A recently formed Tropical Storm is threatening many popular cruise destinations and ports in the eastern Caribbean. Cruise ships have also started to change itineraries to stay away from the storm.

Royal Caribbean has been the first to change itineraries starting with Explorer of the Seas. On October 13th the large vessel will cancel it’s call at St Maarten and instead will arrive into San Juan, Puerto Rico at 2 pm. The ship will then stay overnight. The ship is currently sailing a 9-day Bermuda and Caribbean cruise.

Also the Disney Cruise Line Blog posted that Disney Cruise Line has altered the Disney Magic’s itinerary. The ship is currently sailing a 7-night southern Caribbean cruise where Antigua will be replaced by Grenada. The ship will then sail to Barbados, St Lucia, then call at Antigua and finally St Kitts. Thankfully no ports are cancelled and have just been re-shuffled.

At the moment Tropical Storm Gonzalo is moving west in the south-east Caribbean at 10 mph. The current maximum sustained winds are 60 mph. The bad news is that many major cruise ports are in its path including the US and British Virgin Islands. NOAA is expecting a high possibility that Tropical Storm Gonzalo will become a Hurricane over the next 24 hours.
