Everytime we have gotten off a cruise ship in miami, it has been for a sunday to sunday cruise. We go to south beach, find a cafe on ocean drive for dinner. As we sit there, the cruise ships start to sail out to open water. For a relaxing day, I think I would hang out at south beach till 7 pm or so. I would pick the south end of south beach. There is also a waterway, that the cruiseships sail down, to go out to open water. I always see cars pulled over, and people hanging out on the waterway waving to us. Maybe someone knows exactly how to get to that waterway. I always thought it was kind of a sick torture watching them sail out, especially if you just got off. We have only cruised out of Ft. Lauderdale once, I don't recall too much on it. Hope this helps. Lil' Lori

Yesterday morning at 8 a.m. I was on the West Side Highway. I always enjoy going past the pier and admiring the cruise ships docked.

Unfortunately, as we pasted by, all of the ships were out to sea. Something caught my eye and I looked to my left and to my amazement and joy, the Carnival Miracle was coming back into the New York Harbor. She was gliding, quietly and gentle, hardly creating a wake in the Hudson River. We pulled over just to watch her gloriously pull back into her slip.

As we left Manhattan at 9 p.m. last night, she was gone again. I'm still amazed at the amount of speed they can unload/reload passengers, food and supplies and be off on another voyage.

Seeing the Miracle made my day yesterday. Whatta sight!

Now - if there was only a way we could get a cruise ship up (or down) the Santa Cruz River. . . (this is a joke - there's no water in the river)VBG

I have also seen them in Port in Portland, Maine and it always make we wish that I were on it and sailing away as well. Maine is getting its share of the summer cruise ships in several of the ports here.
