It's interesting to be perfectly honest. The waves are amazing. I'm glad it happened at the end of the trip rather than the beginning or I'd be puking my guts out. But I feel fine. I'm sure there are people freaking out and to be fair, it is pretty bad now but aside from dropping us off in Miami or delaying a day, there aren't a ton of options. Our servers were telling us about when it got stuck in CC for a day and they started running out of food. I'd rather take a beating for 12 hours and make it into port. Some, I'm sure, will disagree. Biggest bummer was missing CC. Wish the forecast was such we could have gone the first day or 2 of cruise but hindsight....

Anyway, did all the normal stuff today and ship board life goes on. Hopefully we'll port tomorrow and have a good story to tell.

The very first Wonder cruise I went on had seas like that. It was not so much fun. During dinner we would see sky and sea, sky and sea, throughout the whole meal. I actually took meds and went to bed right after. They ran out of all sea sickness medicines, bands, etc. in the gift shop. However, amazingly, the show went on in the Walt Disney Theater. I have no idea how the performers made it through that performance.

Hugs for those onboard and those boarding tomorrow.

The Monarch of the Seas has made it into port this morning, so it is definitely possible for the Fantasy to do so as delayed as she may be. I've always wanted to be on the ships during rough seas just to see what it is like(I want to work onboard and wonder if I can handle the seas when they are not calm) but I hope everyone stays safe!

My main point is that the port is not closed. I didn't know when the monarch got in, just that she is there. I do believe that the Fantasy can get in port today, delayed as she may be.

We were on for hurricane Hannah in 2008. Yeah, we missed our second stop at CC but it actually wasn't bad. I got some great photos of the water sloshing (levitating) out of the pools, lol.

We are in WDW now at a resort waiting to board the Fantasy. I don't know what to do because we have a car on the way to pick us up & DCL & our car company are closed at the moment so I can't call anyone. Our travel agent is on vacation & I don't know what to do.

If we can't board until tonight & our WDW hotel check out time is at 11:00a? then what do we do until we can get on the ship? Help?

We are also peeved. Why can't they at least post an update for us with some est times. The ship isn't in PC yet, so no way we will board until later, but when is the question!

Yes, I understand that DCL has no control over the weather, but for those of us boarding the ship today we REALLY need an update sooner than 9:00am EST in order to change arrangements for our day!!!

If only we had getting on the cruise to worry about and not the safety of family on board for what must have been a terrible night!
