I think the people quoted were Broward County commissioners.

She has slowed down now, only going 11.3 knots.  And Rottie is through and will be hurrying to catch up!

 

And now Zaandam is going 7.8 kenos and Rotterdam 11.8 - speeding up!

 

I hope someone will be up late and take some screen shots.  It's bedtime for me.  It has been an exciting evening.

Zaandam is the blue arrow at the top of this image.  MarineTraffic said 17.7 knots, destination US PEF.

 

Rotterdam was still in transit here just leaving the last of the Agua Clara locks. Can't see her when zoomed this far out but she's in that multicolored bubble snake at the bottom of the image.

ETA: Zaandam is 19.6 knots now.

If you use the filters in MarineTraffic  to show passenger vessels only you can see them both.

Zaandam at the top of this image, Rotterdam at the bottom.

I just checked, and it says destination for Zaandam is San Antonio. Can anyone confirm?

This is the best news of the day -- Zaandam and Rotterdam going through the new locks heading towards Florida.

 

Hopefully they will be able to dock in about 3 days.

Yeah it says San Antonio in Chile, which means the bridge crew hasn't updated it yet - otherwise they've made a mistake crossing the canal 😃

Some kind of an echo weirdness from a different ship?  It's changed several times between US PEF and CL SAI which is San Antonio, Chile.
