Its moving at a pretty good clip, barring the port being closed they will make it on time.

Yes, it is at Marine Traffic Control. If you limit it to passenger vessels underway and show the names you'll see the Dream and Fantasy both east of Miami and heading north now. They are alone. Might be an interesting ride tonight.

Just checked Marine Traffic and the Dream and Fantasy are really close to each other! Could be a cool opportunity and I think the Fantasy is looking at getting as close as they can and then finding out if they will dock. Cause at the moment, she will get to the port, the questions is if the port will let her dock...

Just read that a couple of passenger vessels that were heading for Ft. Lauderdale have docked at commercial docks in Jacksonville. Their cruise lines are providing bus transportation to Lauderdale. (Holland America).

Port Canaveral has scheduled port calls for ships that are missing Nassau

any ship originally scheduled for Canaveral should have no problem

Here's the link for the Fantasy: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...mmsi=311058700

Here's the link for the Dream: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...mmsi=311042900

If the ship is in range of any radar, that page will have a link to the current track.

Good luck to everyone on board or soon to be sailing either ship.

Tropical Weather Update
10/26/2012

We continue to monitor Hurricane Sandy very closely as it moves through The Bahamas, passing just off the coast of Florida.

At this time, we are notifying Guests sailing on Saturday, October 27, 2012 Disney Fantasy cruise that there is the potential of a delay in the boarding process should the wind conditions prohibit the ship from safely navigating the channel in Port Canaveral on Saturday morning.

Guests sailing on the October 27, 2012 voyage are advised to check our website or call us at 1-866-858-7416 on Saturday morning for updates and port operation hours before traveling to Port Canaveral. Our next scheduled update will be posted by 9 a.m. EST on Saturday, October 27, 2012.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during any potential delay and look forward to welcoming you onboard.

Currently on board...violently rocking and rolling. Off the coast of Florida. They delayed us until at least noon tomorrow. It is quite awful, very scared.
