Sunday's Sail-Aways - Six Ships Leaving Port Everglades

It was a fun weekend with yesterday's Harmony sail-away party and today we enjoyed some great sail-aways.  After a long, hot Summer, many ships have left their Mediterranean and Alaskan routes, returning home to South Florida.  This means that instead of sweating for hours to see a ship or two, we enjoyed a six ship sail-away and chatted with many of you on Periscope.  Take a look below as we offer up pictures, video, and stats from the Princess, Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Holland America ships that we watched sail by today.  Also, because you're dying to know, you get to find out what I ate for dinner afterward.
