April 8, 2017. Three ships were scheduled to leave the Port of Tampa. The MS Amadea was the second ship (bottom blue diamond). This is a smaller cruise ship that holds 600 passengers and is operated by Phoenix Reisen. After leaving Tampa, the MS Amadea's next port was Key West, then Miami and Nassau. The cruise ship was finishing a 20 nights / 21 days, one-way from Puntarenas, Costa Rico to Nassau, Bahamas.
The first ship to leave around 4 PM was the Brilliance of the Seas (blue boat icon), The third ship was the Rhapsody of the Seas, but there was a missing crew member. This delayed the ship's departure. Thus, I was only able to photograph two cruise ships going under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. I was set up at the Fort DeSoto's southernmost point. .
