The captain just cancelled castaway cay

They just made the announcement. Because of the hurricane no CC for us. I would rather a nice safe day at sea than a rainy windy day at CC.

That's the attitude to have! We missed CC on our last cruise, the Panama Canal cruise in Jan. 2011. While disappointed, we had a great day at sea! I'm sure you will too. Enjoy your cruise :-)

My Mom and Dad are on the 10/20 Fantasy cruise as well. I know they will be disappointed and feel somewhat jinxed. They sailed on the Magic in February 2010 when the winds kept it from leaving CC (or enjoying the island). Their next cruise which is supposed to include CC is the Dream on 8/4/13, so if they are a jinx, you have been warned! -- Suzanne

DW and I were on the same cruise. It was a bummer that with all the attempts that the captain made, he just couldn't make it happen. The wind was really howling and it was impressive watching the waves crashing against the break water at CC.

We also had a great time with the day at sea. The CM came up with plenty of other things to do during that day.

Thank you for that. You had me scared to death! Right now the official web site has mentioned changes for the Dream, but nothing about the Fantasy.

So hypothetically speaking, what recourse do you have if there is a schedule change, high wind warnings, hurricane warnings etc. With travel insurance could you cancel and reschedule? Just wondering as I know CC seems to be the big draw for some on a Disney Cruise.

You have no recourse when there is a schedule change. Your contract with DCL specifically states that the line has the authority to change ports of call and routing as they see fit. As a practical matter they do not randomly make changes unless for the safety of their passengers.

Oh, I hope that doesn't happen on our January cruise. That is one of the main reasons we are doing the cruise. The only other DCL cruise we've been on was the MR cruise on the Wonder. I understand that things happen though, so if it happens to us, we'll try to make the best of it.

This happened to us although we were able to swap our day at sea with our CC day. It worked out well and like OP said, it is very difficult to enjoy anything outside under a hurricane and 100+ MPH winds and rain.

The contract you sign actually stipulates that you don't even have to cruise on a DCL ship or actually reach any port.

As of earlier today, Castaway Cay is cancelled for the 10/25 sailing for the Dream as well.

I am SO sad about this as I secretly trained to run the CC5K with my family, and even made T-shirts saying "Mom's First 5K" and now it's not going to happen.

I wonder if they've ever done a 5K on deck 4??

YES! I'm pretty sure they do it. We missed CC due to medical emergencies and I swear I remember them saying the 5k would be held on the promenade deck. You may still have your race!! Good luck.

You should be ok since hurricane season will be far behind! We have sailed twice in Janurary with no problems. Snow back home but no problems on the cruise.
