The former Celebrity Cruises and Pullmantur Cruises cruise ship Zenith arrived at the shipbreaking yard in Alang, India. The 30-year-old cruise ship, which is currently anchored off Alang, will be broken up for scrap in the coming months. Zenith was built in 1992 by the Meyer shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

The ship follows her sister, Horizon, arrived at the Aliaga shipbreaking yard in Turkey just over three weeks ago, also to be broken up. Both ships sailed for Celebrity Cruises and Spanish cruise line Pullmantur.

Zenith awaits scrapping in India

Built in 1992 at the world famous Meyer shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, after almost thirty years of service, Zenith has reached its final destination. The former Celebrity Cruises and Pullmantur cruise ship has arrived at the Alang shipbreaking yard in Alang, India, where it will be broken up into scrap.

The 47,413 gross ton cruise ship is currently anchored off Alang, awaiting when it will be beached in preparation for the start of demolition work.

Since 2021, Zenith awaited her fate in Greece, where she remained until recently. She then sailed to Oman, where she was renamed TSM Singaporeuntil the time to set sail for Alang.

Zenith was built by Meyer Shipyard in Germany for Celebrity Cruises and began her career sailing from Florida to the Caribbean and Bermuda. She was operational for Celebrity Cruises until 2007. In 2007, Zenith transferred to Pullmantur Cruises, the Spanish cruise line owned by Royal Caribbean Group.

From 2007 he spent most of his time sailing around the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands until he transferred to CDF Cruises from France, joining its sister ship, L’Horizon, in 2014.

His career at the French Cruise Line, also owned by the Royal Caribbean Group, did not last long. In 2017 the company was dissolved and Zenith resumed service with Pullmantur Cruises.

However, at the time, the Spanish cruise line was already in trouble. Royal Caribbean Group announced in July 2019 that Zenith would be sold to Peace Boat in early 2020. She was last active as a peace boat in 2020-2021 before being replaced by Princess of the Sun.

Two Sisters Now Scrapped

Zenith of celebrities was a exact copy of his sister, Celebrity Skyline. Both ships had thirty-year sailing careers, mostly sailing for the same cruise lines.

Scrapped Monarch and Sovereign cruise ships

When it was built, Celebrity Skyline was the very first newly built cruise ship for the cruise line. Celebrity Skyline arrived at Aliaga shipbreaking yard, Turkey in August 2022, also for demolition.

Zenith of celebrities and Horizon marked the start of Celebrity Cruises becoming a global giant in the cruise industry. The same cannot be said for Pullmantur Cruises. Although the business was popular at first, the last two years before the pandemic showed a sharp decline in profitability.

In June 2020, Royal Caribbean Group and the Board of Directors announced a reorganization, which evolved into a complete liquidation in July 2021.

The second day of my MSC Seashore cruise was a much anticipated visit to the Ocean Cay Marine Reserve (Ocean Cay). MSC’s private island is the Bahamas, not far from Bimini.

With the current weather issues in the Caribbean, I felt very lucky that we were able to call at this port.

There are tons of activities on the island. You can enjoy a day in the sun or participate in many activities. One of the great things about Ocean Cay is that you can have a fantastic time on the island without spending extra money because there is so much to do.

Here’s how I spent my day.

Morning / arrival on the island

I got up quite early this morning, just before 7am, having a very good night’s sleep. One thing about an inside cabin is that it’s nice and dark, which makes it easier to sleep. I set an alarm, however, as I didn’t want to oversleep today’s layover.

I headed to the market buffet for a light breakfast, with eggs and toast and some apples to take away later in the morning. In general, the buffet is well stocked with a good selection of breakfast items.

Market Square has spectacular views from most vantage points, and I could see our approach to the island while eating. Although lightly covered at this time, the lighthouse was highly visible with its crisp red and white stripes. My first impression is that MSC has done an impressive job with this island, which is a converted industrial site.

Around 9am I ventured out of the ship and the clouds started to clear. Our ship docked at the dock, which is great; no tendering is involved. It is a short walk from the main center, where there is a reception pavilion, as well as a steel ban to welcome guests.

Walking around the main area, the island has a natural Bahamian feel, with colorful buildings that house a number of shops and services for passengers.

explore the island

Without a fixed plan, I followed the main path to South Beach. which is one of the many beaches on the island. It is quite long, with plenty of sunbeds and chairs in the shade. It faces a calm lagoon with crystal clear waters, ideal for families. It overlooks North Beach, which is connected by a small bridge, which was not busy at all.

After resting in the sun for a bit, I wandered around a bit more in another part of the island. You really get a feeling of paradise on this island. It’s different from other cruise ship stops in that there are no pools or waterslides, but it has a very relaxed vibe with tons of space to hang out.

Eating places

Most of the eating places on the island are free, a bonus for passengers. The main spot is Seakers Food Court, a large buffet with tons of covered outdoor seating.

It has a fairly extensive menu with a variety of salads and meats such as burgers, hot dogs, pork chops, sausages and ribs, as well as jerk chicken and fish. There are lots of good sides, including fries, corn on the cob, and mac and cheese. There’s plenty of fresh fruit for desserts, as well as cookies and other sweets. My meal of mahi-mahi, black rice and beans, yucca salad and a small burger was not bad, but a bit dry.

They also have a bar in the food court where you can use your onboard account to buy beer and soda, although there are bars nearby for something more substantial.

There are a few food trucks spread all over the island that serve barbecue dishes with pasta salad, fries and brownies, all free. Funnily enough, they only had ketchup and mayonnaise, limited toppings for any hot dog lover. You can also get coffee and ice cream for an extra charge at nearby Smiling Fish.

Afternoon activities

After filling my stomach and a quick return to the boat, I set off to explore the other part of the island, including Sunset Beach, which had very few people and the most amazing views.

This led me to the island’s iconic lighthouse, which sits at the easternmost point. Such a beautiful walk that takes you along a winding path to a bar at the foot of the lighthouse. There were a few energetic passengers walking to the top of the lighthouse, but I took a pass in the midday heat.

This area has got to be my favorite spot on the island, with its stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. With a light breeze and old school Bahamian design, it’s a great place to hang out in a quiet and relaxing environment. Some of the other bars closer to the ship were quite busy, but if you want some peace and quiet this is a great place.

I must commend MSC for designing this island; it looks like a tropical oasis They have done a great job planting bushes and palm trees all over the island; it’s not too neat in its landscape, which adds to the authentic touch.

Approvals

Getting around the island is quite easy (and I say that as someone with reduced mobility). There are several easy-to-use walking trails throughout the island, as well as open-top buses that take guests everywhere. They even covered shaded areas which is helpful on a hot day.

You can use your MSC card all over the island to make purchases, buy drinks and any other extras. The MSC drinks package operates on the island.

For added convenience, there are free lockers in the changing rooms, which are dotted around the island. I saw nowhere to find extra towels, although I may have missed them.

Activities / things to do

On the day of our visit, there were many complementary activities on the program, including volleyball, kite flying, a treasure hunt and pétanque.

For an additional charge you can also rent kayaks, a jet ski and floating boards, as well as boat/snorkeling trips, which I didn’t do.

There are a number of shops on the island, with Bahamian-made products such as soaps, ceramic works, authentic Bahamian sponges, and classic straw bags. There are also plenty of classic t-shirts, jewelry, and other memorabilia.

Evening activities

Later in the afternoon I returned to the ship for a quick break and to grab some food before the evening activities. One of the highlights of visiting Ocean Cay is the nighttime entertainment on the island. With the route change, it ended up being the same time as the official night; however, I was much more interested in spending the evening ashore.

Many people had returned to the ship when I came back along the small wharf. The sun was starting to set and the daytime temperature in the 90s eased to become more moderate.

Crowds started gathering along the main boulevard, and in the distance I could see some of the Junkanoo dancers gathering. Junkanoo is a famous Bahamian tradition where dancers and musicians come together to celebrate, usually around Christmas, but luckily for us MSC puts on a show all year round.

