Thinking about you all! I was reading updates before heading to bed and the Fantasy and the passengers and crew were the first thing on my mind getting up

I see she is close so hang in there!

Safe travels to those going home and arriving!

To be honest, DCL might not know more than they have already said. They are waiting just like everyone else. They are not the ones in control right now. It's the weather, the ocean and the Coast Guard.

I will not get over it. I own my own business & know that I need to provide customer service. For $10,000. I spent on this vacation, I'm only asking for an update from DCL.

That being said... I do pray for safety for those on-board.
Disney says boarding does not begin until 1:00. If this is not changing there is no need to update. Those of us who read these boards have too much info at times most people won't even know that the ship is coming in late.

Regarding updates: did you sign up for text or email updates? Just wondering if they are working.
About the ship/rough seas: I might be quite peeved to have been that scared, and thrown out of bed etc. (do they have straps? - thinking children on upper berths)
Where does DCL place the psychological well being of its passengers on the list of priorities? Maybe the profits of the next cruise as well as travelers schedules, food supply etc are more important than the business loss of a few passengers now too fearful to ever cruise again? I ask because I just spent quite a bit of time reassuring DD9 yesterday, that DCL sails AWAY from storms and rough seas... LOL (wont be sharing THIS thread)
Looking forward to reading more stories about this; I guess I am a Nervous Nellie!

If you scroll down (and zoom out a bit), you can see her position in blue.

They emailed everyone on the 10/27 fantasty cruise at 6:45pm last night that there may be a delay, so everyone should know of the possibility. I find it hard to believe they have no new info since then. They stated there would be a 9am update, thats just a bit long to wait between updates.

Type in Disney in the vessel box on the top left side then click on Fantasy

That's a good sign, right? Safe travels, to those coming home, and those leaving today, or those like me leaving on the Dream tomorrow!
