New Saga Cruise Ship Completes Complex Conveyance

Spirit of Adventure which is a new cruise ship for British-based Saga Cruises has completed the very complex river Ems conveyance. The vessel departed the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany on Sunday and transferred to Emden.

You can also take a look at photos of when the ship first floated out at the shipyard right here.

The ship sailed backward along the river Ems towards the North Sea with the assistance of two tugs. Along the way, the new ship had to go through locks and tight passageways with only inches to spare on either side. It’s a complex operation that takes hours and the weather can have a major impact on timings.

Cruise Hive readers can take a look at the video posted by Meyer Werft as the ship commenced on her river conveyance:

The operation was carried out by the Pilot Brotherhood Emden team but this time with reduced staff due to COVID-19. Even though there were fewer workers the ship still managed to reach Emden nice and smoothly.

Spirit of Adventure is currently undergoing Sea Trials in the North Sea to make sure the ship is seaworthy. A number of technical aspects will be tested which can’t be done when in port along with propulsion systems. This is one of the final major steps before the ship is delivered to the cruise line.
