Right now you should use: www.sailwx.info

Later this week as it gets close to North America the www.marinetraffic.com is a better tracker.

My car is on the same ship. Here you go: http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shi...html?call=SLKR

It should be docking at Halifax, NS (in Canada) some time tonight or tomorrow.

Then it should arrive to the NY/NJ BMW VDC some time on Saturday.

Where are you getting information that the Fidelio will dock in Halifax and that it was delayed one day?

I know. Now it is coming in on Sunday, although from a practical standpoint it probably won't make that big of a change in schedule when it comes to delivery. Even though it is a 2 day delay, it is over a weekend when likely nothing would have happened anyway. I think it really means a 1 day delay.

The ship should be heading to Bayonne, NJ. There are no car ports in NYC.

It is NJ -- they list it as New York (no offense intended to people in NJ, but NYC is more internationally recognizable I am sure).

Actually, car ships are unloaded/loaded 7 days a week. And being that BMWs VPC is literally right next the vessel, plenty can still be done.

Yup, docked a few hours ago. Hopefully it leaves Halifax on time and makes it's way to the Jersey VDC.

My CA is going to check if they have an iPhone 4 snap-in adapter yet and if so get it ready for me so I'll have it during delivery.

Unless the tracking is off, the ship appears to be near long beach right now.

Perhaps I can take a quick drive over near the water and get a pic of the ship as it passes.
