Grandeur of the Seas visits Port Canaveral - November 4, 2005

This is a map of Port Canaveral, Florida. I've added the waypoint coordinates recorded with a Garmin GPS V receiver in November 2005 as Grandeur of the Seas neared the end of her nine day cruise to the Western Caribbean. The points are plotted from about an hour before arriving from the south, to about an hour after leaving to the north. If you zoom in close to the actual pier, you will see quite a bit of zig- zagging in the plot. I think this is because I forgot to turn off the tracking function while I was walking around on deck and briefly ashore.

I've also added markers for two points of interest in the area. The marker to the north is directly in between the two Space Shuttle Launch pads, 39A and 39B, at the Kennedy Space Center. You can clearly see why someone lucky enough to be on a cruise ship docked in Port Canaveral during a shuttle launch would get an excellent view. The marker to the south is the world famous Ron Jon surf shop! No visit to Cocoa Beach is complete without stopping by to pick up another tee shirt for the collection.
