Anybody else at port in Bremerhaven?

The Turandot arrives in the Port of NY in three days. Assuming this vessel does not sink, our new cars will be with us shortly.

The latest info I'm seeing on the fleetmon app is that the Turandot is expected to dock in NJ around 1 AM tomorrow, way ahead of schedule. I don't know how accurate that info is, but if it's true, I'm really excited! We might get our 5ers around the beginning of October. Must have had favorable seas and weather.

Does fleetmon continue to track the ship when it is in the middle of the ocean? I have the marine traffic app, which states that the ship is out of range once it leaves the coastal area.

Fleetmon does update over the Atlantic. If you want an up-to-the-minute update, you have to pay for it. Otherwise, it tends to get an update once a day and then updates the ETA.

I took another look at the Marine Traffic website. It looks like you can get information when the ship is out to sea, but you have to specifically register for that service in addition to your general registration. Since I did not try to register, I do not know if there is a charge.

I have to say that I'm more than a little bit skeptical now about the Fleetmon ETA. If it were true, it should have shown up on the marinetraffic.com web site since it should be within 100 miles of the coast. But it hasn't shown up there yet.

Marine Traffic is acting oddly. If you look up the Turandot on Marine Traffic, it says it is not in range, as does the Marine Traffic App, but it is there and it is in range. I do not know exactly what I did, but the the Marine Traffic App now shows the Turandot as being in the North Atlantic heading toward NY.

Thanks, Ghost! That seems to make sense now.

I know I did not explain it well, but the bottom line is that the Marine Traffic App does show the Turandot heading west in the North Atlantic. It is south of Nova Scotia and seems to be even with the eastern edge of N.S. as I am viewing the map at 10:25 p.m. eastern time.

Not yet.

Originally, the Turandot was scheduled to arrive on 9/25/13, but then the arrival date was moved up to 9/24/13.

Currently, the Turandot is heading west and just passed the tip of eastern Long Island.

Looks like it will arrive on 9/24/13.
