Brilliant writeup of this news story - thank you! Excellent photo, too - very atmospheric.

Has there been any further notable news since 22 November?

Ah, yes.

One bit I wasn't 100% clear about - the Convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic allows the first port of call to decide that disembarkation is not possible, as the Spanish government did?

From what I can tell, the Spanish government claimed that they weren't the first port of call - as the original destination of the ship was Southampton, Southampton was the official first port of call and any deviations made before Southampton are invalid.smiley - shrug I'll add a smiley - footprintssmiley - musicalnote

Complicated...

So it was because the IMO guidance was open to interpretation rather than despite the guidance being open to interpretation?
