Celebrity Constellation & Enchantment of the Seas in Antigua

On the 12th December 2011, my Celebrity Constellation cruise arrived in sunny Antigua.  Behind us was Enchantment of the Seas, stretched sister of my beloved Vision of the Seas.  Both of us were due for 8am and would be sailing at 5pm.

My tour was 12.30pm so I went on the pier earlier so I could get some photos of both ships.  Later we were led to the bus so I managed some from the side angle before taking a last few from around after we returned.
Who was leaving first at 5pm?  Well it turned out to be Enchantment, who was throwing her ropes before the hour.  She gave three short blasts to signal astern before we blasted to each other as she backed up.  We threw ours as she was turning then reversed ourselves.  I was glad she went first because we'd have been miles away otherwise.
