Update: my manager friend at art of animation said that resort buses now leaving at 430pm, boat was going to try to port at 11 but now 4pm and we are getting room credit.


WDWRC...do you mean the buses heading to the port on Saturday from WDW for the Fantasy Cruise aren't going to leave WDW for the Port until 4:30pm?

Thanks so much for any info!

Karen

Wow, I guess I don't have to freak out about the rush I was going to be in then leaving home...I live in Clermont.

That's going to make for an interesting first night, boarding in the evening. I wonder how they'll handle all the stuff that would be happening, if they'll just make it all later or what. Well, this is life in FL!

Thank you for the heads up!

This would upset me greatly; I thought their responsibility was to stay in calmer waters?!

Also on board now. Huge seas. My luggage is still out in hallway and has been thrown about. Almost tossed me out of bed. Captain just came on the overhead requesting everyone to stay in their cabins. Stuff is falling off shelves. Kids sleeping through whole thing. Whole boat shudders and creaks. Can't imagine what it would be like on smaller boat.

My friend, a crew member on the fantasy, just called and said it seemed like they came close to capsizing multiple times tonight. He seemed very worried and is really hoping they can dock tomorrow. Says the ship is getting pounded.

If it is this bad, why on earth are they there??? I understand this is a business and try to make port so that the next cruise can get underway, but this is not safe. THAT IS SO SCARY. I feel so bad for everyone on board.

It's bad but we aren't close to capsizing. Waves are 20+ feet. Rocking and rolling!

A relief that it isn't close to capsizing. I hope it eases up soon for you.

Thanks for clarifying that! We have confidence the captain would have avoided that situation entirely. Stay safe! Hope it calms down soon!
