Anyone know if US VPCs are closed today and/or Monday?

From searching, it seems like Bremerhaven has a 4-day weekend, but I'm hoping BMWNA is still toiling away since my baby just landed Wednesday

Not sure, but hopefully you car is already out of there! Mine took less than 24 hours.

Nice, that's encouraging! Although in my case, the car's got to go from the port in Charleston to Spartanburg, which is about 200 miles, so my guess is that it didn't even get there until yesterday afternoon or evening. Crossing my fingers...

Don't know if Bremerhaven really has a 4 day weekend, but with these holidays in mind it makes sense at least.

Which ship could your car be on? Is there one leaving before 'Don Juan' (scheduled for March 28th)?

Which company is Don Juan with?

From my tracking thread.
This is what I found on the ships at Bremerhaven:

Hmm... maybe it's just BMW's folks at the port that have the holidays? Not sure.

Ok, but where are people getting this information. Is it just conjecture?

I see, I'm not that much into vessel tracking. Don Juan goes to Port Huneme, not Charleston.

Yes, that'd be epic, but the 'Patriot' might still be more appropriate. BTW: There isn't a 'Jack Sparrow', is it?
