The company has canceled the Sunday, February 24 voyage of its Navigator, that would have been the first trip back for the vessel. According to Royal Caribbean, the reason for the cancellation was due to the poor weather conditions that had affected the progress of the vessel’s outer decks.
Royal Caribbean added they were providing their guests with compensation for the airline cancellation fees, cruise fare, and prepaid onboard amenities. Passengers with reservations on line's February 24 cruise will also receive future cruise credit.
The new plan for Navigator of the Seas is to return to service on the previously scheduled 10-day Southern Caribbean sailing departing from Miami Florida on March 1.
The ship is currently receiving a major drydock modernization in Freeport Bahamas which will add new dining options and waterslides, as well as revamp the pool deck.
