Allure of the Seas which is one of the largest cruise ships in the world has been forced to alter its Eastern Caribbean itinerary due to propulsion issues.
Allure of the Seas which is an oasis-class vessel for Royal Caribbean is suffering from a propulsion issue and the itinerary has been altered. A letter was sent out to guests booked on upcoming sailings and a reader of the well known Royal Caribbean Blog site sent in a letter which stated the following:
“Allure of the Seas currently has a speed restriction which will result in slight adjustments to your itinerary. For your convenience, the updates are noted below. The new port of San Juan, Purto Rico offers the opportunity to visit the culturally rich city of Old Suan Juan and the lush rain forest El Yunque. We apologize for this change, but have no doubt that your vacation will be nothing short of amazing. We can’t wait to welcome you onboard.”
It is not known how many itineraries are being changed and when the propulsion issue will be fixed. With the letter going out to people booked on upcoming sailings then most likely it could take some time.
If you are booked for Allure of the Seas on Eastern Caribbean sailing would be best to keep in touch with the cruise line regarding the ports so you can plan and be prepared for your cruise vacation.
Allure of the Seas is 225,282 gross tons and is the second Oasis-class vessel. The ship can carry 5,400 guests at double occupancy.
