|Queen Victoria at Port Canaveral|
A VISIT FROM A QUEEN and AMERICAN HAMBURGERS for 3 BRITS
The Queen Victoria recently visited Port Canaveral. It was a pleasure to see one of Cunard's Queens, but mostly to finally meet a friend from England who I had 'known' as a fellow moderator for Cruise Line Fans forum. He and his party paid a visit to KSC, then lunched at the Cocoa Beach Pier. All three were eager to order a "real American hamburger." Once the meals arrived, they took pictures of them, so they could show the folks back home what a real burger looks like!
My plan had been to get a great photo of the Queen putting out to sea. Alas, that was not to be, as we were being assaulted by a wicked thunderstorm at sailing time. The above pic of the ship, berthed at the Royal Caribbean terminal, have to do.
MORE SHIPS? (Yes, please!)
Canaveral Port Authority Chief Executive Officer J. Stanley Payne recently told the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce that he is " negotiating with major cruise line companies" in an effort to increase the number of cruise ships that will home port at Port Canaveral in the future. (Hooray, I say and I wish him much luck)
DISNEY SAILING FULL
The local media reports that the new Disney Dream is SOLD OUT through the fall, and that the line's other ships are booked at 95% of capacity through June, and over 80% through September. So, if you are thinking of sailing on a Disney ship, looks like you'd best plan ahead!
If you are just longing for your next cruise, perhaps for now, you'd enjoy feasting your eyes on some nice cruise related designs and photos of cruise ships from a hand-picked selection of Zazzle photograhers and designers. They're in a little article I've put together featuring wall art, iPad cases, and iPhone cases that should appeal to avid cruisers.
