Multi quotes are easy. On the bottom right of a post is the work quote, and next to it is an icon with quotes on it. when you click it, it turns color, and then click this icon on multiple posts and then click the quote button, all the quotes will appear.

I'm supposed to be working, but of course I am not.....I'm so jittery....
The weather is giving me the heebie jeebies...not that it's going to affect me next week, but it will probably affect the people on the cruise out right now and the sailing next Saturday. Sending everything goes well!

I know, I think hurricane season seems to be lasting longer....last year we were booked on the western cruise, received an email from disney on wednesday before we left saying they were sending us eastern....as hurricane was hitting the western/cozumel area.....we left on the cruise on 10-29-11...I thought most of the hurricanes were done by then

actually, though most of the bad weather is over, the end of hurricane season isn't until the end of November. It's also still very warm. I"m going to hop over to DCL and see what's shaking over there....

Travel AdvisoriesTropical Weather Update

10/25/2012

We are currently monitoring Hurricane Sandy very closely as it moves north through the Caribbean towards The Bahamas.

As this time, the October 25, 2012 Disney Dream sailing will depart Port Canaveral as scheduled. However, given the predicted path of the storm, we realize that the ship's itinerary will need to be altered as the storm passes through The Bahamas.

Unfortunately, the storm is expected to produce tropical storm and hurricane force winds near Nassau and our private island, Disney's Castaway Cay for most of the day on Friday and early on Saturday.

The revised itinerary is as follows:
Thursday, October 25 - Port Canaveral, Florida
Friday, October 26 - Day at Sea
Saturday, October 27 - Nassau (pending weather conditions)
Sunday, October 28 - Port Canaveral, Florida
The safety and security of our guests is always our top priority. If necessary, our Captains are always prepared to alter the ships' courses or itineraries to navigate away from inclement weather.


Nothing about the Fantasy sailing on the 27th. I've seen lots of screaming about the fact they will miss Castaway CAy. I'm sorry, that just makes me mad. READ THE CONTRACT!!! They don't guarantee and you are warned so get off it! Yes, it's disappointing, but Disney cannot control the weather. You still get to cruise, and now it's a surprise! I don't understand people.

I agree, when you cruise its a shot at weather conditions....in 2008 cruised the Western, did not make Grand Caymen, waters to rough to tender....
2011 re-routed to eastern....I wasnt mad, I was glad that we still got to sail...and actually on last years cruise, I think Wally and I had a better time, more sea days plus, (because of last minute) we didnt book any excursions once we got on the ship, we decided to "do our own thing" and we had a great time at St Maarten and Tortola.....then we didnt dock until after 11:00am at Castaway because of some rough water...so we had limited time there...by the time we got off the ship it was noon....it is what it is and deal with it and make the most of what you do have. I'm just sayin
OK, I'm done with that rant!!!

There isn't much we can do about the weather. We went through that last week with Rafael. All we got was a little rain and rough seas.

We missed a port on one of our other cruses due to bad weather. Saved on excursions and got credit for the port taxes. I do feel bad though for those who are on their first DCL and miss CC. It can be very disappointing.

Looking at a Hurricane Tracker, looks like it's going to impact those of us in the Northeast...

Just got a call that they changed the narrator for our candlelight service at EPCOT. Was supposed to be Olivia newton John and now it is Lea Salonga (voice of Jasmine)
