Royal Caribbean Modifies Allure of the Seas Cruises Due to Propulsion Issues

By ,   May 6, 2019 ,   Accidents

Royal Caribbean modified the itineraries for voyages on its Allure of the Seas due to a technical issue. The sailings were altered because of a technical matter with one of three azipods of the vessel. Allure OTS will have to sail at a reduced speed so port calls were slightly altered.

Allure OTS offers 3 different itineraries over the next 5 months. While some only had port times adjusted, others replaced a visit to St Thomas Island with San Juan Puerto Rico.

Any shore trips that were booked through the cruise line for port stops that were switched will be refunded.

Allure Of The Seas cruise ship

Allure of the Seas relocated to Fort Lauderdale FL on May 5 and began sailing weeklong Caribbean cruises. The vessel spent the past six months sailing from Miami FL.
