The new ports of call are Cozumel, Mexico; Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras; Costa Maya, Mexico; and Harvest Caye, Belize, a representative of the cruise line tells Travel Agent.

The following are the seven-day departures available through the end of the year:

  • October 7, 14, 21, 28
  • November 4, 11, 18, 25
  • December 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

Norwegian reports that its ports of call Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands and St. Maarten were particularly hard-hit by the storm. The line is also working with local partners to assess any potential damages in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Norwegian Cruise Lines ships have otherwise resumed normal operations.

While we hope that our affected ports-of-call are operational again soon, we have the flexibility to alter future itineraries to ensure a great guest experience, if needed, the cruise line wrote in a statement on its website.
