I emailed the Port Authority at New Orleans asking for them to push the Cam to the right a bit..... This way we can see the river better & the Fantasy when she comes to New Orleans in Nov......
Just got a email back saying they would see what they can do....

NO! YOU CAN'T HAVE HER. I'm only 30 minutes from Galveston and one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday afternoon is to have a late lunch in Galveston and watch the Conquest set sail. I haven't been able to book a cruise, yet, due to family obligations, but I fully intend to! I know you must miss her. If it helps any, you can watch the Galveston webcam Not much consolation, is it.

Bob, I need a link to that webcam, or directions on how to get there! We booked on the Conquest (May 20,2007)out of Galveston, hoping it would return to New Orleans (we are in Baton Rouge). It looks like our group of 124 people will be on charter buses to Galveston! We have a group of parents and families celebrating our graduating seniors! Don't worry, we have at least a parent for each child (my 18 year old senior will have 8 adults accompanying her). Oh well, at least I don't have to drive. Hopefully we will get a bigger, better ship in New Orleans. I really thought if we passed through this hurricane season unscathed, we would get our big Carnival ship back and 7 day cruises scheduled during the summer! It may happen......I'm patient......I'm waiting.......still waiting!
By the way, DH's company is one of many building the new cruise terminal. He thought it would have been finished in September, but there have been delays...things like doors and elevators being smaller than the openings. They have had to go back and caulk and/or block in openings. He now thinks it will not be ready for the opening day.....it may be operational but he said definitely not complete.
OK, this is a link to many Web Cams in regards to cruise ships.... Home Ports and Ports of Call, & Cams on ships.... After you click on Link, look to left in green strip, yopu will see Gulf Coast near the bottom, then click on Galveston, TX....