Dressed in incredibly bright costumes with beautiful feathered hats, it was a sight to behold. The musicians followed with drums and shakers, creating a magical repeating beat. They traveled along the main island road, dancing with the passengers, and everyone had a great time. Onlookers joined them in concert on their way back to the ship, the MSC Seashore sign gently illuminating the night. What an amazing evening and end to an amazing day at Ocean Cay

Tomorrow is a day at sea and I look forward to exploring the ship more.

A huge fight broke out on the Carnival Sunrise cruise ship on September 9, and it was caught on camera.

Miami Herald

Vacations are meant to be relaxing. An onboard video from a recent Carnival Cruise voyage shows quite the opposite.

According to multiple media reports, passengers got into a violent fight aboard the Carnival Sunrise on September 9.

Various passengers shared footage of the nasty crisis, which involved a handful of people, punching and fighting by the pool.

The Sunrise was at the end of a five-day round-trip Western Caribbean cruise, according to CruiseMapper.com.

According to one witness, TikTok user @divamarie03, whose name is Laura Bryant, the altercation started about someone taking someone else’s place at a bar.

The video shows a number of individuals, many in swimsuits, punching each other as people shout and try to break up the argument and a whistle sounds.

Woman Says Off-Camera She Saw Man Hit Woman: ‘That’s a female dog kick.’

A man wearing a lanyard who appears to be a ship’s employee attempts to tone down the violence and uses his body to block the blows but is overwhelmed.

In the comments section of Bryant’s video, another passenger who claimed to be there said at least 30 people were involved in the skirmish.

Another person chimed in: “All I know is I was filling my cup with lemonade, then, boom, they were fighting!” Phew, you just had to be there.

It is not known if any arrests were made or if anyone involved was injured. Carnival did not respond to the Miami Herald’s request for comment Friday night.

Renowned real-time news reporter Madeleine Marr has worked for the Miami Herald since 2003. She has covered topics such as travel, fashion and food. In 2007, she helped launch the newspaper’s daily People page, attending red carpet events, award ceremonies and press junkets; interview some of the biggest names in show business; and host his own online show. She is from New York and has two daughters.

Whether you’re curious about a cruise ship’s engine or just want to avoid the cabins surrounding that noisy area, an engine room can be an interesting place.

We describe what the engine room of the cruise ship contains, what it does, and the amount of noise and vibration generated in this area.

Where is the engine room on a cruise ship?

On newer cruise ships, engine rooms are located aft of the ship and on the lower decks. They are not completely aft but closer to midships.

Regardless of vessel size and engine type, engines are extremely noisy. Engineers compensate for this by incorporating sound reduction features and technology to keep the room well insulated, so it’s less noisy for guests.

Insulation, in this case, has a dual purpose. It reduces noise and prevents the heat generated by a running motor from escaping onto adjacent decks. On a cruise ship, this is very important, where comfort is one of the top priorities for the cruiser.

How noisy is the motor?

The decibel range for a standard cruise ship engine exceeds 173 decibels. It’s extremely loud and in a range that can damage hearing in seconds. With good insulation and soundproofing functions, it won’t sound so loud.

If you are in the engine room while the engine is running, it will still be very loud, regardless of the noise reduction technology used. To put things into perspective, those entering the room are required to wear hearing protection. Otherwise, they may suffer hearing damage.

However, customers need not worry if their cabins are in this area. The noise level will not damage your hearing as the surrounding cabins are well insulated. However, you can still hear noise and feel vibrations through walls and floors.

As mentioned, the motor vibrates while it is running. They can be felt in the surrounding areas, including the huts adjacent to them. This can cause the hangers to vibrate or move other objects in the cabin, which can disturb your rest.

What is the engine size?

Modern cruise ships have more than one engine. Larger ships, such as the Oasis-class of Royal Caribbean, contain six engines. Other ships – like the Carnival Splendor from Carnival Cruise Line – may be as few as four, depending on the size of the ship, its age and the cruise line.

Royal Caribbean Oasis Class Cruise Ships

The engine room itself is vast and spans several decks. Space is needed not only for massive engines, but also for fuel tanks, generators, engine workshop and control room.

