Due to ongoing recovery efforts on Caribbean islands affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, Norwegian Cruise Line has announced it will modify all of Norwegian Escape’s eastern Caribbean cruises to a western Caribbean itinerary for the remainder of 2017.
The following are the seven-day departures available through the end of the year:
- September 23, 30
- 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 Line’s 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.
The updated Norwegian Escape itineraries are now available on www.ncl.com.
