We decided to stay inside the yacht since the weather wasn’t all that great – looked like it might rain and it was getting cool since it was late afternoon.
Inside the yacht, they had those plastic lawn chairs for us to sit on. You could move them around if you needed to. Unfortunately, those chairs do get a little uncomfortable if you sit in them long enough.
The first thing we saw on our cruise was a couple of container ships. You don’t realize how large these ships are until you see them in real life. I pasted two photos of this ship together so you could see the whole thing.
I thought the container ship was large until I saw the largest cruise ship in the world, the Freedom of The Seas! We were fortunate to see this ship pulling out of the harbor as it set out on a cruise. This ship is absolutely massive. It’s longer than a football field. The people waving to us looked really tiny! LOL Roval Caribbean Cruise Line operates the Freedom of the Seas.
Before we headed over to one of the islands in Miami harbor, we got a really nice view of the Miami skyline. I was taking all my pictures from inside the yacht and it was getting dark. You can get an idea of the skyline in this photo – even though it’s a bit shakey.
The cruise gave us a good look at a lot of celebrities homes such as Shaq, Rosie O’Donnell, Dr. Phil, Versace. One of the more famous houses is the El Fureidis Estate better know as the Scarface House. This is the home of Tony Montana from the movie “Scarface”.
Michael and I really enjoyed the tour. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the homes. I’d like to take this tour again during the day – on a sunny day – so I can get some better pictures.
