Due to Hurricane Bill, there have recently been some minor changes to Cruise Itineraries announced on sailings departing from Northeastern US Cities. Cruising is the best option during hurricane season because the ships change itinerary and go around the storm. That can’t happen with land based Caribbean vacations.
As of now Carnival is stating that there will not be any impacts to itineraries from Hurricane Bill for all of the Carnival ships including the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore and the Carnival Triumph out of NYC.
The Norwegian Majesty and Norwegian Dawn left Bermuda early today to avoid Hurricane Bill. NCL is stating that they are not anticipating any impacts to the the NCL Bermuda sailings departing this weekend: Norwegian Spirit from Boston on August 21; Norwegian Majesty from Baltimore on August 23; and Norwegian Dawn from New York on August 23.
Royal Caribbean has announced that the Explorer of the Seas which departs Cape Liberty on Thursday, August 20, will sail a revised itinerary, with its ports of call simply reordered. The ship will visit San Juan, Puerto Rico, Sunday; Philipsburg, St. Maarten, Monday; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, Tuesday; and Kings Wharf, Bermuda, Thursday.
Royal Caribbean is also telling those on the Grandeur of the Seas sailing on August 22nd to stay tuned for possible itinerary changes.
