Anyone else on the Tijuca cargo ship?

My gem just left Bremerhaven April 8th on the Tijuca. Is anyone else on the same ship? I'm not sure if being able to track it helps or makes the anticipation that much worse.

I'm on the Tijuca as well. It was agonizing being stuck at the port of exit. Now at least we can see our cars heading towards their new owners.

Hey guys!!

Finally it sounds like this is the boat I am on. I checked shipping schedules, as my status changed to "in transit" on the 7th, which happens to be the same date as the vessel "Tijuca" was leaving.

My problem with Tijucas schedule is that it is scheduled to stop in New York, NY, and I was under the impression that the cars coming to the Tri-State (I am in CT) get off at a port in New Jersey. No New Jersey ports were listed for that ship.

Am I on this boat? Hope so, I just emailed my SA to ask.

No worries regardng the New York/New Jersey thing. New York City really means New Jersey as far as these voyages go. I'm wondering if you might be on the ship that left on April 1st (The Undine). You wrote that your status updated on the 7th. I know that the 800 number is at least a couple of days behind the actual status and the OC is more like three to five days behind (based on my experience). I'm sure your SA will be able to confirm. In any event, I'm glad our cars are finally on the water.

Wow you are absolutely correct.

I contacted my dealer and he said the car was on the UNDINE. I had thought the 800 number was dead on, so this was a good surprise.

Thanks for the info, and yeah all cars on the water for now!!

Very interesting. I may be on the Undine as well then. I guess I need to make the official call. I ass-umed since my status changed on the 7th.
