Jewel of the Seas, Queen Elizabeth (II) & Eurodam
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all cruise lines suspended operations from various dates in March 2020.  Eurodam made her 4th visit on the 26th March 2021 and first when it was light enough, arriving from refit in Brest.  Jewel had arrived on the 25th and staying to the 27th while Betty docked around 12.30am and was staying to the 28th.  We had been booked on Betty when Cunard announced their original return to service coastal sailings.  It was the first and three nights, sailing to Lyme Bay and the Isles of Scilly, but was cancelled in December.  Eurodam moved off, with the assistance of Svitzer Harty and Svitzer Bargate in the second hail shower within half an hour but thankfully the sun decided to shine on her.  Jewel eventually left on thr 29th April, Cadiz first stop for refit before going to Limassol for cruising from June.
