Arcadia (IV), Norwegian Jade, Azura & Ventura
Norwegian Jade made a long overdue return to Southampton for a season of cruises on the 14th May 2017.  She had last called in 2009 when NCL pulled her out.  Today she was heading to Norway from here and until 20th June when she heads to Hamburg until returning on the 9th August for a further six weeks before repositioning in New York.  She was due to sail first at 4pm followed by Arcadia and Azura at 4.30pm and Ventura 5pm.  Ha ha!  But it wasn't CMA CGM Jules Verne which delayed them.  Arcadia's muster was 4pm with Ventura's at 4.30pm.  Arcadia's ropes began to go just five minutes late.  With tug Apex on her bow, she went astern.  Mazza Peers and her hubby Russ were down there as well.  Typically, as all attention was on her, Jade slipped away from the berth.  Azura followed just after 5pm while Ventura began moving out of Ocean Dock as Azura was passing.
