Both of the vessels remained at sea as they moved to avoid the Category 4 storm. The "Carnival Conquest" and "Carnival Sensation" skipped calls scheduled for Oct 2 in Grand Turk and Nassau, Bahamas, respectively. The "Carnival Conquest" was remaining at sea while the "Carnival Sensation" headed to Freeport. The "Norwegian Getaway" skipped the call at Nassau on Oct 2 and was remaining at sea. The "Disney Magic" has been re-routed to the Western Caribbean instead of the Bahamas with calls at Key West, and Cozumel on Oct 1 and 2, instead of Castaway Cay, Disney's private island in the Bahamas, and Nassau. The "Disney Dream" skipped a call in Nassau scheduled for Oct 2, while the "Disney Fantasy" dropped a call at Castaway Cay. The "Royal Princess" missed a call on Sep 30 at the line's private island in the Bahamas, Princess Cays, due to the storm and a second call at the island scheduled for Oct 2.On Oct 1 at 8 p.m. Joaquin was about 75 miles south of San Salvador, Bahamas and moving to the west-southwest at five miles per hour.
