    Oops! Ouch!

    I agree...that is why I am thinking something happened that the mains didn't turn over in time! Either a Bridge order, joy stick or a mechanical problem???

    I am really surprised at Royal Caribbean Line......rotted life vests???

    Tom you make sense, however, as EOD K9 pointed out.....technically.......you left the US the second both feet were on the deck of the vessel and off the gangway. With DCL vessels, you were in the Bahamas. Customs, USCG , etc.is like dealing with the IRS............you lose! The practical...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Hi Marni.........that is a idea,.... but you want to keep the main wires running and if like Spaceship earth, someone trips or there is problems loading a wheelchair or scooter, you would have to stop the whole line. The side track lets you stop the car on the side rail and keep the main line...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    Good Point, but it still will take time, with the help of CMs to get people on in a orderly manner..that is not a big deal, but I person was saying a 20 person gondola unloaded and loaded in 15 to 20 secounds.............no way.
