Disney Cruise Line is closely monitoring a low pressure system in the Pacific. The National Hurricane Center’s current outlook suggests the area of low pressure has lost organization over the last few days, but environmental conditions appear conducive for development, and a
tropical depression or tropical storm Vicente is likely to form over the weekend or early next week while the system moves generally west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph near or just offshore the coast of southern Mexico.
According to the correspondence from Disney Cruise Line, the system is a safe distance away and moving along the southern Mexican coast. However, the current forecast has the storm near Puerto Vallarta on Monday. Given the storm’s projected path, and in order to provide passengers with a safe and comfortable sailing, Disney will modify Friday’s 14-Night Eastbound Panama Canal cruise from San Diego replacing Monday’s stop in Puerto Vallarta with a day at sea.
DCL says the decision was made in an effort to minimize the impact of the weather system on your sailing. The safety and well-being of Guests and Crew Members must always be Disney’s first priority.
Any pre-reserved Port Adventures in Puerto Vallarta will be automatically removed from onboard accounts.
Disney will continue to monitor the path and progress of the system and provide passengers with any additional updates, should they be necessary.
