Hurricane Gustav Alters RCI Itineraries

Aug 26, 2008, 6:30 p.m. Royal Caribbean Intl continues to closely monitor the path and progress of Hurricane Gustav to ensure that passengers aboard their vessels enjoy safe and comfortable cruises, and to make certain their ships steer clear of the storm. The safety of passengers and crew members is always RCI's foremost concern.

Given Hurricane Gustav's location and projected path, RCI is altering the itinerary of two ships:
  • Mariner of the Seas, which departed Port Canaveral, Sunday, Aug 24, will sail a revised itinerary. The ship will not be visiting Labadee, Haiti, on Tuesday; Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on Wednesday; George Town, Cayman Islands, on Thursday; or Cozumel, Mexico, on Friday. Instead, the ship will spend Tuesday at sea; visit St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, on Wednesday; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, on Thursday. The ship will be at sea Friday and Saturday as it returns to Port Canaveral, Sunday, August 31, as scheduled.
  • Grandeur of the Seas, which departed Norfolk, Virginia, Thursday, Aug 21, will not be visit Labadee, Haiti, Wednesday. Instead, the ship will spend Wednesday at sea and visit Coco Cay, Bahamas, Thursday. The ship will be at sea Friday as it returns to Norfolk, Saturday, August 30, as scheduled.
At this time, no other Royal Caribbean ships are being adversely impacted by tropical weather.
