Hmmm... 'multiple' passengers (from a ship capable of holding 5,000) have reported .....? No record from Coast Guard ....

Why am I a little suspicious of the credibility of this actually happening?

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. . . It's learning how to dance in the rain! We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails.

I don't think anyone will be contacting us directly to verify this is happening. What makes anyone suspicious when someone reports an incident?

Wonder why no passenger reports? Cell phones should be working. The Dream is still in port as of this AM.

This nonsense is happening far too often now with Carnival's ships!

Something's up and it won't be CCL's stock quote!

I just saw live footage of the ship in port, it was scheduled to leave yesterday at 5:00 pm.
Sadly, I think the report is true.

There would be no reason to report it to the Coast Guard. They are in port in St. Maarten. The Coast Guard would only help if they are at sea.

As a fellow cruise critic member and know how excited I was this week last time, and have friends boarding this sat also, thought you guys may want to keep an eye out on carnival site and webcam to see if we are moving. We are more than 10 hrs behind schedule at this point.

Will try and update when things change.
