Celebrity Equinox UK Debut
The brand new Celebrity ship, Celebrity Equinox, left Emshaven on the 17th July 2009 and headed directly for Southampton.  This 122,000grt ship is the second of the Solstice class.  After missing seeing a glimpse of Celebrity Solstice last year before she headed from her fitting out berthto the States, it was with great disappointment Equinox's arrival time in her home for the following twenty days was a rather low-key 5am on the 19th.  Crown Princess had already passed but it was too dark to get try to get anything.  But since it was beginning to lighten (albeit rather too slowly), I thought I'd try out my new camera as she came into view at 4.22am.  Unfortunately these are the best of the bunch since I had double glazing in the way and nothing sturdy to balance it on.
Due to problems with my feet after my cruise on Jewel of the Seas, I was unable to get down to take some daylight photos that day.  Although, if they had her arrive at a more reasonable time, I would have suffered!  To see photos of her in dock and sailing on an overnight jolly, click here.
