    Norwegian Bliss arrives at pier 66 this Saturday to start the 2024 cruise season.

    • WSB April 3, 2024 (9:31 am)

      We’ll be writing about cruise season in the next day or two.

      Hopefully utilizing shore power and not stinking out the waterfront.

      • WSB April 3, 2024 (11:34 am)

        The port’s website says shore power is expected to be ready at Pier 66 “during” this season – I’m checking to see if that means it’s ready now or will debut at some point later.

    The low bridge has been stuck for a long time now with no boat anywhere in sight.

    • WSB April 3, 2024 (11:30 am)

      The @sdotbridges auto-tweets show it reopened to surface traffic a couple minutes after your comment.
