    Here's a link to my slide show of the photos I took in Key West on our DCL cruise that stopped there in 2005. There's a whole bunch of them showing the sunset from our stateroom veranda on the ship. This is pretty much the same view you'd get from Mallory Square since the ship was docked less than a block from the square.


    Tom :)macwave:... I love that place!)

    Now you`ve done it Tom! [convinced me to re-visit the Keys on our next trip that is....not that I need much persuading. :lol:]
    That Conch Tram Tour sure is the best way to get a good feel for Key West isn`t it?
    Great photos, thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:

    Sure is, Terry! :yes:

    A very nice tour and afterwards, a stroll up and down Duvall Street stopping in the occasional watering hole for a bit of your favorite adult beverage! My kind of day.

    Long live the Conch Republic! :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... searching for my lost shaker of salt!)

    Google maps is showing 5hrs 19mins, Mick. Course you've got to cross over to the Atlantic coast via Alligator Alley to get there.

    Tom :)macwave:... not bad...)

    Cape Coral? That's a long drive from the Keys! :eek:

    Used to be you could get a high speed catamaran from Ft. Myers Beach though. Not sure if they still do that there.

    My problem at the moment is I think I would get bored with the Keys :unsure: Need to look into it more and see what there is to do to keep us occupied for a few days :yes:

    It really depends on where in the Keys you refer to Mick...remember that the Keys stretch from Key Largo on the mainlamd side all the way to Key West, a distance of over 100 miles!

    Bored? In the Keys? :unsure: I don't think so Issy! :D Bored in Jax, definitely but not in the Keys.

    There are loads of things to do there, and some of them you would love, dolphin watching and the like. :yes:
