Part of the reason we chose the Legend out of Tampa was for the 4 port days on a 7 day cruise. Sure it diminished the fun to loose 3 ports and only get Ocho Rios in exchange but I agree with the safety first approach. It did, however, seem like the Legend got the short end of the stick. Most ships still had the same number of stops just not the ones they planned.

At first most people were understanding about the change, especially after waves made tendering back from Grand Cayman very dangerous. We witnessed several injuries and at lease 2 ambulances were dispatched to one of the tender piers used by Celebrity.

Later in the week after the storm had moved away there was a lot of grumbling about the fact that we canceled ports that were now sunny and clear.

Well, I'm making the most of it. We booked our next cruise while on board and have already sent in my request for our 20% discount.
