Second, Hurricane Sandy has obviously had some effects on the Disney Cruise lines- specifically those who boarded in the past couple of days, and had to deal with some unexpected weather. I could only imagine... that's one unfortunate gamble that affects all cruise lines, the weather.
Apparently the Disney Fantasy experienced a little bit of Sandy-it's been reported from passengers onboard that there were broken windows and some other damage.
I found this article- it details some of the damage, and provides more pictures.
Also, here's a link to a CNNi report from a passenger onboard, complete with video. Sounds a bit scary, but they also wrote of how well the captain and crew managed the ship.
Disney recently came out with this statement:
