Port Of Tampa closed due to suspect package
 
Passengers checking in for a 4-night cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Jewel Of The Seas had to evacuate the terminal and pier area this morning because of a suspect package. A pallet being readied for loading onto the ship caused bomb-detection dogs to 'hit' on the pallet. No word on when guests will be allowed to continue check-in and board. No guests had been boarded when the alert was sounded.

It looks like nothing was found and people were allowed back in to board around 3:30 p.m.