How does the heat escape from the machine room?

Heat from the engines is removed through a series of heat exchangers. This is on the exhaust path that precedes the turbocharger on the path to the scrubber. The exhaust gases reach a temperature of 663°F but are continuously cooled by heat extraction until they reach 86°F as they exit the funnel.

The engines are fuel and heat efficient. The recovered heat is used for many services, including the desalination of salt water into fresh water and oil heating (if heavy fuel oil is used). Soft water can be produced by reverse osmosis to supplement an evaporator.

Where is the fuel stored?

Fuel is usually stored in double bottom tanks. They are distributed along the entire length of the cruise ship with ballasts. The only fuel tanks located in an engine room are the service and slop tanks.

What are the cabins like at this location?

Most people avoid this area because of the noise. However, there are other reasons why these cabins are less desirable besides the fact that they are noisy.

The cabins close to the engine room can be:

  • Smaller than average cabins
  • Do not contain windows
  • Receive engine noise
  • Be subject to vibrations, especially when docking

These rooms tend to be cramped and small. They are also not priority parts in the design of the ship. Booking this room may mean you will experience vibrations and noise from the engine. You can hear the crew going back and forth in the engine room throughout the day and night.

These cabins are located on the lower deck and amidships. They tend to be windowless and dark. Rooms located in the center of a ship usually do not contain the luxury of windows, which can make people feel claustrophobic.

Are there any benefits?

Some people argue that most people don’t spend much time in a cabin – they’re too busy exploring the cruise ship. There’s plenty to do on board, and if you like the social scene, you might not spend much time inside the cabin other than sleeping.

The main reason people choose an inside cabin on a lower deck is because it is cheaper. Most people book a cruise for the experience, not for the sleep. Also, what most people don’t know is that if you book a cabin near the engine room, you may be able to upgrade.

An upgrade option does not necessarily mean that more money will be needed. This means that if a better cabin is available or vacant, such as last minute cancellations, you can be upgraded for free. However, this is not guaranteed.

The engine room is truly the heart of the ship. This is where the crankshafts, pistons and hammers turn to move the ship forward. The chief engineer and crew work 24/7 to keep the entire vessel running smoothly. It allows onboard luxuries like electricity, plumbing and air conditioning to work.

Besides housing the generators and engines, pumps and heat exchangers are located here to cool the engine and stabilize the engines and fins, in addition to the bow thruster system. Since the equipment is dependent on electricity, modern ships contain backup generators outside the main engine room in the event of a fire.

Also read: Future Fuel – What is an LNG-powered cruise ship?

Generators power all vital functions to run a vessel, such as emergency lights, communications and navigation systems. If the generator fails, there are also backup batteries that can be used for short periods.

All of this machinery is overseen by the engine control room, which contains lights, displays, alarms and switches where every piece of equipment can be monitored to ensure the cruise ship is running smoothly.

By Asli Kandemir (Bloomberg) Turkey said the Greek coastguard fired on a vessel in international waters in the northern Aegean Sea, marking a potential further escalation in tension between NATO countries on Saturday, as that Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis accused his neighbor of “bullying”. ”

Two Greek boats opened fire on a ship flying the Comorian flag ( 93 meter passenger vessel) named Anatolian, state agency Anadolu reported, citing the Turkish Coast Guard. The vessel had 18 people and there were no injuries, Anadolu said.

The ship was not emitting a signal, according to an official from the Greek shipping ministry, so the Greek coast guard called for it to stop to be boarded. The captain refused control and sped up, prompting the Coast Guard to fire warning shots in the air and not at the vessel, the official said, requesting anonymity as details have not yet been released public.

The incident is a reminder that tensions continue to seep into the region. Ahead of next year’s election, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has stepped up his criticism of what Turkey calls a growing Greek military buildup on islands near its coastline as well as Western military support for Athens, with which Ankara has long-standing territorial disputes.

Speaking on Saturday night at the Thessaloniki International Fair in northern Greece, Mitsotakis addressed the general situation, saying Greece would not give in to threats.

