Royal Caribbean International (www.cruisingpower.com) continues to closely monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Bertha. Due to heavy winds and unfavorable sea conditions, two ship itineraries were changed over the past few days.
Allure of the Seas, cancelled its scheduled call at Nassau, The Bahamas, on Monday, August 4. Instead the ship spent the day at sea. The line will extend the ship's scheduled port call at St. Thomas, U.S.V.I., from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 6. Allure of the Seas is sailing a seven-night, eastern Caribbean itinerary, which departed roundtrip from Port Everglades on Sunday, August 3.
Also due to heavy winds and unfavorable sea conditions, Enchantment of the Seas cancelled its scheduled call at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas, on Sunday, August 3, 2014. Enchantment of the Seas was on a three-day Bahamas cruise, which returned to Port Canaveral as scheduled on Monday morning, August 4, 2014.
The line said the safety of guests and staff and crew is the top priority so it will continue to monitor the storm and adjust itineraries as needed.
