Vessel AIDA Departs Bremerhaven 10/24/12

Dropped off at Munich Airport 10/12/12 @ 9:30 am, Shipping Line WWL-Vessel AIDA departs Bremerhaven 10/24/12 arrives in New Jersey Port 11/7/12. Rec'ed booking number and Voyage ID-CA243 from Munich @loginout.de. Others that had drop offs around this time maybe on this voyage. Lots of questions on Bimmerfest as to second delivery time table. This may help answer part of the question.

Mine is also on AIDA. I dropped off mine on October 16. New Jersey drop-off on Nov 7. Wonder how long it will take from then to actual pick-up from my NJ dealership.

Apparently - is take up to 30 days or more to go from the port to your dealer. I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Cargo Vessel Aida was in the English Channel at 11:30am on 10/25. For those interested in ED second delivery-Drop off 10/12 @ 9:30 Munich Airport. Car booked on Vessel Aida 10/16 @10:30am. Car was received at Aida's Terminal in Bremerhaven 10/21 @1:50 pm, Loaded on Vessel 10/23 @ 10:30 pm. Vessel departs morning of 10/25, presently in the English Channel moving about 15MPH( Take kn x 1.15 to convert from kn to mph) Aida is expected in NY on the 7th after a stop in Nova Scotia. It looks like the stops in New York, NY, Charleston SC, and Brunswick,GA are just a few hours. For those on Aida we are as they say in Maine " Making Way" or "Steaming". For us FESTER's waiting on our jewel to arrive, this is a "slow boat to China"

Aida is holding a position at the entrance of the English Channel. This is obviously a change in float plan and a delay. Maybe the storm at sea is the issue...so arrive in NY on the 7th would be questionable.

I don't think so - one of the stops is at the port Zeebrugge Belgium 10/26, then another stop in the South Hampton (10/28)UK before in begins to cross the Atlantic. I think its still right no schedule.

I wonder if they will bypass the NY port all together. Apparently some traffic is being diverted to Baltimore.

Aida's next port is New York on Wednesday. Does anyone know the status of custom's or the ability of haulers to exist New York?

My M5 is on AIDA... it looks like they just added Baltimore, but New York still remains as a stop. It is possible that they are still stoping in NYC but not offloading BMW's because the Jersey City Vehicle Distribution Center is still closed. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Probably bypassing all together and heading for Baltimore to drop of the NY port cars. I guess we will know in a day or two when we will see it on the ship track.

The only reason I don't think it is bypassing NYC is because the last ship, The Turandot, went directly to baltimore and they removed NYC from the voyage schedule. I also don't think it should take 4 days to go from Hailfax to Baltimore

Undoubtedly the NJ VPC probably has a back log of clean up and cars to clear that were there during before and during Sandy and as of yesterday were still without power according to another post. The customs and the VPC probably closed early due to the storm and are a couple of days behind in addition to the power and storm clean up. Also there is the possibility that ICE personnel may have been pulled to support other efforts in the clean up which may have left the port under staffed.

With all those maybes against you, you probably fare better if they go to Baltimore and deliver you are from there rather than NY.

Just my $.02

Saw the same info as above and talked with the Euro delivery folks on the 800 number. They said the NJ VPC is still without power but undamaged. Ships are being directed to offload at Baltimore. They also said th ship schedules are slow to update. So hang tight. Our vehicles will be home soon. And, as a thank you to all the folks helping solve our relatively minor problem, send a donation to the Red Cross. I have friends in Jersey still without power - hard to imagine a week without electricity.

I agree, I have said that since my first post, I don't think my vehicle is going to be offloaded in NYC. The only point I am trying to make is that the ship itself is stopping in NYC, they could possibly be unloading other non BMW vehicles from the ship.

Looks as if Aida is not going to dock in NY right away. It's out in front of the port several miles heading north. Does anyone know status of moving on south or is the NY port delaying Aida's arrival?

I saw that the NY date was pushed back to the 8th. So probably a backlog of ships that are waiting to get into the port.

Also, the weather. We are in the midst of a Nor'easter at the moment -- high winds, snow. The cars are better off inside the ship than outside sitting on the dock.
