Just finished watching the Dream embarkation! (LOL)
 
Okay, first off, no offense to avid Carnival or RC cruisers. I love RC but still found this quite entertaining...

This evening while watching the Port Canaveral Webcam, I couldn't help but notice the differences [in sail away celebrations] between the Carnival Sensation, RC's Freedom of the Seas & the Disney Dream.

Carnival Sensation - About 1 out of 30/40 people were actually waving & a handful of kids seen (including one that was laying her head on the railing! :lmao:) Nothing seemed to be going on topdeck...

RC Freedom of the Seas - Beautiful ship! About 1/2 the guests seen were waving, had a few homemade signs, kids waving, dancing topdeck. Very lively!

And last but certainly not least...
Disney Dream- Almost everyone was waving :rotfl:
colorful lights going, jumping & dancing topdeck, lots of kids AND adults enthusiastically waving... the AquaDuck was even running, with guests waving through that!

:rotfl2:

Disney has the prettiest ships and the happiest cruisers! :cutie:

This was my first time watching the Webcam, I definitely want to watch this again next week!

I know exactly what you mean. I usually watch every Sunday and notice the differences.. it just shows how Disney gets the party going as soon as you board!!

If you watched the Disney Dream today, then you saw my daughter and her fiance waving to us as we watched the webcam sitting here in NY.

I wish I was there with them!

(She was on her phone talking to us, jumping up and down while waving a scarf. BF was beside her with both arms up in the air. Honestly never expected to see a close-up of them.)

When is the best time to jump on the webcam for PC and watch? I seem to keep missing the departures and arrivals, lol.;)

I watch Saturday AND Sunday, starting at 4:45pm eastern. I love watching them set sail!

I noticed that when we were on the Fantasy last year, the Carnival cruise ship (not sure which one) just chugged off quietly, no fanfare, nothing.
Disney just take it to a whole other level pixiedust:

I saw her too, I just thinking what a smart person to have a wave a scarf so people would notice her. How fun :thumbsup2

YES, :yay: that was her!

About 10 minutes before, she sent us a picture text of where she was standing and the scarf she would be waving. I thought, Oh honey, we'll never be able to find you, we'll just be able to see just the ship.

When she called and was asking, "Can you see me," we were like, "No... no... no... YES!

It was exciting to see them off. Technology is cool.

She gets a 7 day vacation, and we got her Morkie for a week. Cute, but he's a PITA, he's so spoiled!

I linked it in my OP ;)
It pans out while ships are docked, but on their way out of the port it zooms in on the top deck!

Very cool, thanks!

There is a picture of your daughter on their Facebook page showing her waving her green scarf, lol.
