And it's not even Labor Day weekend.
Coast Guard charts are mean high tide clearance. That ship's probably been through there a thousand (well, maybe less, but...) so there's only one reason...
Giant October Red Blood Hunter Winter Moon! Sucked all the water into the canal!
Worst part is, that's probably what happened. I don't know the tidal time difference between the two sides of the canal, but hey why not?
Next time, I bet they wait an hour or so.
Viking Star was actually brand new, entering service last year in Europe. This is its first voyage to the U.S. It is part of a cruise line that is a sister line to Viking River Cruises, the ones famously advertised during Downton Abbey.
This was Viking Stars 2nd trip through the canal, some friends fishing on the canal saw it last week.
There's no advertising on Downtown Limey! That's on gub-ment funded tee vee!?
