Disney cruisers that are currently on the Disney Wish have ran into some mechanical issues. Disney Cruise Line did not share what those issues were, but it made the cruise ship have to stay overnight in Nassau versus heading off towards Castaway Cay.

They still were able to enjoy pieces of their Pirate Night, however, because they were still in Nassau they did not have fireworks. This morning the ship set sail around 10:00 am.

Today, Disney Cruise Line shared information with current Wish Guests. The letter stated:

“We make every effort to ensure that our shipboard operations runs smoothly and efficiently at all times. Due to an unexpected mechanical issue, it was necessary to extend our time in port overnight. Our engineering team worked to resolve the issue, and we are rescheduled to depart from Nassau this morning at 10 a.m.

Weather conditions are not favorable at this time, and as a result the itinerary has been modified, and the ship will not call on Disney Castaway Cay today.

Pre-reserved Port Adventures at Disney Castaway Cay will automatically be removed from Guests’ cruise plans. Any pre-reserved services at Palo, Remy, It’s A Small World Nursery and Senses Spa will remain as originally scheduled.”

This sailing of the Disney Wish will not call on Disney’s Castaway Cay as scheduled however each stateroom will receive $100 of onboard credit and 20% discount on a future cruise. Fireworks at sea have also been reschedule to tonight.
