Default Latest Hurricane release from RCCL

As of 3:00 PM today, this is the latest release from RCCL on itinary changes, etc.:


Tropical Weather Update

September 26, 2004 - 3 p.m.



Royal Caribbean International continues to closely monitor Hurricane Jeanne and its aftermath to ensure our guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises and to make certain our ships steer clear of any storms.

The safety and comfort of our guests are always the foremost concern of Royal Caribbean International. We are pleased to report that our ships in the Caribbean are sailing in calm seas and warm, sunny weather.

Because of Hurricane Jeanne, Royal Caribbean International is altering the itineraries of several ships. Itinerary changes are listed below. We will update this information three times daily, at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Royal Caribbean International is currently unable to bring ships to Coco Cay, Bahamas, our private island. Storm-related repairs are ongoing and should be complete in the coming weeks.

Additionally, storm recovery efforts in Freeport, Bahamas, and Georgetown, Cayman Islands, prevent us from visiting those ports. We look forward to returning to those locations in the very near future.

Ships scheduled to make port calls at these locations in the coming weeks will make alternative port calls or spend the day at sea.

Sovereign of the Seas, currently on its September 24 sailing, will not make its port call at Miami, Florida, today. Instead, the ship will spend today at sea. Due to the aftermath of Hurricane Jeanne, this itinerary is subject to change.
