    Follow @DCLUPDATES on Twitter for live updates from our cruise. I will start tomorrow morning as we are on our way to port and will try to get some in while we are out at sea. I'll be posting some photos on this thread as well. Please let me know if you have any questions while I'm on the Magic, I would be more than happy to answer them for you.

    We are up early and watched the Magic come back on the webcam. Bags are good to go and we will be leaving in a few. I'll be switching over to Twitter now for updates. Have a great week everyone!:cool1:

    The Magic could not have arrived at port cause we are still presently docked at Castaway Cay.......We have been stranded here due to extremely severe weather situations and have yet to leave. I just woke up after a horrid night of high winds and rain. The boat is docked but it was swaying like you couldn't imagine. The Captain just came on and said its still to dangerous to set sail....I dont know when we are going to arrive in PC....:(

    Yup, we were on the western of 02-06 and yesterday was our day at CC. Well we are still docked here and spent the night here. As we were pulling out of the cut the captain pulled her right back in and said over the speakers that the weather deteriorated immediately as he was trying to get her out to sea. This morning he said that there is no word yet when we will set sail.....I thank him for being so vigilant. The night was horrid, I couldn't imagine going through that at sea......I am unsetteled a bit, I wish I knew what to expect....:( Has this ever happened before. The CM that I have been able to speak to about this seem to say that there has been delays before but never of this magnitude!

    I will try.....This is so weird. You can tell something was wrong yesterday. I have never seen so many people scramble so quickly....They had a really hard time getting the ship back to dock side. I kinda felt bad for the captain. My balcony is 5 balconies back from the Bridge side, where they stand out to see the back of the ship and the entire side of the ship where in their balconies staring at him and this entire scenario. No pressure....lol.....I will keep you guys updated. As I write this the ship is swaying so bad and when a good wind gust hits it, its just jolts you....:(

    Wow! Feel good for you to spend more time on the Magic but sorry for the "new" folks who will have their vacation cut short!

    Just saw this on the news. I knew I was going in late for work but was unsure why. That said it's about a 13 hour trip and said they didn't think the ship would be back until this evening. Going to be a very hectic day at the terminal. Lots of guests will be showing up not knowing anything is wrong

    btw: not the longest delay,there was one cruise that had to spend an extra day at sea due to a hurricane and we did both ships at the same time in Fort Lauderdale

    Do the Magic and Wonder share the same dock? Will the delay on the Magic have a ripple effect on the Wonder leaving on the 14th?

    Are you stuck at the port right now? What's going on there with the Magic stuck at Castaway Cay?

    On the news they say the Wonder will either need to dock somewhere else or it may need to wait for the Magic to unload, reload and set out.

    what a logistical nightmare this is! rebooking people, finding a new cruise terminal for the Wonder. Yuk! sure am glad I don't work there today! Of course, spending another day at CC wouldn't be the worst either!!.. Hope they have plenty of food on board!
