On the Don Juan, but I think it broke down!

My BMW finally set sail early Saturday morning and was chugging along until......last night. It came to a complete stop just before the English Channel. I checked this morning and now it's traveling straight toward the shore at a much slower speed.

It's normal. Certain vessel stops over for loading & unloading of vehicles at Southampton. My ED carrier did the same.

Thanks for the heads up guys, I'm relieved.
The stop just seemed too close and it was strange how the ship pasted the port and turned back. It must have been waiting for the dock.

I'm on the Don Juan also. Dropped my M3 off 4/15 in Zurich.... This wait might be worse than the original ED wait

I was on the Madame Butterfly, which dropped off last week. Yes, this wait is WAY worse...

I did ED and just saw my W&W tracker update to "Delivered From". Think that means I'm at VDC. What does yours say?
