Nobel Caledonia's Island Sky
Following our announcement yesterday, concerning our forthcoming ship visit and official drawing presentation aboard Island Sky on August 7th 2013 at Harwich International Port, it is a great disappointment that we have to report that the planned visit has now been CANCELLED.
Noble Caledonia informed us yesterday afternoon that the planned brief visit will no longer be possible, due to Harwich International Port requesting that no visitors to the ship.
Island Sky is will be berthed at Berth 3 at the Port, as on the same day the only cruise facility available will be used by Brilliance of the Seas.
The berth which the ship has been allocated has been described as a ‘remote berthed with no access’. The berth is normally used by passenger and/or cargo ferries.
The staff at Noble Caledonia were only made aware that no visitors were allowed on board Island Sky after Harwich International Port informed them of this on July 30th. Prior to this on the same day we contacted the Port to ask about accessing the ship at Berth 3 and were informed that no visitors were allowed, which we immediately reported to Noble Caledonia.
Noble Caledonia informed us that we were indeed correct with reporting that visitors were not allowed and extended their sincere apologies in having to cancel the planned visit to Island Sky. In addition to this Noble Caledonia informed us that Island Sky is not due to berthed at Harwich International Port in 2014, but that it might be possible to visit the ship at Portsmouth on May 24th 2014.