Mitsotakis called on Turkey to stop its “unhistorical arguments” and said Greece is saying “no, Mr. Erdogan” to his country’s threats. “Bullying yok,” the prime minister said, using the Turkish word “yok” meaning the aggressive rhetoric must stop.

Greece has repeatedly called on Turkey to stop questioning its sovereignty over the Dodecanese – a group of islands off the Turkish coast including Rhodes and Kos – which were ceded to Greece by Italy after the Second World War. World War. Turkey argues that Athens must abide by a 1947 peace treaty that allows only a small contingent of Greek soldiers on the Dodecanese.

State firefighters and the nation’s navy earlier said in separate statements that 14 people had been reported dead.

State firefighters said in the statement that the boat did not have clearance to carry passengers on the intercity waterway and began the journey from an illegal port.

Civilian police have opened an investigation into the crash, the state fire department statement added.

“The civil police adopt all appropriate measures, within the framework of their powers, to investigate and prosecute those responsible.”

The passenger, a mother in her 50s who was on board the Royal Caribbean ship, Harmony of the Seas, was attacked at Green Cay, off Nassau, according to Royal Bahamas Police Superintendent Chrislyn Skippings.

While the cruise ship was docked in Nassau, the family booked an excursion with a local tour company that took them to a popular snorkeling area, she said.

Family members then saw a shark attacking the woman and rushed to her aid. The mother had suffered bites to her “upper extremities”, Skippings said.

Travel agency operators and family members were able to pull the woman onto the boat and rush to the nearest dock, where paramedics responded and reported no vital signs, Skippings said. .

“Royal Caribbean is providing support and assistance to loved ones of passengers during this difficult time,” a statement from the cruise line said. Harmony of the Seas is currently on a seven-night cruise after departing Port Canaveral, Florida on Sunday.

The beach where the attack occurred has been closed, authorities said, and the incident is under investigation.

Shark attacks remain extremely rare. According to the International Shark Attack File, the odds of being fatally attacked by the creature remain less than 1 in 4 million.
How to survive a shark attack - or better yet, avoid one altogether

Last year, there were 73 confirmed cases of unprovoked shark attacks worldwide, including 47 in the United States, which has the most documented unprovoked bites in the world, according to the Shark Attack File.

It’s unclear why the sharks bite, but experts say many attacks are “cases of mistaken identity,” occurring in conditions of poor water visibility, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History.

Many bites occur when humans swim in or near large schools of prey fish. Sharks may also bite because they feel threatened and are simply trying to defend themselves.

The £1.2 billion Global Dream II is scrapped ahead of its maiden voyage.

With the capacity to carry 9,000 passengers, the Global Dream II was going to be an incredible sight and the largest cruise ship in the world in terms of passenger capacity.

It beats the Wonder of the Seas, which currently holds the record for the largest cruise ship.

In terms of capacity, the Wonder of the Seas can accommodate an impressive 6,988 passengers on board.

However, if Global Dream II were to go ahead, just over 2,000 additional people could board it.

The reason this huge ship is scrapped is because of its gargantuan cost.

It would have cost £1.2bn to build, but even £200m under budget.

The ship was built by German-Hong Kong company MV Werften, which filed for bankruptcy in January 2022, just as the ship was nearing the end of construction.

The cruise industry has unsurprisingly been one of the hardest hit during the pandemic.

DO NOT MISS…

The first Global Dream ship could also suffer the same fate if not recovered.

Both Global Dreams are currently in storage at a German shipyard, but have recently been sold.

The shipyard will instead be used to build military ships, so Global Dream and Global Dream II must be purchased before 2023.

According to Auto Evolution, the first Global Dream ship is in a better position to be purchased as construction began in 2018, a year before her sister Global Dream II.

But why are buyers reluctant to buy the two cruise ships?

They were previously designed for the Asian cruise market.

This means that they would have to undergo major modifications in order to be used in Europe or North America.

Auto Evolution also suggested that while the Incredible Ships will hopefully gain a buyer and operator, demand for cruise liners has plummeted.
