    Dan Hill. Club Med 2 is a five-masted computer-controlled staysail schooner owned and operated by Club Med and operated as a cruise ship. It combines the power of seven computer-operated sails with more traditional diesel-electric power, having four diesel generators that power two electric motors.

    17/18jul18-- Dan Hill, A long way from home is right. Which begs the question, WHY? is DDH 976 in this port. Seems this warship was on the west coast of Africa ( about half way top to bottom ) dealing with South Korean fishermen being held hostage. My Assumption - the ship has completed that mission and is headed home. DDH 976 's armament is impressive ( if you like that kinda stuff ).

    The visit served to enhance U.S.-Malta relations as the two nations work together for a stable, secure and prosperous European region.
    The port visit was the first for Carney during its fourth forward-deployed patrol in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations. The patrol’s purpose is to support U.S. national security interests, demonstrating a continued commitment to the collective security of the European region.
    “We are thankful for the hospitality of our Maltese hosts,” said Cmdr. Peter Halvorsen, commanding officer of Carney. “Valletta is a beautiful city with a vibrant culture and rich history. It’s also an honor for the crew to be the first U.S. Navy ship to moor here since 2014.”
    While in Valletta, the crew enjoyed liberty and were able to see some of Malta’s historical and cultural treasures, partake in in a friendly soccer match with the Maltese military, enjoy cultural exchanges, and participate in two community relations projects that supported the local community.
    Carney’s crew opened the ship for tours and hosted a reception on the flight deck on behalf the U.S. Ambassador to Malta, Kathleen Hill. Guests included Maltese governmental officials and ambassadors.
    While moored in Valletta, Carney also conducted personnel exchanges with the Irish National Service Ship L.É. Niamh.
    After departing Malta, the Carney conducted an underway exercise with patrol boats of the Maritime Squadron of the Armed Forces of Malta (AFM). Carney’s view, board, search and seizure team paired up with AFM members to simulate a non-compliant boarding of the Carney, providing both teams with a realistic boarding scenario. During the evolution the teams successfully searched various ships’ spaces and conducted training to practice detaining personnel. The bilateral exercise also included force protection drills that trained the crews on how to react to imminent, sea-borne threats.
    U.S. 6th Fleet, headquartered in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied and interagency partners, in order to advance U.S. national interests and security and stability in Europe and Africa.

    The sun is born ... I love to see the sun rise on the horizon of the sea, early in the morning because in Chile, where I live, the sun rises in the hills and the sunset is in the Pacific Ocean. totally opposite. Simply beautiful!

Grand Harbour - Valletta

The stunning Maltese capital of Valletta (Il-Belt Valletta), gem of Mediterranean and one of the most beautiful Baroque jewels of the world, was considered one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites in Malta for its extraordinary heritage conservation.

A visit to Valletta is a real trip to the past, exactly when the Knights of St. John (later Knights of Malta) started its construction in 1566 on the rocky Mount Sciberras under Grandmaster Jean Parisot de la Valette who founded this fortress city that bears his name; thanks to their fortifications and massive bastions the knights won the bloody siege of 1565, part of this architectural treasure had fortunately survived World War II and natural disasters, today it is the main tourist attraction of a city with a large concentration of historic areas and magnificent views. As a charming open-air museum, Valletta is rich in ancient masterpieces that can be experienced while enjoying simultaneously the rhythm of a modern life, among its chaotic attractions, one of the safest and largest natural harbours in Europe, Grand Harbour (Il-Port il-Kbir), a great economic development opportunity; thanks to its very favourable position in the heart of Mediterranean, it originally represented an ideal place of refuge with waters deep enough to anchor, firstly occupied by Phoenicians who landed here, and later unsuccessfully controlled by Napoleon, under the British Military was massively fortified and improved with dockyard facilities, a wider entrance, harbour amenities and a greater anchorage partially destroyed during the world wars; completely restored, the multi-purpose Grand Harbour is today the center of the maritime activity of the whole island, a prestigious landmark of Malta and the premier destination for yachts, superyachts and cruise ships coming from all over the world.

Grand Harbour offers spectacular panoramic views as surrounded by a quantity of stunning inlets and ancient treasures such as Fort Saint Elmo (Il-Forti Sant Iermu), Fort Ricasoli (Forti Rikazoli), the picturesque village of Kalkara (Il-Kalkara), the fortified Three Cities of Vittoriosa (Birgu), Cospicua (Bormla) and Senglea (L-Isla) and not so far the stunning Barakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq); it welcomes million cruise passengers every year and give them at their arrival a first glimpse of a very versatile center known as Valletta Waterfront; as a multi-purpose area, it is a real landmark, one of the most frequented meeting points of Valletta, a high quality entertainment destination become increasingly popular for tourists and locals, a complete mix of retail, dining, leisure experiences and shopping along the water's edge where also festivities and outdoor themed events take place all year round. Originally a simple pier and a place where merchants used to unload their wares, this wonderful Baroque masterpiece was built by the Knights of St. John's Grand Master Manuel Pinto de Fonseca in the 18th century, over the years it was fortunately renovated and today is moreover a famous cruise and ferry terminal also providing efficient and affordable transport services within the Grand Harbour and neighbouring areas; Valletta Waterfront is certainly worth a visit, a simple stroll along the promenade either day or night with a view on its panoramic beauties we'll be a marvelous experience.
