We are booked on the 3 night cruise on Thursday. We are leaving home today for vacation. If the cruise is delayed--I'm thinking the previous cruise might not be able to dock--how will they let us know if we're en route? Is there a way we can find out on the road?

If we can't board until Friday, will they run a 2 night cruise? It seems like a lot of money for a 2 night cruise.

In the past they have sometimes docked at a different port and provided transportation from Port Canaveral to the new port. A few years ago we were diverted to Port Everglade at the end of a cruise. Disney had buses take us back to Port Canaveral or to WDW or to Orlando airport - whichever was your destination.

I would take the 1-800 number with you and call on Wednesday evening or maybe Thursday morning. They will let you know the plans.

We were in that same situaion when the magic had to go to port everglades, except we were the group hoping to board! The 800 number will be VERY busy and hard to get through. The kept very up to date information posted on the website. It was quicker for us to go to the Kinko's and get online to read the current update than it was to try to get through on the phone. Good luck!

HI Jenny -

We live here in Central FL, just 30 minutes from the Port (but used to live in Newtown, PA!). As of now, the eye of the storm is due to pass near us early morning Wednesday, exit out to sea just below the port and curve back up through Jacksonville. It's hard to say exactly what our weather conditions will be - Fay's track has changed so many times. As a PP mentioned, if necessary, the incoming cruise may need to dock down in Port Everglades, or even be delayed. If your cruise gets shortened, DCL has been know to offer pretty generous discounts and perhaps even nice incentives to rebook another cruise.
I would definitely stay in touch with DCL, via phone and internet. Maybe call them this morning and give them your cell phone number. And, of course, the DIS boards are usually the most helpful!
We also went through this on our Sept 2004 cruise!

Happy Sails!

Yes, we got a good rebooking discount (something like 25% off?) and ended up rebooking for January 2005 instead. We were able to still use our airfare in September 2004 and ended up visiting WDW in between those two major hurricanes.

I agree, you need to check with DCL. From the Port Canaveral website:

Because of weather conditions related to Tropical Storm Fay, operations at Port Canaveral will shut down at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, August 19, 2008.
The Canaveral Port Authority expects to resume normal operating hours and re-open the administration building at 8 a.m. on Thursday, August 21, 2008.
For assistance, please contact Port Control at 321-783-3770.

And from local TV news:
The U.S. Coast Guard has ordered Port Canaveral to "condition Yankee," which means it can no longer accept vessels over 500 tons until Tropical Storm Fay has passed.

Canaveral officials have also decided to shut down the port for Tuesday and Wednesday, a spokeswoman said.

The orders will prevent the Norwegian Spirit cruise ship from making a scheduled port-of-call stop at Canaveral tomorrow. Port officials say intends to divert to the Bahamas.

In addition, two cargo ships carrying automobiles will not be able to make their regularly scheduled deliveries tomorrow. A port spokeswoman said Canaveral expects the ships will wait at sea before unloading on Thursday.

wow... they usually dock WAY before 8 am. I feel bad for both those getting on/off - I'm sure fay caused a lot of motion sickness, and given some of the big feeder bands coming off the keys, I wonder if they were even able to dock at CC or Nassau?

I just got off the phone with my sister who is down in our condo at the Pier on Cocoa Beach and she said it was very scary last night. They are now at the far side of the eye, but this storm is moving very slowly. The winds have died down quite a bit, and the rain is now coming down straight rather than sideways. Last night they never got higher than 50 mph, but right now the surf is coming in and the waves are breaking over the pier.

It is supposed to hook back in at Flagler Beach today and head to the Gulf - this storm is going to be with us for a while more this week.

She doesn't know about port schedules as they can't leave the building yet. They did open the hurricane shutters this past hour. But it still is not safe to go out and about.

Hope this helps give a glimpse into what's going on down there. But I am no help as to Thursday.

Thanks for posting.....may it be better for you than it was for us when Hurricane Jeane required the Magic and Wonder to leave from Ft. Lauderdale.

Hopefully DCL has worked out most of the issues we encountered. It was GREAT once we were on the ship....but the getting there left a lot to be desired. Makes us appreciate our beautiful, efficient terminal at Port Canaveral.

