3000 people on the port cams and 2000 on the beach cam....I don't think I've ever seen the numbers this high.  No wonder the cams keep crashing. 

And 6000 on Port Everglades webcam.  Waiting for the ships...

I have lost all my cameras, too. But according to Vesselfinder the pilot boat has merged with the Zaandam and they are one.

Webcam has been stopping and starting for me.  Maybe too many people watching?  Great sight right now with the Z & R on the Beach Cam.  🙂

Wow, this is weird!  Just now my phone rang.  HAL on the caller ID.  It was my dear PCC (same one for 10 years) calling about my cancelled cruise.  I just yelled into the phone..."Hang up and get on the webcams.  Zaandam and Rotterdam are coming in right now!!  Talk to you later!".  Yeah, seriously.

Priorities!

Thank you.  Special prayers for them.  I just can't think how they must feel.

CNN had a recording of Zaandam captain Ane Jan Smit announcing that they were cleared to proceed to the pier.  Probably jumped the viewers on the webcams.  m--

I know all about it...…..they were denied entry.


Not the United States finest hour.  Several years ago a movie was made of the incident  “Ship of Fools.”
