Tropical Weather Update
September 2, 2007 -- 2:00 p.m. (EST)
Royal Caribbean International continues to closely monitor the path and progress of Hurricane Felix to ensure our guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises, and to make certain our ships steer clear of the storm.
Our foremost concern is the safety of our guests and crew members.
Given Hurricane Felix's location and projected path, Royal Caribbean is currently altering the itinerary of one ship.
Sailing from the Port of Galveston
Rhapsody of the Seas, which departs the Port of Galveston Sunday, September 2, is sailing a modified itinerary with a port call to Key West, Florida, Tuesday, instead of Montego Bay, Jamaica, before continuing its itinerary as scheduled, with calls to Cartagena, Colombia; through the Panama Canal; Punta Arenas, Costa Rica; Huatulco, Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas and concluding at Ensenada, Mexico. The ship's itinerary is subject to change based on possible storm-related damage to Mexico. Should the aftermath of Hurricane Felix prevent the ship from visiting these locations, alternative ports of call would be sought.
At this time, no other Royal Caribbean ships are being adversely impacted by tropical weather. We will continue to closely monitor weather conditions and update this information at 2 p.m. E.S.T. Monday
