I enjoy tracking my favorite ships on seascanner and I've been surprised how much the ships are moving around right now without passengers. Since last dropping off the passengers in NYC the NCL Gem went to Nassau. Since then it hasn't sit still for more than a few days. Recently it's been in and out of Jacksonville harbor several times for a day or two. Today tracking shows it zig zagging off the coast.
Does anyone know the reason they keep these ships moving around from one port to another? When the Gem was in Nassau the cruise ship piers were full. A week later they were completely empty. I then noticed some of them lined up, apparently moored, off the FL coast. A few days later they were gone.
