seafloor. https://www.southwhidbeyr...

Chennai-Port Blair passenger ships limp on high seas
CHENNAI: Passenger ships sailing to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands from the city shore are losing patronage to the airlines. Engine failures, falty air-conditioners and poor sanitation in ships operated by the Union shipping ministry are just some of the reasons why passengers are opting for air travel. The ship MV Nancowry, which has a passenger capacity of 1,200, may carry less than a few hundreds when it sets sail on Friday. Until Wednesday, only about 80 tickets had been booked. Just 165 passengers had reached Chennai from Port Blair during MV Nancowry's previous voyage. The ship was scheduled to leave Chennai port for Port Blair last Friday but when passengers lined up to book tickets they were informed that the voyage was cancelled due to technical problems. MV Nancowry which was to leave Chennai was rerouted to Vishakapatnam. An official in the shipping services said, "There were a greater number of passengers in Vishakapatnam who required the service. MV Nicobar which was to ferry them to Port Blair had broken down." timesofindia.indi...

People Keep Throwing Eggs at Tourists in Barcelona
When Edgar Torras started leading tours of Barcelona, locals thanked him for bringing in tourists. Seventeen years later, they pelted his customers with eggs and the city has further restricted his route to avoid over-crowding in the historic center. “Suddenly we seem to be the enemy,” said Torras, founder of Barcelona Segway Glides. It’s becoming part of the tourist scene not mentioned in the guidebooks. Some Spaniards increasingly view visitors as a burden rather than an economic boon, with a backlash building in Barcelona and other hot spots. Last month, masked youths attacked a tourist bus in the city, and a protest against incomers is set to take place in the Basque resort of San Sebastian on Thursday. With Spain the world’s biggest tourist destination after France and the U.S., the government is beginning to worry that the unrest could undermine that status. Tourism accounts for about 13 percent of all jobs in Spain. The number of foreign visitors will rise about 12 percent this year to a record 84 million in 2017, according to analysts at CaixaBank SA. https://www.bloomberg.com...

American Duchess River Cruise Ship Christened in New Orleans
The smash of a bottle of Maker's Mark bourbon signified the christening of American Duchess, the newest river boat for the ever-growing American Queen Steamboat Company. The 166-passenger vessel marks the third for the line, which specializes in American river cruises. It joins American Queen -- the world's largest steamboat -- on the Mississippi River, and American Empress, which sails in the Pacific Northwest on the Snake and Columbia rivers. The company also has a fourth ship waiting in the wings for refurbishment. Marissa Applegate, daughter of the cruise line's company chairman John Waggoner, served as the ship's godmother. After the christening, the first passengers boarded for a sailing that will traverse the Mississippi, from New Orleans to Red Wing, Minnesota. "We have all anxiously awaited this day, and it's well worth the wait," Waggoner said, noting the work that went into the ship's complete overhaul, much of it in the Louisiana heat. "We've had a little bit of blood, a little bit of tears and lots and lots of sweat." American Duchess -- which will sail the Ohio, Tennessee and Illinois rivers in addition to a variety of itineraries on the Mississippi -- is an aesthetic departure for the line. While the company's other vessels invoke an old-fashioned Americana look, American Duchess is light and airy, with furnishings akin to a modern luxury hotel. https://www.cruisecritic....

