Independence of the Seas, Azamara Pursuit Southampton Debut & Sapphire Princess
An old favourite returned to Southampton on the 28th July 2018.  Azamara Pursuit was last seen leaving Southampton as Adonia in October 2017.  Carnival had sold her, handover March 2018, despite there being cruises booked through to March 2019.  She began a four month transformation in Freeport, Bahamas before crossing the Atlantic on the 21st March and having a wet dock at Harland & Wolff in Belfast, arriving there on the 4th April.  She remained there until the 24th July, when she did a jaunt to Douglas and back, setting sail for Southampton two days later.  Ironically, on her previous call, Indy was in as well.  Due to recovering from surgery and her 5.45am arrival time, I couldn't walk down so had to get her from the window.  Sapphire Princess at least arrived at a decent time.
