CRUISIN' JACKSONVILLE

Jacksonville's downtown riverfront was dominated by the Silver

Cloud Thursday, the third cruise ship in three weeks to dock

near The Jacksonville Landing.

The 516-foot vessel carried 501 passengers and crew members on

eight decks.

The cruise, a tour of colonial cities along the Eastern

Seaboard, began in New York last week. The vacationers spent a

day in the Jacksonville area, touring historical sights in St.

Augustine and Amelia Island.

The Silver Cloud left Thursday for Nassau, Bahamas.

601 W. State St.

People of minority and mixed lineage who develop leukemia,

aplastic anemia or other blood diseases tend to have the most

difficult time locating a marrow match.
