Awoke this morning to find the Enchantment of the Seas looking as if it ran into the point of Fort Amsterdam, at least from our prospective. It left yesterday and now it's back but it just seems to be floating around just outside Great Bay. Weird. Maybe mechanical issues?

There are many boats just drifting around. You can't turn them off.

No mechanical issues, I’m sure. It’s just what they do day in and day out. There was another one out there this morning, too, but I think it went to look for Saba which has been mostly missing since a day or two after we arrived, making only brief and vague appearances. Back vaguely right now so perhaps it was found? 😊😊


Respectfully,

Now I'm wondering if they are performing safety drills. It looked like they were lifting lifeboats up and down.

Interesting Pat, from our prospective at the Belair we have seem Saba since got here even if it is dim.

We’ve seen it a few times this trip but barely so. The haze makes it difficult to see from our location at times but we know she’s there. There have been other trips it’s been so vivid you feel like you can see the cars moving on the roads.

Great specific site. Shows seven ships near SXM with four of them docked

Yes, we use the site daily for years. Just now out front we have Brilliance of the Seas, Adventure OTS and Enchantment OTS. It's everchanging.

Pat--for all the "of the Seas" or "OTS", the parent company is Royal Caribbean.
