Strange Smell Delays Boarding Of Disney Ship POSTED: 3:03 pm EDT September 29, 2005 A suspicious smell emanating from a suitcase turned out to be food but it was strong enough for a pair of alert bomb-sniffing dogs to keep passengers from boarding the Disney Wonder cruise ship Thursday, according to Local 6 News partner Florida Today. The Brevard County sheriff's bomb squad was called into Port Canaveral to search several pieces of luggage being loaded onto the 964-foot-long ship about 11:30 a.m. after two bomb-sniffing dogs picked up on the scent. The ship was scheduled to leave about 5 p.m. for the Bahamas. "There was a suspicious suitcase found and as part of our standard procedures, we evacuated the ship," Rena Langley, a spokeswoman for the Disney Cruise Line told Florida Today. The suspicious smell apparently came from food someone packed away in the suitcase, said Andrew Walters, spokesman for the Brevard County Sheriff's Office. Bomb squad members X-rayed each piece of luggage on the cart headed for the ship, Walters said. Passengers waited just over two hours before being allowed to finally board the vessel about 2 p.m. "It's just the climate that our country is in right now," said Bill Nowak, an Orlando man who was cruising with his wife and two children.
