Don Juan 10/31 Sailing

For anyone else on this sailing, it left port a little while ago... Set to arrive in NY on 11/15...

Here is a direct tracking link for the voyage.

I'm on the Don Juan as well. Here's to hoping there are no delays as a result of the storm.

I think I would rather have a delay now than to be on one of the ships earlier... Maybe they will redirect our cars to another drop off port - if that's possible of course. It would make sense to drop mine off further south since its coming to Miami, but as long as it gets here, I'm good!

Wonder if they will redirect drop offs to GA until the mess is cleared up in NJ? Will try calling the ED department again today, but they were not in yesterday due to Sandy.

So... here is the update for anyone that is expecting their car set to arrive in NY/NJ...

I just spoke to the ED division via the toll free number. They have NO POWER still at the VPC and perhaps the entire port therefore, until such time that they are back to full operation, they are re-routing the ships due in over to Baltimore to another VPC.

If you want to talk to them yourself, the toll free number is 800-932-0831

Anytime!

I guess I am just glad that I am traveling again to keep my mind off of where my car is! I have Vegas, LA, Houston, and possibly St. Paul (not that I want to visit in the winter, but it pays the bills LOL).

Looks like the Don Juan is in Halifax, but they have added a stop in Baltimore between New York and Brunswick which has added 2 more days to the journey.

Is your car being dropped off in GA? Mine has a destination of NY, which is set to arrive at 4:30 AM tomorrow. Just sent an email off to my CA to see when they estimate my redelivery date.

Here is the rest of the schedule for those following along:

Code:
PORT            ARRIVAL         DEPARTURE
NEW YORK, NY    15/11/2012 	16/11/2012
BALTIMORE, MD   17/11/2012 	17/11/2012
BRUNSWICK, GA   20/11/2012 	20/11/2012
CHARLESTON,SC   21/11/2012 	21/11/2012

Yes, my car is going to be delivered to GA. Originally, the schedule had the ship arriving in GA on the 19th, but a couple of days ago Baltimore was added and it added an extra day.

Car is in NY as of yesterday... And now the wait begins... Luckily, I am out of town for the next 10 days, so my "sitting and waiting" at home will be non-existent! I hope it can be in Miami for delivery upon my return

Anybody else on the Don Juan discharging in Brunswick? Looks like my car was offloaded today, so I'll provide updates as they come up. Hopefully customs won't take too long.

Looks like my car has already cleared customs. That seems amazingly fast. So I'm guessing it went through customs when it was docked in New York? I'm trying to figure that out. Does Liner release mean its on its way to VDC?

I didn't realize the WW trace would show customs release - mine also shows a relatively quick turnaround (2 business days). I left a message with the ED dept yesterday but assume they're off the rest of this week. This gives me hope it will be through the VDC next week and on the way home...

cheezypoof,

Do you know where is your car now? My car was offloaded on the 23th from a different vessel and just want to have an idea how the system works. Thanks

I spoke with the ED department today and my car is at the VPC and is slated to be released over to the trucking company tomorrow. The rep did say that it is possible there could be a delay due to the backlog from the hurricane and the holidays. The trucking company has 24-48 hours to pick up the car from the VPC. I'm thinking best case scenario that I'll have my car this weekend.

I'm the same as Mbbrewer - ED department said my car made it out of customs on Monday (which doesn't line up with the WW tracking report that showed 'customs release' on the 19th) - nevertheless it went into the VDC today and barring any issues they find with the vehicle it should be released to the trucking guys soon. My CA is pretty confident the car will be ready for me when I get back stateside on the 7th.

Got home yesterday and emailed my CA... He now says that after NJ, it went to GA and is supposed to be here in Miami no later than Monday.

Only thing now is that I leave Sunday on work travel for 3 weeks