Tropical Weather Update


As of August 20, 2008

We are currently monitoring Tropical Storm Fay very closely.

Tropical Storm Fay has stalled along the eastern portion of Florida near our homeport of Port Canaveral and its path is uncertain.

For this reason, Port Canaveral has been closed to vessel traffic by the Port Authority and the August 21, 2008 sailing of the Disney Wonder will set sail on its 3-night itinerary from Fort Lauderdale, Florida — Port Everglades.

Other than the departure port change, we do not anticipate any additional changes in the upcoming Disney Wonder itinerary. Transportation will be provided for guests with transfers and those arriving by private vehicle at Port Canaveral. It is important that guests still park at our terminal in Port Canaveral as the ship will be returning there on Sunday, August 24, 2008.

The Disney Magic is currently on a 15-night Panama Canal voyage and is scheduled to return to Port Canaveral on Monday, September 1, 2008.

The safety and security of our guests and crew members is always our top priority, and we monitor the weather very closely. If necessary, our Captains are always prepared to alter the ships' courses or itinerary to navigate away from inclement weather.

Well, I don't sail until 9/1 on the Magic, but I'm following the tropical weather very closely! We August/September cruisers have to do that!

And here's hoping we get to leave from our beautiful terminal at Port Canaveral!

It's just the chance you take cruising during the height of hurricane season. We have cruised 3 times in September, and we only had one time that there was a storm off the coast of Florida, and we thought we might have to go to Port Everglades. After that, everything was fine. Just stay flexible!

No big deal.. :)

(Although I just looked and realized where Port Everglades is... 3 hour bus trip.. with kids? yuck :)

I would guess Wonder wouldn't leave port till after 5pm would it? if it's waiting on all of us from MCO/WDW or Canaveral...

I think next Disney trip's gonna have to be in July :)

I've also edited the thread title so hopefully nobody misses it. Sorry to hear.

However:

We did this for a cruise two years ago now. It wasn't horrible. They bring the entire port staff including porters down to Port Everglades. They use the same buses as they do the transfers, and others from Mears that are very similar. They also did a stop halfway at a very nice rest area to give the kids a chance to get out for a little bit. It just took a little extra time and I'd imagine they'll be late sailing out making sure they got everyone.

DCL when I spoke to them did back up what you say:

Wonder will sail at 8pm.. from PE. [as a side note, that's when our Palo reservations are.. hmm]

Last bus from PC down to PE evidently leaves at/or around 4pm, per the person I was talking to..

Expected boarding to start around 2pm

Park/show up at PC as usual...

They were bus'ing everyone of their normal staff down to PE today.. it was kinda funny, how she said, 'yeah, things are kindof a mess here too at DCL'

We ran into this in 2004 with Hurricane Jeanne and we had to leave out of Port Everglades on a shortened 7 night. My only advice is to BE PATIENT and understand that DCL will do everything they can to get you out safely and quickly, but it doesn't always go picture perfect! We ran into alot of ugliness from very upset passengers who were just :mad: MAD:mad: , but just remember to keep your eye on the prize...you will make it on the ship and have a wonderful cruise just the same:goodvibes

Just wondering: Did DCL do anything special for everyone due to the changes? (stateroom credit? extra discount off next cruise? etc.?) Not that there was anything they could do about it -- but I was just curious.

It's an honest question and I will give an honest answer. Yes...DCL offered passengers a 40% refund plus an onboard credit (I forget how much but over $100) and a 25% discount on a future cruise). Now that is not to say that they will again. I am just saying that is what was offered in 2004.

We were on the same cruise as Two-Foxes who posted above and it was nightmare. Our bus broke down enroute to Ft. Lauderdale and we spent an extra hour in the hot sun waiting for a another bus. The terminal in Ft. Lauderdale was complete chaos...endless lines and confusion and it was very frustrating to see so many people screaming at DCL workers....they were out of sorts as well. They were doing the best they could but it was still a mess.

This time things may be a bit smoother at Ft. Lauderdale. I personally think DCL did the right thing by offering guests the refund, discount and OBC. It placated a lot of raw nerves.......the refund was offered to us before we even encountered all the chaos at Ft. lauderdale. DCL was being proactive in offering the discounts, refunds.......many people cancelled that cruise and were given full refunds and the 25% future discount. If you decided to still cruise with them, but out of Ft. Lauderdale they offered the discounts, refunds and onboard credit. We felt it was fair since our cruise was only 4.5 days instead of 7.

