I wish I could tell where my ship was. There is no way to tell where my ship is that I can find.

Anyone know where the Princess VII is? It is supposed to be going through the Canal today. I have the live webcam up at the Canal to see if I can spot it going through.

Here is the link if anyone is interested http://www.pancanal.com/eng/photo/camera-java.html

Today was a long day... I just sit around doing nothing half the time. (I'm an IT intern...) I can't imagine how it's going to be when MY car comes in. Oh well at least I get paid to just surf the internet and do nothing...

Princess VII is actually arriving at 4:00 AM Central Time tomorrow and transiting the canal on The morning of the 27th, Friday...

More info here...
http://www.boydsteamship.com/daily_traffic_report.htm

If anyone has the paid tracking service from vesseltracker you could probably see her out in the ocean not too far away. Since her cruising speed is only 21.8 knots, she is probably less than a couple hundred miles away at this point.

Here is some more info on her if anyone cares:

Hey guys, I was on the Asian Chorus as well. Did ED the last week of May. How do you know your delivery date? I called my CA yesterday and he said he didn't know anything other than the car was at the VPC. He said it usually just arrives randomly at the dealership with little notice... I'm in MD, any ideas when I should get my car? The wait is getting harder and harder...

In MD you should get your car shortly, i'm picking up mine in NH today, so it isn't exactly that close to port. Your CA should know when a truck should pick up your car and drop it at the dealership.
