Disney Fantasy Changes from Eastern to Western Caribbean Itinerary Ahead of Dorian

On Saturday, August 24, 2019, Tropical Storm Dorian formed in the Atlantic Ocean and the Disney Fantasy departed from Port Canaveral on a 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruise. The Tropical Storm is forecasted to head through the Lesser Antilles and as a result, the decision was made to re-route the ship to the Western Caribbean.

Disney Cruise Line made its decision based on the forecast of the storm’s route and the prediction that it will become a hurricane later in the week so they can remain what they feel is a safe distance away.
