On Wednesday afternoon, guests booked on the Disney Fantasy’s September 9, 2023 voyage were informed by Disney Cruise Line the itinerary would be altered from a 8-night Bermuda and Bahamian Cruise to an 8-night Western Caribbean Cruise due to the impending track of then, Tropical Storm Lee which late Wednesday intensified into Hurricane Lee.
We have been closely monitoring Tropical Storm Lee, which is currently moving through the Atlantic Ocean and is predicted to become a hurricane later this week. Based on the storm’s current forecast track, Bermuda and the seas around Bermuda will be potentially impacted over the next week and a half, making it unsuitable for cruise travel.Email from Disney Cruise Line – September 6, 2023
As a result, Disney Cruise Line made modifications to the itinerary positioning the Disney Fantasy away from the hurricane’s forecast track bypassing Bermuda. The revised Western Caribbean sailing will visit Cozumel, Mexico, and George Town, Grand Cayman, as well as back-to-back days at Castaway Cay.
The revised itinerary is below:

- Wednesday September 13, 2023 – At Sea
