We continue to closely monitor the recovery efforts in Grand Turk, San Juan, St Thomas and St Maarten for potential impacts to cruises departing in November and beyond, the cruise line said in the latest statement on its website. Based on the level of progress in these ports, we will make additional itinerary changes, if necessary, approximately 3 - 4 weeks prior to departure. We sincerely apologize for the disruption caused by the most recent hurricanes and look forward to welcoming our guests on board.

The news follows Royal Caribbeans decision to cancel its September 30 cruise out of San Juan on Adventure of the Seas to aid in evacuation and humanitarian efforts in Puerto Rico. Carnival had previously reported that its pier in San Juan sustained heavy damage, with repairs still ongoing.

Cruises to Cuba, however, are returning to normal, with Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line and MSC Cruises resuming calls at Havana. Victory Cruise Lines reports that it will be able to resume circumnavigations of Cuba starting in early 2018.
