All four of Florida's major cruise ports reopened today and the cruise ships lined up to come home, returning just when the cruise lines said they would. Also in that priority line were fuel tankers to resupply gas stations and give all the cruise passengers the possibility of filling their tanks for the drive home. (They will have to line up with local people who are also running on “E.”)
Carnival Conquest had the honor of being the first cruise ship into either South Florida port today.
