Caribbean Princess will be another ship that has changed to a Western Caribbean cruise. The itinerary will include Ocho Rios, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel instead of St Maarten, St Thomas and Grand Turk.

Instead of sailing the Eastern Caribbean the Norwegian Getaway will sail to Falmouth, Jamaica instead of St Maarten on October 14th. Cozumel, Mexico will then replace what would have been a sea day on October 16th.
