Hello bermuda2,

We are taking the 12-night cruise this November. Did you call RCCL to confirm this rumor? Maybe it has something to do with all the hurricanes and tropical storms?

Tortola is being dropped for our cruise 2/22/09 - Puerto Rico is still there - RCL has not notified us yet.

A question I would have - are they replacing any of these ports if they are dropped from the itinerary ???

Default Dropping Port Calls

On the 2-1-09 Explorer, they have dropped Tortola and substituted a day as sea. Do not know about any other changes.

Hello Fellowcruisers,

As far as I know, the cruise for November 30. 2008 has had only one change - an extra day at sea replacing stoping at Tortola.

Let's hope that will be all the changes.

I sure hope that is the only change. As much as I enjoy "sea" days, its nicer for me to be in a port, then I have the option of going ashore or staying onboard, sea days don't give you that.
