Tropical Update: Tropical Storm Odile (Pacific) 9/11/2014

We normally do not track tropical systems in the Pacific as the focus is usually in the Bahamas and Caribbean, but the Disney Wonder is scheduled to arrive in San Diego Friday morning and depart on a 14-night Eastbound Panama Canal Cruise Friday evening. Early Wednesday morning, a tropical depression developed south of Mexico and has since strengthened into Tropical Storm Odile. TS Odile is forecast to remain over open waters while moving northwest align the west coast of Mexico.

Disney Cruise Line has sent email to guests sailing on the Panama Canal Cruise to let them know the cruise will sail as planned, but the Captain may need to alter the first few days to avoid Odile. The following is a copy of the email from DCL which was shared by a passenger booked on the cruise.
