From this pic and that at:

https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galler...clipse/cat/520

it seems that the floating pier was 'built' between mid-July and early September 2016?

The floating pier was commissioned in 2013, so I would suggest the photo date is incorrect.

I believe the floating pier was paid for by Celebrity, hence it is possible that they control whom uses it. in the picture above the pier can be seen in the retracted position.

Thanks FG86.
Possibly I didn't recognise it in its 'folded up' condition in 2013.

I'm not sure when it was established, however it looked very new.

Date of picture is guaranteed correct. (Koningsdam only came into service this year).

This is a copy of my post at:
https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galler...clipse/cat/520
when I couldn't find this thread.

'FG86
You are absolutely correct as to the date of construction of the floating pier in Geiranger as being 2013. I can't now find the other thread where this was discussed - not that any of this matters I suppose.
Anyway, I was in Geiranger in 2010, 2011 and 2013 when I took a heap of photos.
Based on your advice as to the folding nature of the floating pier 'Sea Walk' I had another look at my photos.
The pier was not there in 2010 or 2011 but in 2013 it was very much there (not that I realised it at the time). It is included in my photo of Vey at:
https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galler...ve-f8y/cat/502
and
https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galler...ranger/cat/505
where its folding nature and restricted use can be seen.
Regards
Geoff (YM)'


I trust that I have not caused too much chaos here. Apologies if I have.

We thrive on chaos YM !! I saw this sea walk all folded up at the dock, but was not aware of what it did, so a very interesting exchange of info.
