Cruise News: Hurricane Irene Impacts Princess Cruises' NY/Brooklyn Departure Today

Hurricane Irene Update—Caribbean Princess August 27 departure from New York/Brooklyn Cruise Terminal

To minimize the effects of Hurricane Irene on Caribbean Princess' departure from New York today, Saturday, August 27, the ship's arrival time in New York has been moved up one hour earlier to 6 am.

Cruise check-in will now begin at 10 am and not 1 pm as originally scheduled. Passengers have been contacted and advised to arrive at the cruise terminal as early as possible.

For passengers planning to drive to the port and park at the pier, we have been advised that the parking area at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will most likely be closed due to anticipated flooding. It is recommend that passengers instead make arrangements to be dropped off at the cruise terminal. Please note that Princess Cruises cannot be held responsible for any damages to vehicles parked at the pier.

We are continuing to monitor the path of the storm and will alter the ship's itinerary if necessary. Passengers will be kept fully advised of any changes required.
