You have to understand, and as a typical Basher for RCL, you don't. If you can't fly the day before you might want to consider a land vacation instead. Flying same day during hurricane season is a 50/50 chance. It might work it might not. Not to mention all the airlines issues even with no hurricanes. Have guts and take a gamble I guess. What is hard to understand about that.
Could have RCL refused authorities and stay until normal depart time? Or Ask authorities for an additional hour 6:30 instead of 5:30 to see what other cruisers stroll in. Irene might have already been getting to close for comfort.
Good news for this weekend cruisers and cruiselines...Katia will not make landfall she will stay at sea according to Weather channel.
I know Cruisemates very own DTW would never be one of the 150 cruisers not onboard. DTW is first cruiser onboard and already ate lunch, had drinks at the pool bar, unpacked, made new friends, showered and ready for dinner all before 5pm.
Peace Out Kids.....
