Cruise itineraries affected by Hurricane Danny

By ,   August 22, 2015 ,   Accidents

At least three cruise lines were affected by Hurricane Danny. It is the first hurricane this season to touch down in the Atlantic ocean.

Carnival and Royal Caribbean altered ships' itineraries in Eastern Caribbean to avoid the storm of Category 2, heading towards Leeward Islands (Saint Maarten, Saint Kitts, Saint Thomas). 

Carnival Glory and Royal Caribbean's ships Adventure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas will instead call at ports in Western Caribbean.

The storm has 100 miles per hour maximum sustained winds. It is expected to weaken today (August 23, Sunday) into a tropical storm.

The list of itinerary changes includes the 7-night cruise aboard Carnival Glory, scheduled to depart from Miami yesterday, August 22. It will no longer visit Half Moon Cay, San Juan, Grand Turk and St. Thomas. Instead, the vessel will call at Belize, Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Roatan.

Royal Caribbean's Adventure of the Seas was scheduled to leave out of San Juan yesterday, August 22. The Adventure will not stop in Antigua, Barbados, St. John and St. Lucia. The new itinerary includes Aruba, Bonaire, St. Maarten and St. Thomas.

Oasis of the Seas' August 22 voyage, departing from Fort Lauderdale FL, was forced to miss its Eastern Caribbean ports Costa Maya, Cozumel and Nassau.

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) was the latest to make changes in an effort to avoid Danny. The Miami-based Norwegian Getaway will call at Cozumel, Nassau and Ocho Rios instead of its original itinerary.
