Disney Cruise Line has just posted on their website a revised itinerary for the October 25, 2012 3-Night Bahamian Cruise on the Disney Dream. Unfortunately, Castaway Cay has been dropped from the itinerary, and the day at Nassau will depend on the weather. Originally, the Dream was scheduled to call on Nassau on Friday, and Castaway Cay on Sunday.
Tropical Weather Update
We are currently monitoring Hurricane Sandy very closely as it moves north through the Caribbean towards The Bahamas.
As this time, the October 25, 2012 Disney Dream sailing will depart Port Canaveral as scheduled. However, given the predicted path of the storm, we realize that the ship’s itinerary will need to be altered as the storm passes through The Bahamas.
Unfortunately, the storm is expected to produce tropical storm and hurricane force winds near Nassau and our private island, Disney’s Castaway Cay for most of the day on Friday and early on Saturday.
The revised itinerary is as follows:
Thursday, October 25 – Port Canaveral, Florida
Friday, October 26 – Day at Sea
Saturday, October 27 – Nassau (pending weather conditions)
Sunday, October 28 – Port Canaveral, Florida
The safety and security of our guests is always our top priority. If necessary, our Captains are always prepared to alter the ships’ courses or itineraries to navigate away from inclement weather.
I just got word from a friend on the Fantasy that they will also not be going to Castaway Cay this week.
I will continue to update the today’s Tropical Update post with the latest on Hurricane Sandy.
