Watching The Ships Sail & Some Updates

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is to watch cruise ships sail away from their home ports and sail into the Caribbean sun. I think sail away is one of the best parts of cruising, and now you can watch cruise ships sail away every Saturday and Sunday right from your computer, thanks to Port Everglades Webcam, Port Canaveral Webcam, and NY Harbor Webcam. These web cams are all streamed by a company called Port Fever. They even post schedules on their Facebook page so you can make sure you are their for sail away! My favorite is the Port Everglades Webcam because this one has audio, and I like to listen to the captains talking on the radio and the ships blowing their horns! They really are great web cams and you should check them out! Anyway, in other news, I will be out of town the next 2 weekends, this week I am going to DC with some fellow AP US History classmates for a seminar on politics, and then 2 weekends from now I will be heading to Chicago to tape a film for a class project for Theology. I would rather be going on a cruise, but you can’t always be sailing the 7 seas! This past weekend I was looking at some cruises for next summer, and surprisingly I have still not looked at any Carnival Cruises, because I’m starting to get bored with them. I have sailed 5 times with Carnival, twice on Victory, twice on Valor, and once on Freedom, and because they are all basically the same class of ship, it gets boring after a while. I really don’t like the Fantasy class, and the larger ships just don’t really excite me, maybe Magic a little, but not really. So I have started to look at other cruise lines like Royal, NCL, and Princess. I am really excited about the Epic in Europe, the ship is great, the itinerary is great, plus I fly on Continental for free, so it would be super easy to get over there. That’s the other thing too, I’m getting bored with the Caribbean. I have been to almost every Caribbean port, so I have started to look at other destinations such as Europe and Alaska, but my dream destination would be Australia and New Zealand!  I’m not sure why I am so attracted to these ports, but I just think it would be a great cruise! In some more other news, I am excited to announce that in a few weeks, I will be launching the blogs official mobile app available to Android and Apple users! So now you will be able to take Mikey’s Cruise Blog on the go! I will release some more details later on, but for now I will close yet another blog post, I think were around 80 posts now, and almost 5,000 views, I’ll say the blog has really started to grow, please let me know what you think of the blog by voting in the poll down below, because I really want to know what you guys think, so that if I have to improve I can. Thank you all so much for reading the blog, and to all of our supporters, I really appreciate it! Hope you all have a great day, and I will see you on Wednesday!