Cunard Prepares to Celebrate Iconic Cruise Ship
Cunard Line is preparing to celebrate the iconic QE2 for its 50th anniversary. The 50th anniversary of this much-loved ship will be remembered as Queen Elizabeth sets sail from Southampton on Friday 8 September for a 17-night voyage. Departing guests will enjoy Venice’s iconic canals, mythical Mount Etna in Sicily and Corfu’s leafy beauty. Angus Struthers, Vice President, Cunard said: “This Mediterranean cruise is perfectly timed to pay tribute to QE2’s launch and naming by HM Queen Elizabeth II 50 years ago. When QE2 came into service in the 1960s, many critics said she wouldn’t last a decade in the age of the jet but her unique design as a dual-purpose ship meant that she was versatile enough to operate both as a transatlantic liner and a cruise ship.” Celebrations focus on five special theme days, each of which will be accompanied by QE2 inspired menus, talks from special guests, historical snippets in the daily programme, past-passenger gatherings and QE2 quizzes. Angus Struthers added: “Given how famous and loved she was, we felt this was a great opportunity to pay tribute to this Cunarder’s remarkable life onboard our newest ship, Queen Elizabeth; herself designed to offer a perfect luxury cruise holiday.” Themes include Moving in Royal Circles which looks back at the unique and special bond between QE2 and the Royal Family; The Falklands which acknowledges the ship’s service as a troop ship in the 1982 conflict; Triumph of a Great Tradition examining the QE2’s remarkable career achievements and the long history of Cunard ‘firsts’, and World Flagship in tribute to QE2’s 26 world cruises that made her an icon in cities across the globe. Celebrations culminate on QE2 Day – 20 September 2017 – exactly 50 years since the ship was launched by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Events will include a QE2 ball, and a historical retrospective of the ship’s service life to be hosted in Queen Elizabeth’s 850 seat Royal Court Theatre. https://www.cruisehive.co...

Moon admits gov't failure in ferry sinking, vows to get to the truth
SEOUL, Aug. 16 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in offered an emotional apology Wednesday for the tragic sinking of the Sewol ferry that took place long before he came into office, also pledging to get to the bottom of the incident that he said was partly caused by a government failure. Moon's apology on behalf of the government came at a meeting with some 200 victims of the 2014 sinking and their families at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. "Even now, the people do not know why such an absurd accident took place, why the government was so incompetent and irresponsible in dealing with the accident after it took place, and what Cheong Wa Dae was doing while so many children were dying. We do not know why (the former government) tried so hard to avoid and ignore fact-finding and why it took so much time to recover the ship," Moon said, according to Cheong Wa Dae pool reports. "One thing for sure is that the government, no matter what the cause was, failed to prevent the tragedy. Though belated, I offer my apology and condolences on behalf of the government," he added. english.yonhapnew...

Vessel congestion hits consumers
The congestion of container vessels at the outer anchorage of the Chittagong port is proving to be costly for traders and consumers. First, foreign vessels owners are charging the importers and exporters extra money. Second, they are counting demurrage every day for berthing the vessels at the outer-anchorage. So, the prices of imported goods are going up, eventually affecting the consumer. Bangladesh imports over 4,500 items from different countries. These items include raw materials like clinker, limestone, rice, wheat, onion, garlic, and ginger. In the 2016–2017 fiscal year, Bangladesh imported 6.2 crore tonnes of different goods worth Tk. 32,000 crore. The prices of almost all imported goods are going up by the day. Although foreign vessel operators’ organisations had earlier fixed the fare via a declaration, they have now changed the system. They are charging more under titles like Port Congestion Surcharge, Emergency Cost Recovery Surcharge, and Additional Fare. According to the new tariff, they are charging an extra USD 150 for goods-laden containers and USD 75 for bringing empty containers to Chittagong from others ports. The businessmen mostly import and export goods through ports like Singapore, Colombo in Sri Lanka, Kelang in Malaysia, and Shanghai, Ningbo, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen in China. For waiting at the outer-anchorage, a container vessel has to cough up USD 7,000 to USD 12,000 every day as demurrage. Most vessels are being forced to berth for 12 to 15 days while the normal turnaround time is two to three days, said Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) and shipping agents. www.theindependen...

