In a developing story we have learned the Disney Cruise Ship the Disney Fantasy skipped their port stop at Castaway Cay due to engine issues. The ship is sailing at a reduce speed of 17.2 knots instead of the normal 22 knots in order to make it back to Port Canaveral in time for their next sailing.
The fantasy is on the 6th day of a 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise, which has already stopped at St Thomas, and Tortola. We are being told all staterooms were informed of the problem around lunchtime on the February 4th. You can read a copy of the letter here. Disney is offering a discount on 3, 4, or 7 night cruises of 20% for cruises taken within 24 months. There is also $200 in on-board credits being returned to all guests.
Disney cruise line was not available for comment, but we are being told the February 6th Fantasy cruise should not be delayed.
