It looks like common practice for that ship we we're looking at that ship on the 24th looked pretty beat up .as we looked we all commented on it .
opinions from people who obviously have no idea what they're talking about.

So let's see...Carnival (left first) pulls away from dock, does a complete 180 NEAR the dock and departs. No problem. Royal Caribbean ship (second to depart) pulls away from the dock, goes straight out. No problem. Silver Spirit "yacht" pulls away from dock, maneuvers like the Captain is drunk, almost slams into dock Carnival ship was berthed at then slams and bounces against original pier when returning. Winds or not, departure could have been delayed due to ANY weather conditions that could cause a safety issue to their "boat". Doesn't look good for the Captain.

Is there any video of inspections and the ship leaving again?
