I think something is going on. Princess destroyed the cruise I am going on July 28th. They changed St. Maarten with Tortola and from a full day at port to only half a day. And they changed the times for all of the other ports as well (no beach time in San Juan). In short the changes suck.
** DEPARTURE TIME FROM NEW YORK REVISED AND ITINERARY MODIFIED **
Please be advised that due to operational reasons, the departure time from
New York has been changed from 5:00 pm to 4:00 pm. In addition, the port
call to St. Maarten on August 1, 2008 has been cancelled and replaced with a
port call to Tortola on August 2 from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm. Also, the port
timings for San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk have been amended and are now
San Juan: July 31, 2008 from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm
St. Thomas: August 1, 2008 from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
Grand Turk: August 3, 2008 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Shore excursions for Tortola (and all other ports on this voyage) may be
pre-reserved online via the Cruise Personalizer at www.princess.com
We look forward to welcoming you aboard Caribbean Princess!
