Royal Caribbean has issued the following statement at 6:00pm eastern time:
Royal Caribbean International is closely monitoring the path and progress of Hurricane Sandy to ensure guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises, and to make certain our ships steer clear of the storm. The safety of our guests and crew is always our foremost concern.
At this time, given Hurricane Sandy's current location and projected path, Royal Caribbean has not altered the itineraries of any ship that departs this Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. However, we encourage guests sailing on Majesty of the Seas, Monarch of the Seas, and Oasis of the Seas to monitor this website for any additional updates.
If you have not done so already, we strongly suggest guests complete their online check-in as soon as possible, including the section on your preferred method of contact while traveling. Royal Caribbean will continue to closely monitor weather conditions and will update this information again tomorrow.
