Until a few months ago, my office was on the west side highway in NYC. Leaving work, Id see it going up the hudson around dusk sometimes. Just an awesome sight. Like a skyscraper on it's side going up the river.

I saw something on the news about this just last night....I thought it should have been covered more in the news. I found out 3 days ago from an email from my mom.

She looks extremely top-heavy to me

We were in Ft Lauderdale when it left. It had to turn around and come back to port a few days later because it apparently hit something leaving the Ft Lauderdale port! There was a vibration in one of the drive lines.

Divers had to under and inspect it. The delay ended up costing the cruise one of its scheduled stops.

Allot, if not all received a rebate on the cruise price!

If this it the same cruise.

I went and saw it Wednesday. I work about 10 minutes away. However, Turbosonic was right... Traffic was a nightmare. Even taking the back way in, it took me 40 minutes.
