Tropical storm changed cruise ship itineraries
The tropical storm Franklin has altered cruise itineraries on at least two cruise lines sailing to the Caribbean this week. It currently has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph and is moving west towards Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula at 13 mph. The Disney Cruise Line has altered the itinerary for "Disney Fantasy". The cruise ship spent a day at sea on Aug 8, 2017, bypassing a stop in Cozumel. Carnival Cruise Line also made a change due to the tropical storm. The "Carnival Breeze" will sail a reverse itinerary and will now stop in Cozumel on Aug 11 instead of Aug 9.
Cruise ship spotted Cuban castaways
The "Disney Fantasy" spotted three stranded Cubans on Apr 21, 2016. The Cubans were seen by passengers on the ship while sailing not far from Varadero on Cuba’s North coast. They were hanging on to a small capsized boat´. The two males and one female had been heading towards Cuba and not towards the United States. The United States Coast Guard was called and the ship waited until they arrived. Two of the Cuban nationals had outstanding federal warrants and all three had been involved in criminal activity. None of them were injured or needed any urgent medical attention. The cruise ship was sailing a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise which departed Port Canaveral, Florida on Apr 16 and was sailing from the Cayman Islands towards Disney’s own private island Castaway Cay located in the Bahamas when the stranded boaters were spotted.
