Down below in the forward (Britannia) lounge things are progressing well – the floor covering is laid, most of the panelling is up and the seating frames are ready to be fixed. But there is still a lot to be completed before the ship is ready for service. Personally, I can’t see her being on the channel for Wednesday. I think there is a minimum of 3 or 4 days work still to do, then the crew have to spend most of a day doing their drills (fire and emergency) Thursday is an ‘off service day’ anyway, so maybe we’ll see her ‘out’ on Friday 8th – fingers crossed!
Below are some recent photos – before and after painting - also, there are contrasting pictures of the forward lounge taken 11 days apart.
