Tropical Storm Bonnie is causing some minor impacts to cruise itineraries. TS Bonnie referred to as “Rain with a Name” by @wxBrad , has forced the Carnival Pride, Carnival Destiny, and Grandeur of the Seas to make minor itinerary changes in order to avoid the storm. The Carnival Destiny is swapping ports, while the Grandeur of the Seas and Carnival Pride are skipping a port. Currently, Norwegian Cruise Line is reporting that they have not modified any itineraries due to the storm. These minor changes in itinerary only proves why cruising is a better option than land-based vacations during hurricane season. If you are on a ship, they will sail around the storm. If you’re at a resort on an island, you are either stuck or have to go home early when a storm is approaching.
