So the local port took a hit from Hurricane Irma but is back up and running. With little or no power, no water, it looked like a ghost town there for the first few days. I was curious where all the cruiseships went while Irma blasted through the Caribbean and then up both coasts of FL! So I used my MarineTraffic app to see where they hunkered down.
But the cruiseships are back and I am looking forward to fall weather and the time change. They usually arrive early in the morning and in the summer its too dark out for epic photos. Also fall/winter brings the north winds with low humidity which produces especially clear and colorful skies. Here is a shot of Norwegian Cruise Line's "Breakaway" pulling into Port Canaveral. 🛳🌅
