Winter Storm Causes Royal Caribbean Ship Arrival Delays

Is it snowing at your house? Surprisingly, here in the south we've had what the weather people term a "snow shower" and we awoke to a winter wonderland. It's not much accumulation and will no doubt all melt as the day warms up.

Up north, however, things are far worse. Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas are delaying their arrival and turnaround in northeastern homeports by a full day each.

Grandeur of the Seas will arrive in Baltimore and turn around on Monday, instead of Sunday, and Anthem of the Seas will delay its arrival and turnaround at Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ until Tuesday, instead of Monday.

What that means is that passengers now on the ships will have an extra day added on board and passengers anticipating the next cruise will have their voyages shortened by a day. Royal Caribbean is notifying booked passengers about the delayed departures and is working on revised itineraries. No doubt they will offer some compensation for the shortened sailings.
