    The Strandcam in Galveston caught a lit-up Carnival cruise ship with the words “We will be back” on Friday night.

    Carnival is among one of many cruise lines to suspend outbound cruises for 30 days earlier this month. Princess Cruises announced a 60-day suspension in global operations from March 12 to May 10.

    The Strandcam is located in the Strand National Historic Landmark District which in the late 1800s and early 1900s, “was the heart of Galveston,” Galveston.com says.
