Was out in the Minnow of the Seas yesterday at Naked Island. Always try to catch the cruise ships as they come under the Skyway Bridge. Last cruise was on Inspiration last October so this is as close as I have been to a cruise ship. Waited near the shipping channel and she came under the bridge. Got some good pics but here she is heading out to sea. Was hoping there would be more people by the rail so we could moon them as they went by. I guess the Bon Voyage party was over and everyone was at dinner. It was about 6:30 PM. 8)

Hey Dave,
It kind of looks like the ship is mooning you!

I cant really get a good perspective on how close to the ship you are but just be careful about those security zones they have around the ship as it enters and leaves the port. The Coast Guard can get a little overzealous when enforcing them.

Yes, I know. I was well away from it. In fact, there was a Coast Guard boat Sea Fox coming while I was out there so kept a little extra distance.

Hey Dave, Nice pictures of Legend leaving Tampa for 7 wonderful days cruising on May 24th.

I was on the ship at the time you were taking pictures. Sorry I was not on deck to see you, actually I was at the Lobby Bar having an adult beverage. 8)

Thanks for posting pictures.

Cool! It is always fun to watch the ships come under the bridge. Especially this time of year when it is daylight. This last Sunday I had three young kids onboard and they got a big kick out of waving to the people on deck and they waved back to us. On the 24th there did not seem to be nearly the number of people out on deck. It was not as nice a day though either.
