Voyager of the Seas & Boudicca
As I was in Harwich on the 3rd May 2009, due to sail on Vision of the Seas, my dad went to the marina to get photos of Voyager of the Seas, the first of Royal Caribbean's 138,000grt impressive Voyager class series.  She made her debut on the 21st November 1999.  Boudicca was also in, preparing for a normal cruise while Voyager was due to sail to Hamburg at noon.
The sign below was at one end and had never been seen before.  Considering the amount of idiots, especially kids, who climb over the rocks in all conditions, there should be others all along.  One of these days there'll be a serious accident and they'll be blamed by the parents who let them do it in the first place..
The new Ocean Terminal was just six days away from welcoming its first passengers, although the official opening wasn't until the 29th May.  Meanwhile at 12.30pm, Voyager set off on her way.  Several people down the marina cheered and waved, not realising they were just heading to refit.
So off she went for a short spruce up, shorter than the one for Brilliance the year before.  She returned on the 13th May for her repositioning to Barcelona for the season.  For photos of her sailing them, click here.
