Default Does anyone use Google Earth? See the Conquest!

If you have and use Google Earth - the free program where you can view the earth from satellite photos, and zoom in to many locations and see even your house!

http://earth.google.com/

Zoom into Cayman Island. Look at the South west shore.

You can see 3 cruise ships off the coast where they dock. Zoom in.

The Conquest is the middle ship. You can even see the tenders loading or unloading.

Most of the satellite photos used for this program were taken from space about 4 to 5 years ago.

You can also see a Carnival ship in port at New Orleans.

Don’t know which it is. Anyone?

Way cool.

I even found the river in Jamaica we whitewater rafted last week!!!!

Never thought about looking for cruise ships on it. But I do use it for bass tournament fishing.

Happy Cruising to all;
David

Yep, really cool program. I always enjoy looking at Hawaii, and Pearl Harbor with it. It's truly amazing!

Zooming in on the port of miami. I think the one in front would be Imagination with the miniature golf course and the one behind that the Fascination.

It's a fantastic program. We're doing the Liberty from Rome September 4 so I've Placemarked all our ports and the sites in each. Too fun!
