On COURAGE!

Just found out my car has finally set sail for the US on Courage. It is a WWL ship due in Baltimore with an ETA of 12/10, delivery before Christmas is on the cards again..

Do I have company while on this 13 day voyage?

I am on Courage and my port of departure is Baltimore as well. I am hopping to be able to pick my car up friday the 14. The dealership that I am picking the car up from is less than a hour from the port.

Here is a link to track the ship.

Like I said earlier, we could also be sharing a truck from the port to the dealer.
From what dealer are you picking up your car?

Yes you called it. I can't think of a reason why our cars wouldn't be on the same truck. I ordered mine from Fields in Northfield, and yourself?...I'm estimating our cars will be ready for pickup the following week after they arrive on Monday 12/10. Delivery that weekend of 12/15 may be wishful thinking but who knows! So we'll get our cars well before Xmas...I might even hold off and take delivery Xmas eve lol. Very exciting times...

I guess I'm not on that boat, as the WW site still says "No records found"? I don't want to bug my CA. But it seems I could be on there with ya? My car got to port 11/21.

I'll be picking mine up from Motorwerks in Barrington. Delivery that weekend would be great, but I am not too hopeful about that. Exciting times indeed!

I'm afraid you might not be on board with us on Courage. If you were indeed on it, the WW website would have updated with your VIN by now like ours did this morning.
You are doing PCD, so your port of arrival would be Charleston? There's another WW boat leaving for Charleston today AIDA.

Port of arrival is going to be Brunswick, GA.

How long after you get on boat does it show up on the WW tracker?

Did you type in your entire VIN? Because I did and no records showed up. It wasn't until I just put in the last 7 digits of the VIN when my car's info popped up...my car arrived to port 11/23

This is my current status as of this morning. I kept getting 'No Records Found' until late last night.

Didn't realize it could be tracked by only the last 7 characters also. So I guess it can be tracked by both the full VIN and the last 7 characters.

I am picking my car up in Maryland at passport BMW.

I talked the new car manager and he said that they should be able to expedite the delivery to the dealership once it is unloaded in Baltimore.

Cool. Do post some visual treats for all of whose cars would be so close yet so far.
