ms Volendam in Aruba October 13, 2019

Recommended Posts

Many of the HAL ships are heading back to Fort Lauderdale for the winter season.  Volendam left Vancouver on September 25 and will arrive in FLL on October 18.  Today she will be visiting Aruba from 0800-2300.  She is the only ship in port.

 

The PTZtv webcam can be found at https://www.portarubawebcam.com/.

 

Next up:  Zaandam will be in Port Canaveral on the 15th. She will also be our first HAL ship in FLL on the 16th.

Back to warm weather cruising - though still not too busy. 

 

Thanks, Kathi.

I think Volendam will be pretty early.  She has just passed the outermost of the freighters sitting at anchor.

Thanks for posting, I see her on the Marine Traffic map, about 6 miles out.

What is that strange looking thing next to her funnel?

I think it's just decorative but hope Copper10-8 will come around at a more reasonable west coast time.

 

I guess that's it for now.

I forgot it wasn't the normal 1 pm arrival this morning - so I slept right past it. I plan to be here later.

Not sure but I think the forward part of the Volendam is getting a bit darker.

Anyone else out there?  The webcam counter is only 3 viewers.  Not sure I've ever seen it that low.

The counter just went up to 8!  Wow, things are picking up.
