We remain in constant contact with port officials regarding potential port closures in South and Central Florida. Given the uncertainty of the storm’s impact, we will be shortening the duration of several upcoming cruises. Guests who sail on the shortened cruises will receive a pro-rated refund of their cruise fare. Guests who wish to cancel due to the modified cruise duration may do so and receive a future cruise credit equal to the amount of their cruise fare.
In order to provide the most accurate information, we will inform guests of any changes to our departures no later than 48 hours prior to the sailing date.