40% off our cruise and a $300 stateroom credit and 25% off a future cruise (which had alot of restrictions). But please keep in mind, we were stuck in a hotel ball room for HOURS at port everglades, then at the actual for port another hour or two at least. It was not a pretty sight. Our cruise was also shortened from a 7 night to a 5 night (we actually left after midnight, so 4 3/4 night;) ) The port was double booked, literally. We had to wait for the Wonder to go through their processes unloaded passengers (that cruise was extended if I am not mistaken) before the Magic could even dock to let us on. The Magic had been set out to sea with no passengers, just crew, for a couple of days. I believe we experienced the worst of the worst, as did DCL, and DCL reimbursed us above and beyond my expectations. I was just happy we had trip insurance:) and it was cool to see the Wonder and Magic at the same time!

I would not use this experience as any frame of reference for what DCL may or will do for future situations, as we had a severely delayed cruise, (by days, not hours) and a mess at Port Everglades.

Why would they have to?

because they are good at customer service and we were given a 4.5 day cruise instead of a 7 day cruise and we had to ride out a hurricane in a hotel room for two days.

They were proactive and wanted to keep their guests happy.

Guess times likes these answer the age old question: "Is trip insurance important/worth it for my cruise?" :sad2:

Yes, I am worried that I won't make it into MCO on Friday for our vacation BUT I sleep a lot better knowing that the extra $40 I spent to insure my trip will cover me for whatever may go wrong.

Sending prayers and pixie dust to all of you that are trying to get to the Wonder tomorrow. Safe travels and happy cruising!

We were on that crusie as well, what a crazy time those weeks were in '04. But through good attitudes and some divine intervention, we had one of the most amazing trips ever, it's still one of our favorites! Plus with the refund and discounts, my DW and I went for the full 7 days that following January with out paying anything out of pocket!

Why would they have to?

I asked the question simply to see what happened. I'm very impressed that Disney really went above and beyond in customer service on something that was out of their control. How many times have you been on a plane that was cancelled/delayed due to weather and the most you get is a bag of pretzels since it was "an act of God"? Most of the time, the airline workers aren't even sympathic or helpful to your situation. It's good to know that Disney still considers customer service and goodwill a priority.

We thought they were awesome that time, and keep in mind at that point the residents of Fl, DCL workers included, had just been hit with their FOURTH hurricane in 6 weeks. Our bus driver had just gotten power back after a couple of weeks without, when Jeanne hit. So they had to work through the situation when their homes and lives were very much disrupted. As two-foxes said, some passengers were down right ugly. Sure things didn't go smoothly, but we were on vacation, not worrying about getting a roof back on what was left of our house.

Today's situation is very different and I wouldn't expect DCL to offer any kind of compensation or credit, but you never know. The cruise isn't being altered that much and it is totally out of their control. Hopefully people flying in can make it. I know in 04, two our party had DCL air, they changed their flights 3 times and ultimately flew them to Miami rather than Orlando.

We did a 3-day Wonder in September of 2004 and left out of Port Everglades due to Ophelia. For that cruise, we did not get any refunds, credits...
But, we did get our full three night cruise in, although two of the nights most of the guests were green (16 foot swells). Due to the transportation issues, we, understandably, did leave very late from Port Everglades.
Still had a great cruise!!:cool1: Plus and added adventure for no extra charge.

So, here are some photos of the ship in port, Maybe someone that is on it would like them.
I wish I had known it was sailing at 8:00 PM, I would have waited longer, I waited until after 7:00 PM and I still saw busses pulling in, so I left. It was strange seeing DCL busses on I-595!!

I live in West Palm and really wanted to get down to Ft. Lauderdale today and see it sail. Sadly I was at work till 8 pm so I missed it. Oh well I will be on board in 4 weeks so I guess I will just have to wait till then to see a Mickey Boat!!!

Thanks for the pictures! I love that ship.

Looking forward to hearing from those that sailed yesterday. Hope they are all having a magical vacation!
