Royal Caribbean Intl continues to monitor the path and progress of Tropical Storm Maria 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.

The Port of San Juan is currently closed and it is not known when it will reopen. We encourage guests on the Sunday, September 11, sailing of Serenade of the Seas monitor the Royal Caribbean website and their airlines for any additional updates regarding the storm and the status of the port.
