Disney Cruise Unable to Port

Here’s a little bit of interesting news.

The storm surge from Frances pushed so much sand into Port Canaveral it reduced the depth to a level that the larger ships can no longer pass through the entry channel into the port. None of the larger ships including the Cost Guard and all of the cruise ships are able to safely enter the port. In addition, most of the channel marker buoys are also missing or moved and must be reposition by NOAA to mark the safe draft passage into and out of the port.

Disney announce a little bit ago that they will be operating their ships out of Port Everglades while folks figure out how to get the channel open and dredged at Canaveral to allow them to safely bring the ships into the port.

Here’s a link to the update on the DCL site with a little more info. (via)
