Morning David,
I missed her arrival this morning but I'll also be watching her leave tonight. I believe the Conquest is leaving earlier now instead of the 6:00PM departure that she normally had.
I bet it was great watching her arrive!

I posted yesterday asking if the Conquest was leaving at 4pm now or still at 6. Never got an answer, guess I will find out when I watch her go.

Default What's up?

Have you guys seen the Galveston web cam? The conquest is backwards. Her "aft" is showing.

I can't say for certain but, I think she is docked backwards because of the heavy fog this morning. The ships turn in that same spot, just to the right of the Conquest and if there is any small boat traffic then the small boat could be hit by the Conquest or whichever cruise ship is turning around at that point. By coming in like she did, that potentially avoids any mishaps.

Just my 2 cents

sounds logical. I wish the harbor house would have one of the camera's that followed the movements. That would be really cool!

Tex, yesterday I was able to watch the Elation come in and do her "dance" as she made her turn and slid in to the dock. I also watched it from the Grand Princess' bridgecam. That way I had two perspectives of it and it was really cool! 8)
