Hurricane Dorian talk

Recommended Posts

Seems a bit premature for PC to set condition XRAY, no?

 

XRAY is supposed to be 48 hr to gale force winds, and with the latest models showing winds not coming until sometime on Sunday, thats >48 hrs out still.

Pretty sure the previous poster meant to say 'now' rather than 'not'.  I checked PC's website, they've definitely set condition XRAY as of 3pm today.

 

That would make more sense! Those finger fumbles that change the whole sentence!

Yeah funny how people not on the ship like us have more info.

It was from *****, I never said it was right or that I know more than those on it. 

I will be on it 9/1 hopefully. Hope you have a great rest of your trip and make it back 9/1 so I can get on.

I now know that site is unreliable and found the reliable site that shows Allure heading to Cozumel. Sorry for the inaccurate info in the earlier post.

Well I mean, thats kind of how these things work - going XRAY is ~24hr ahead of going YANKEE by definition

On the lower right side of the map, it indicates either "planned" or "actual" position.  Ship's itinerary was changed.

I figured the forecast could alter that a bit..make the 24 hour period a little longer as it's based on anticipation of the arrival of the TS force winds.  They didn't give an anticipated time for Yankee like they did yesterday for X-Ray.

The site you were posting from was showing the projected position based on the original itinerary.  It was not updated when they switched from east to west.

Very wise. If they find out the cruise is cancelled they might want to escape before the airport is closed. Not fun at all either way. 

They are on our Allure TA for Nov 1st 2020 so she is reporting in regularly to let us all know their status.

Rumor is that the crew on Harmony has said they are headed back to Cozumel.  

I heard from a crew on harmony that there’s talk of Sunday being a sea day. My friend spoke their HR person about the rumors and was told nothing is official yet

Port Canaveral has now changed operating status to XRAY. 48 hours before suspected gale force winds. Next status change results in restrictions. 

 

They're sure not taking any chances in the area - now NASA has brought the crawler transporter to the launch pad to move the 400-foot tall mobile launcher to the vehicle assembly building if needed:

Scanned the forum briefly, didn't see; where are the cruises headed this weekend?  Assume diverted from Bahamas?  Key West?  Or just head south as cruise to nowhere?  Cancelled?
