Happy St. Patrick's Day from Port Canaveral

Good morning,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

That's Explorer of the Seas tied up at Cruise Terminal 1 at Port Canaveral.  This is the same terminal that is the new home of Freedom of the Seas.

I took the picture from the restaurant area that is conveniently within walking distance of the cruise ship.
This is the dockside view of the entrance to Fishlips Restaurant.  The Port Canaveral web cam that you can view by clicking the image of Freedom in my right side bar is located here at Fishlips.
The day before we boarded Freedom of the Seas we had lunch at Fishlips.
Port Canaveral is a combination Cruise Ship and Commercial port.
 The sea food you get here is as fresh as it can be.
 We sat on an upstairs deck where we could eat and take pictures (two of our favorite pass times!).
 When we have sailed out on board Freedom of the Seas we've heard the music from bands using the area in the back of this room.
 No, he's not real, but he sure gets your attention!
 Yes, he's real.  ;)
 And, so is he.

The food at Fishlips was great, but the service was extremely slow.  The restaurant was about 75% occupied and it took nearly an hour for our order to arrive after a fifteen minute wait to place it.  If you plan to eat here on a turn around day while doing a back-to-back cruise you may want to plan accordingly.

All the best,

One thing I really miss about living in Florida is the fresh seafood - it slept in the Gulf last night! (Or in this case, the Atlantic Ocean!) There is just no comparison to the shipped in on ice stuff we get here.
