Tropical Storm Sandy Alters More Cruise Ship Itineraries

The National Hurricane Center warns that Tropical Storm Sandy is likely to strengthen into a hurricane today and hurricane warnings have been issued for Jamaica and portions of Cuba. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Haiti and islands in the central and northwestern Bahamas chain.

In addition to the Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines ships with itinerary alterations reported on earlier, Norwegian Cruise Line has issued these itinerary changes:
Norwegian Pearl called at Cozumel today and will visit Costa Maya tomorrow. Scheduled port calls in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman are cancelled. 
Norwegian Jewel is in Freeport, Bahamas today instead of at Norwegian's private island, Great Stirrup Cay, which is a tender port, and will visit Charleston, SC instead of Nassau, Bahamas on Friday. 
Norwegian Sky will remain at sea on Friday, bypassing its scheduled call at Great Stirrup Cay.
