The Disney Fantasy is currently on a 7-night Western Caribbean sailing that departed Port Canaveral, FL on August 5. Today, the itinerary called for a stop in Cozumel, Mexico but that has been changed to due Tropical Storm Franklin.
Tropical Storm Franklin formed overnight in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall near Cozumel this evening. There is the potential for the storm to further strengthen to a hurricane by the time it makes landfall. The Yucatan Peninsula, where Cozumel is located, is currently under tropical storm and hurricane warnings. Reports of seas from eight to ten feet have been reported making it unsafe for the Fantasy to sail into the area.
So far, the ship is expected to return to it’s scheduled itinerary tomorrow with a stop in Grand Cayman. From there, the Fantasy is scheduled to sail to Jamaica on Wednesday and Castaway Cay on Friday before returning back to Port Canaveral on Saturday.
As a travel agent, I receive questions all the time when it comes to cruising and hurricanes. It is extremely rare for a cruise to be completely cancelled due to a hurricane. However, as in this instance, advanced technology allows ships to be diverted around bad weather so everyone can go on to still have a magical and comfortable time!
