key west cancelled today?

Recommended Posts

Was looking at ptztv key west webcam today.   We have a cruise on Empress Oct 5th and was just wanting to check it out on the webcam.  Noticed that all 3 ships, Celebrity Equinox, Majesty, and Empress are not there and are listed as cancelled.   Wonder why that is?   Weather doesn't look too bad, kinda windy.

I can tell you that wind is a major concern when docking at Key West.  That is, if it comes from the wrong direction, the ship becomes a giant sail, and it's impossible to control the docking. This happened to us on a small ship (Grandeur) when the weather was otherwise beautiful.  So at times the port call can be cancelled.  Don't know how often....

Yes, it was because of rough seas. Boarded Majesty Saturday and upon getting to our state room, we received notification of a sea day followed by an overnight at Nassau. The captain sailed straight to the shelter of Grand Bahama but it was a fairly rough ride for a few hours. After that we went back and forth  just south of the Island with the ship looking for the sunniest weather.  Made for a great sea day. 

It did take a couple hours to get over the change, cause hey, this was supposed to be our Cuba cruise. Honestly, having a ball on the ship and love staying over. Not live blogging but will be posting my thoughts on Majesty and Nassau later on.
