Anyone else experiencing an automatic delay on the webcams? i.e. the outbound ship takes a very long time to disappear from the screen

A question for Copper10-8:  when the "tail" of the ship drags in the water like the Princess ship, doesn't that reduce the gas mileage?

I had it freeze up a couple of times but otherwise it has been working ok Copper.

Sorry, you missed her; and about 800 toots!

I noticed that today as well. Our son and daughter-in-law got us a Roku stick for Christmas and I can put the webcams on the tv with it. The tv picture has been different than the one on the computer a number of times today. It is rather nice seeing the ships leave on the really big screen!

That's a better question for ChengKP75, Gerry! I'm lucky I know how to put fuel in my super duper car. A lot of the new ships have that "duck tail" now

No Roy, the Tooterdam was the second ship to go as the Princess ships were all really slow to depart today.  She did us proud though again today.  Just tooting in the rain.

We received one from our son and d-i-l  for Christmas as well; I'd love to know how to put the webcam on our TV.

A Roku stick is used to stream programs on your tv. I went to the ROKU website to program the stick and the PTZ webcam was there. I was able to load it to our stick very easily. It may mean I can cut some programs off my Dish Network as I can stream them free this way - we'll see when I have time to explore it a bit more.

I'll have to check ours; our son set ours up, so I wasn't aware of what he put on it.  I know we have netflix and a bunch of other things. I'll have to check it out a little closer next time I'm watching TV.  Thanks!
