Cruise lines sailing from Port Canaveral have started to modify their itineraries to prevent Hurricane Dorian.
Royal Caribbean has actually modified the schedules of 3 ships — Attraction of the Seas, Consistency of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas– from eastern to western Caribbean routes.
The Consistency of the Seas is based at Port Canaveral. Its brand-new schedule on the cruising that left Port Canaveral Sunday includes stops at the Royal Caribbean’s private island of Perfect Day CocoCay; Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan, Honduras; and Costa Maya, Mexico. The ship is arranged to go back to Port Canaveral Sept. 1.
Melissa Charbonneau, director of corporate credibility for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., stated the changes were made “to ensure the security and convenience of our visitors.”
” We continue to keep track of the course of Tropical Storm Dorian and potential effect to our vessels, and will interact any scheduling modifications to our guests,” Charbonneau stated in a statement.
Disney Cruise Line, on the other hand, altered the travel plan of its Port Canaveral-based Disney Dream, from an eastern Caribbean to a western Caribbean route.
According to a letter to Disney Dream guests that published on the Disney Cruise Line Blog, the Disney Dream now is set up to make drop in Grand Cayman on Tuesday; Cozumel, Mexico, on Wednesday; and Disney’s private island of Castaway Cay on Friday.
