Saga Sapphire, Independence of the Seas & MSC Lirica Southampton Debut
A debutante on a cold 31st March 2012 when MSC Lirica arrived for 8.30am.  Her sister, Opera, was a regular visitor and would be returning for her second season in May.  I had last seen Lirica in the Med during my Celebrity Constellation cruise in October 2010, when she was with us in Genova, Civitavecchia and Salerno.  Also in was Saga Sapphire, still preparing for her new maiden on he 2nd April, and Indy.  Because Indy was tucked up in City, Lirica would be in Ocean.  Down the marina keeping warm in his car was John Kennedy, who gave us a lift home and we're very greatful to him because we defrosted quicker!  We had considered the ferry over but my back was hurting so just glad to be home.
