A Florida couple enjoying their canal-side backyard got quite a scare last week.
Bill and Yasmine Todhunter were on their back porch when the ship Celebrity Equinox came within 100 feet of their home. The ship was so close that when the engine quieted down passengers could hear Bill yell at the crew "somebody's going to get fired."
The passengers applauded.

Royal Caribbean released a statement on the incident refuting the accusation that is was not in the proper area. "As Equinox departed on Friday, March 3, she was in her assigned channel at all times under the guidance of specialized local port pilots," the company said. "The ship operated safely and did not put guests or crew at risk. We can also confirm the ship did not touch bottom."
