Default Inspiration Out To Sea

Carnival Inspiration will spend another night at sea. The wind is making it too dangerous to bring the ship in the inlet leading to Tampa. There are a few cargo ships out there too. One poor man went to the port to pick up his girlfriend 3 times today only to be told the ship will not be in until morning. The Port of Tampa was closed to all ships today due to the high winds.

When we sailed Inspiration we couldn't get in to the harbor due to high winds. We were around five hours late docking. It seems like Tampa has a lot of weather issues and you can't due anything about that. The only hard part for us was we missed our flight, but once we booked another one later that day it was no big deal. The weather is crazy all over right now!!

Just read on FB that John Heald posted that the ship will be docking soon and most people will stay on board tonight but some are planning on leaving tonight.

Sure wish the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) had been aboard. What a GREAT bonus to get an extra night or two aboard the fantastic "Inspiration".
I do feel for the folks who missed their flights, and ESPECIALLY for the people who expected to board the ship yesterday morning! What a bummer for them!

It's funny, I sailed Dec14th of last year and she was seven hours late coming in due to weather and the we were late coming back. I'm thinking Dec is not the time to sail out of Tampa.:o

I need a favor!! As most of you know, I collect spoons. I forgot to get one when we were in Tampa last week. If someone is there any time soon, would you pick me up one? I would be glad to pay, and of course postage. Thanks

My cruise partner lives just outside Tampa. I'll can ask her if she would get one and send it to me. I think we have some Tampa people on this board I'm sure we'll get one for you one way or another.

Let us know if you get it. I will hold off calling my friend until I hear something.

Thank you all so much. Laura said she was going to mall, so hopefully she can find one. I will let you know.

I am usually very good about remembering, but with the game, I totally forgot. One of the reasons I love Florida, is you can get them for each town you visit. In Texas you have to settle for one that says Texas.