Mombasa port records unusual traffic jam as ships wait for clearance
MOMBASA, KENYA: Three ships with 163.6 million bags of maize are among 23 vessels yet to dock at the Port of Mombasa as the facility experiences a huge ships traffic snarl up due election jitters and upsurge in the import of cereals. On Monday, Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) said the off-take of cargo at the port dropped last week after truck owners withdrew their vehicle for fear of election related violence. But security officials in Mombasa and cargo owners said that no single case of either attack on trucks or theft of cargo passing through the northern corridor to or from the port of Mombasa. A spot check on list of vessels posted at the KPA website indicate that some of the vessels arrived in the country mid last month but they are yet to dock and offload. Other vessels that are yet to get space to dock are those with wheat, sugar and fertilizer and KPA attributed the ships snarl up to the increased volume of duty free maize.

The path of a giant container ship that ran aground near Antwerp, Belgium on the river Scheldt on Monday has been retraced and animated thanks to satellite technology. In the sped-up video animation, CSCL Jupiter can be seen leaving a berth between Saftingen and Lilo on Antwerp’s northern outskirts, rounding two bends in the Scheldt before going off course and grounding near Bath, Belgium at approximately 0653. CSCL Jupiter reportedly suffered a steering gear failure, causing it to run aground on the banks of the Scheldt while heading for the North Sea, en route to Hamburg from Antwerp. The 14,300 TEU, Hong Kong-flagged ship blocked access to the port for some time on Monday morning (14 August), when the first tug boats attending the scene found the ship to be hard aground on a sandbank. Several hours later, at high tide, some 16 tug boats and a patrol boat are shown on hand to aid in refloating the vessel, which subsequently sailed back to Antwerp for inspection. According to the China Shipping Agency Co website in the Netherlands, China Shipping Container Lines Co Ltd, is a specialised corporation affiliated to China Shipping (Group) Company, involved in container liner and other related services.

Shore power at Montreal enables MS Veendam to kill her engines
August 15, 2017 - The Montreal Port Authority’s (MPA) shore power project has been completed, which means vessels docking at the Port of Montreal’s new cruise terminal can be powered by electricity rather than their diesel engines. This is the first green initiative of its kind in Quebec, says MPA, explaining the project was rolled out in two phases: the first was shore power for wintering vessels, and the second for cruise ships. In 2016, MPA developed four power supply stations at berths 25, 27, 29 and M2 for vessels that winter at the port. As part of the rehabilitation of Alexandra Pier and the cruise terminal, MPA worked with its technical partners to have the necessary equipment installed to be able to provide a sufficiently powerful electrical supply for cruise ships.

Kingston port congestion should clear up this week
Exporters are optimistic that the backlog of unprocessed cargo waiting to be shipped out from Kingston Freeport Terminal will be cleared and operations will be returned to normal by Friday, Aug. 18. . The last few days at the Terminal has seen pandemonium and confusion as operators try to ship goods and clear goods at the downtown terminal.

You are under custody, sir.’‘ ‘‘If you don’t follow the orders we will target you. I have already warned you before. Libya’s government has warned you before but you don’t listen. It is your problem.,” he continues.

Port of Oakland OKs new high-power line to plug in more ships
Port of Oakland officials commissioned new equipment bolstering efforts to curb diesel emissions from ships. The Port OKd a high-voltage cable system that will connect more vessels to Oakland’s landside power grid. The Port said the breakthrough will accelerate the program that has helped cut emissions 76 percent in Oakland since 2009, the company announces in its press release. The Port said the 200-foot cable-on-reel system will be deployed by Oakland International Container Terminal. It will connect to ships that can’t closely align with landside electrical vaults at berth. When the ships plug into the vaults, they’ll switch off onboard diesel engines and rely on grid power. The result: no diesel emissions during Oakland calls. The Port said nearly 400 vessels are equipped to plug into Oakland’s landside electrical system. The problem: ships sometimes berth beyond the reach of their onboard power cables. That’s where the terminal’s new $230,000 cable system comes in. Its 10-foot-tall reel is affixed to a trailer. The mobile platform can be deployed alongside any vessel. The cable will connect ships to one of the marine terminal’s 18 shorepower electrical vaults.
