Disney Cruise Line is alerting guests booked on this weekend’s January 25, 2020 Disney Fantasy 7-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise with Star Wars Day at Sea that the Disney Fantasy is currently experiencing a technical issue that requires the ship to sail at a reduced speed.
I noticed we haven’t been going faster than 17 knots in the last few days. Thought it was because we couldn’t dock in ports and were taking it slow. I did notice that we picked up a pro dive crew in Coz, and were diving today at Castaway. Could see their video, were at props— Ryan Smith (@erdoc38) January 24, 2020
While the ship is operating safely and will be back to full speed by Tuesday, January 28th, an itinerary change is necessary. On Tuesday, the Disney Fantasy will call on San Juan, Puerto Rico instead of the previously scheduled stop in Tortola.
Disney Cruise Line will be issuing each stateroom a $150 onboard credit as a gesture of good will.
The revised itinerary is as follows:
- Saturday January 25, 2020 – Port Canaveral
- Sunday January 26, 2020 – At Sea
- Monday January 27, 2020 – At Sea
- Tuesday January 28, 2020 – San Juan
- Wednesday January 29, 2020 – St. Thomas (St. John)
- Thursday January 30, 2020 – At Sea
- Friday January 31, 2020 – Castaway Cay
Saturday February 1, 2020 – Port Canaveral (Debarkation)
Below is a copy of the email which was sent to travel agents with clients booked on the sailing. Special thanks to Heather Keller from Storybook Destinations for passing along this information.
The email states that any pre-reserved Port Adventures in Tortola will automatically be removed from Guests’ cruise plans and Disney will try to re-accommodate Guest with excursion in San Juan. Pre-reserved service at Palo, Remy, it’s a small world nursery, and senses spa will also remain as originally scheduled. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique was not mentioned in the correspondence.
