"Sandy"Affecting Disney Cruises

A couple of our friends are supposed to be boarding Disney Fantasy today for their 7-day cruise. As can be expected, Hurricane Sandy is affecting their voyage, and the voyages of many other cruises, including Disney's. Our friends' boarding time, which was to be between 11:00-11:30 am has been pushed back to 2:00 pm., with the departure time being uncertain. We also have reports the Disney Dream could not dock in the Bahamas or Castaway Cay due to the storm. So the passengers spent several days at sea. We also have reports that the waters at Port Canaveral are still rather choppy, with the Fantasy needing tug boats assistance to dock this morning.

There may be a run on motion-sickness medication at the drug stores around Port Canaveral today, I'm just guessing.


Update: 10/27/2012 3:15 CDT

We heard from our friends, and as they boarded the Fantasy, they were handed a note indicating that their departure will be at 9:00 pm tonight. The itinerary also has been changed and they won't be visiting Costa Maya.

Here's hoping that that's all that get changed.
