Anyone on Serenity Ace?

Just got word I'm on Serenity Ace.

I finished prod 12/8, was in transport to port for about 8-9 days, then sat at port for another 10.

Using marine tracker looks like ship gets to Bremerhaven 1/16, leaves for US 1/17.

No info after that...

My car specs are in my sig! I see we are both on the east coast, so that is good. Hopefully 1st or 2nd weekend in Feb. at the latest.

I was just told I'm on the serenity ace as well. Wish it came straight over instead of stopping in Bremerhaven first. Oh well.

Well, the ship is pulling into the port at Vigo, Spain today. It is scheduled to leave Bremerhaven for the US coast on Jan. 17th. Does someone know how long the trip to the US takes and what it's destination port will be? I can't see the itinerary or schedule past Bremerhaven.

What do you have on order?

using other people's "timelines" i think it'll take at sea between 10 days to 2 weeks from Bremerhaven to US Port.

I have no clue either what port it'll hit first in US. i am going to call my CA once it leaves Bremerhaven to see if he has a eta date/port.

Im just guessing here, but lets say it does take 2 weeks at sea, it'll hit US port end of Jan/First week of Feb.

In my mind I'm setting my expectations for like 2nd week of Feb by the time i take delivery. If it's sooner great, but trying not to expect it to be.

I wish we had the whole schedule once it leaves Bremerhaven. My CA is on vacation until Jan. 17th so I can't get any info from him.

Thanks for the replies. I had had a little too much to drink and decided to post. Great idea.

I've got a 335i glacier silver msport with black interior, dark burl wood, prem, tech, PDC and back-up camera, hk, dhp, and 19's ordered. Replacing my 2007 335i coupe. Can't wait!

In 5 1/2 hours the ship will be in Bremerhaven. 15 hours after that it should be headed to the US (finally!!!).

I'm hoping once it's on it's way this way, we can look up an itinerary and find out when exactly it will make it over here.

I doubt it is. I think it possibly makes stops in Halifax, NY, Baltimore, Charleston, and Brunswick.

What I am unclear about is that I thought all vehicles are processed through the VPC. I also read that there are only 2 VPC's on the East coast. I am unclear as to where they are but think NJ and SC. So if all cars must be processed through the VPC, why would they be dropped off at any other ports exept where the VPC's are located?

Can anyone clear this up for me?

On a good note... I think the ship should be out of the port at Bremerhaven by 6pm EST time tomorrow and finally be on it's way!

Well the Serenity is out of Bremerhaven and on it's way. I just assumed my car would stay on the Serenity for the voyage over, but could it have possibly been transferred to another ship bound for the US? Does anyone know for sure that our cars were staying on the Serenity? My CA is out of town, so I cannot ask him currently.

Now that it has left port, http://www.molroro.com hasn't updated the intinerary for the Serenity yet.

Now the Serenity is headed to Amsterdam. I cannot find an itinerary for this ship. I can only now speculate that my car has possibly been transferred to another ship. I was under that impression that ships that left Bremerhaven came straight to the US. (?)
