ms Koningsdam and Nieuw Amsterdam in Port Everglades November 11, 2018

Recommended Posts

November 11, 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the armistice to end what was then called "The Great War".  Whether you call this day Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, or Veteran's Day, it is the time to give special recognition to all the people who have served in the military.

 

November 11th brings six cruise ships to Port Everglades.  Koningsdam will be at Pier 26 (Port to) from 0430-1700.  She is embarking on a 10-day Southern Caribbean Seafarer cruise.

Cruise season in full swing, it's not just FLL any more. 

 

I plan to be here.

 

I love that you add the in-between sail-ins/sailaways not from FLL. Thanks.

Nieuw Amsterdam just sailing in!

I missed the Koningsdam sail in.  Capt Noel must have had the hammer down!

Missed sail in but plan to be here for sail away. The picture quality is so much better on the Ft Lauderdale cam.

good morning..We're in Ft Lauderdale to board koningsdam!  We are on a delayed embarkation schedule due to a USCG inspection.... the ship has just returned from Europe.   Boarding is supposed to begin at 1pm with those of priority and for uppermost decks, then deck 8 at 1:30, etc until main deck at 3pm.  I am expecting a departure later than the scheduled 5pm.

Our informal M&G is planned for aft right after muster drill, so the roll call might be there for sailaway.  I forgot to bring my flag, and shame on me on Veterans Day!  Remembering all the veterans today including my WW2 dad,  my navy career son, my Iraq war army son and my 2X Iraq deployed marines godson.  Blessing to all those serving at peace and in harms way.

Something must be going on at pier 21 - this is the 3rd time in a week that a ship originally assigned there [I check a week out] has been assigned somewhere else. It started with Zuidy last Sunday..

Majesty of the Seas and Caribbean Princess have put back their departures so we now have three ships scheduled for 1700.  HAL ships still at 1700 but from what Maureen said, Koningsdam might be later.

I'm going to try to catch some of this in between 'puppy watching'.  Gotta keep your eyes out all the time 😉

 

Kathi, I loved your dedication to the veterans and those that fought for our freedom at the beginning. Lest We Forget ❤️

Both ships are scheduled for 1700, dinner is 1730.  Seems a bit surprising that early seating on Royal Caribbean is earlier than on Holland America.  I'll stay as long as I can.

I'm here now, too.  Let the parade begin!:classic_smile:

 

Since Kathi posted it earlier; it looks most of the parade will begin at 5 pm.

Looks like the first cruise ship to Pier 25 is X Infinity on Thurs the 15th. Look for the pier #26 ship - to be blocked from view - most of the regular season. 😞

Jacqui, do you have a new dog?  Or is Master Marley still considered a "puppy"?  :classic_cool:
