Just spent e terrifying night on The Fantasy

I have never been so scared. Things were literally flying around my stateroom(9140). At 1 am capt Tom came into the staterooms and asked everyone to stay in their stateroom. Then 30 min later he came in again reassuring everyone that the ship was safe and we were in no danger. I looked out my balcony and it looked like a scene from The Perfect Storm. I can't wait to get my feet on dry land!!! We are now preparing to enter the channel at Port Canaveral.

Yeah, I'm watching the web cam to see ya'll come in. I can't imagine how scary that must have been. I'm glad he was reassuring everyone. How was the rest of the cruise?

Aww hugs coming your way and I'm sure that was very scary!

Hang in there - we are watching you head in.

Safe travels and soon you'll be on solid ground!!

Take care,

Wow, he actually came into the staterooms. Or do you mean he made announcements? That is really amazing. Very reassuring. I hope you all make it back safe and sound!

Yuck! I'm glad you made it in safely! I remember an earlier thread where someone posted that they hoped for an experience like this. They thought it would be fun. I thought they were nuts and I reminded them that they wouldn't be the only one on board.

Otherwise, how was the cruise?

Glad you back safe. What are they telling you about disembarking? Do you have to be out of your staterooms by 8:00? Did they do the 6:30 breakfast?

Glad you are all safe. Must have been terrifying such experience. I for one will never want such experience TBH. I am also surprised to hear that the captain came in your stateroom or maybe you meant that the captain made announcements.

They are telling is to stay in our staterooms for now. We are right in front of the terminal now turning to dock. Then they still have to get all of the bags off the ship and in the terminal. It is going to be a while yet.

I meant he came in the staterooms over the speaker systems. He never does that.
