Hi June & Bruce

it is possible  she would go via Singapore to uplift fuel then up the Malacca straight, at the moment she is out of range

It's Sad my first cruise was when she was part of the Saga Fleet as Saga Ruby

This wouldn't be too surprising, Bruce.
Her beautiful sister Saga Rose went to a 'green' scrapping yard up the Yangste

(Way off topic!
Best r'gds to you both - still need to make a date to view the Best Boat!
Might you be in Kotor this midsummer?)

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for what seemed like ages...Please don't leave her looking more like a Hotel-with-a-Hull than the greatest Liner afloat - Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Hi June
Not to sure which tracking program you use but her AIS signal shows oasis as her name on on my live map traveling down the Riau Archipelago
towards Singapore
If I remember rightly she Uplifted Fuel at Singapore on her outward journey to Satterhipp

Shame she couldn't have found use as a hotel in Singapore a few years back. It would have given me an excuse to visit.

Sad isn't it
We are all watching Knowing the eventual out come, hoping for that miracle to happen, bit like a family waiting for a loved one to pass, still hoping for a miracle

Thankfully at my age I wont see  QE2  do her final Journey ,  that is provided that the present plans come to fruition

I asked a Singapore based friend to watch out for Saga Ruby, and got this message from him this morning :

Quote
Oasia (Saga Ruby) passed through the Singapore Strait today at noon and is currently heading northwards up the Malacca Strait.

I suspect we all have a fair idea where she might be heading...

If ever there was a ship that needed marine-style White Knights,
recent events show how necessary these are now...
Godspeed and so many thanks to The Good Ship, Saga Ruby.

Is her AIS still showing her as Oasis instead of Oasia ?
