The dream is turning around in the channel at this time. Looks like she is heading back to her dock.

Just posted this too. Could be a Medical Emergency... If that was the case they could have stopped further out at an open dock though.

I'm watching this too! I was wondering if I was seeing things from a different cam. :confused3 Must be an emergency...didn't even make it out the channel.

I'm watching it too. I wonder what it could be so soon after leaving. :confused3 I know they've had to come back for people who were ill, but to come back so soon????

I was checking to see if anyone had posted about this yet. We're watching the webcam also- and DH started freaking when she started to turn.

I hope that everything gets resolved in a timely manner..... and nobody is seriously ill!

What is happening? It is common that they turn around and go back to dock?

Looks like they are sailing out now. That was odd.

We talked to our friends on board, and they hadn't heard an announcement, but were going to dinner.

If it was a Medical Emergency it would have been a lot easier to dock on the channel on the way out. Now they have to turn around again at dock after turning around in the channel.

MaleficentRN
02-05-2012, 04:33 PM
Nope! Heading back!

PizzieDuster
02-05-2012, 04:34 PM
No, they aren't sailing out, it's going back.

D-Dreamer

Looks like they are sailing out now. That was odd.

From my view, it looks like they are still going back to dock. They are about to pass back by Fishlips.

02-05-2012, 04:37 PM
Strange they couldn't figure out something else. It's expensive to do that.

Is there a way to find out??

I'm sure omeone on board will post.

The ship looks great at sunset. Maybe we'll get to see her sail by after dark!

Curious too!
I was shocked to see her turn around in the channel. Hope nobody is seriously sick.

Does the ship seem darker than normal. Power problem? No, I am not trying to start a rumor, just an observation

MaleficentRN
02-05-2012, 04:42 PM
Is that a police car at the dock?

malacajo
02-05-2012, 04:42 PM
They're showing police now??

Guineveree
02-05-2012, 04:42 PM
The webcam zoomed in and we could see a police squad car, but no ambulance.

We just saw this too! I thought the camera had froze or something :) Hope all is well and someone posts soon :)

On a happy note....think they'll play the horns again when they leave the 2nd time?

No she docks aft end first, that's why the turn. We saw the police car too.

D-Dreamer
02-05-2012, 04:47 PM
It does look like they are turning around again, but I think they usually back in to park (or dock). I think they like to be facing out for the next departure.

MouseGrandma

The camera zoomed in on the dock a couple of minutes ago (5:47) and there were police cars under the walkway/boarding area!

Maybe someone can listen to the local fire/EMS. I am in the car and can not steam it to listen

They might have been port security cars from what I saw.

she usually turns around before she docks so that she pulls out going forward...

got a facebook post from someone on board and nothing told to them yet. They were going to dinner.

She is definitely backing up! Hope all is well.

Our friends on board just called and said they announced it is a medical emergency.

Definitely a fire truck on the docks now.

MaleficentRN
02-05-2012, 04:55 PM
Do you see that?! I hope everyone is OK!

Toria

There is a fire truck and an ambulance at the dock.

i hope he's ok.....and it's just a false alarm....
well at least the ship was close to port so they could get him to the hospital quickly...

malacajo

They keep talking about 2 men...Could it be a crime that occured?

disneyholic family
02-05-2012, 05:13 PM
did they say he fell?

02-05-2012, 05:20 PM
the Dream is on her way again,....

wdwlovin'family

It did sound like there was a problem with 2 men and that one "passed out before he fell"

On another site said they heard about someone falling.

There was a fight on the cocoa side, that was the two men call. Totally separate incident.

I thought I heard the word "victim" thrown around there as well.

A lot of that on the scanner-when I listened anyway-was at a bar called coconuts or something like that. Not on the ship. That wasn't a direct feed to what was at the ship, it was just a police scanner, the best I can tell.

When she started turning around, I thought maybe a guest got unruly when he found out that they were showing a replay of Manchester United vs. Chelsea instead of the Super Bowl. :rotfl2:

Does anyone know what REALLY happened? There is nothing in the FloridaToday or Orlando Sentinel or on the tv stations' websites.

We had a medical emergency on our cruise last week but luckily it was prior to our leaving the dock. I feel for the family though that they did not get to take their cruise!

I received first hand reports yesterday why they went back to port.
They forgot the Mickey ice cream bars, and the captain decided that could easily turn into a safety issue (riot), so the decision was made to return to port after consultation with the home office. No tug/boat was willing to haul the 1500 lbs out in the channel to meet the ship and try to offload. To risky. So they averted a potentially serious situation. This is why I book with DCL.

Just saw this on Cruise Critic (from ashley@cruisecritic):

Hey guys,

We've been in touch with Disney, and as you all suspected, it was a medical emergency, and a passenger had to be evacuated. We were told it only set the ship back a couple of hours, so the itinerary shouldn't be impacted.
