The ship is still scheduled to depart its homeport in Southampton, UK on September 22 but the ports of calls will be altered. In the details sent to cruisers, it stated “We will no longer call to Rotterdam, Vigo, or the Azores (Ponta Delgado). Instead, we will now call to Zeebrugge on Saturday, September 23, 2017, and to Bermuda (West End), on Wednesday, October 4. In addition, we will now call to Paris/Normandy (Le Havre) on Sunday, September 24 rather than on Monday, September 25, and to Lisbon on Wednesday, September 27 rather than on Thursday, September 28, and call times have been amended.”

To make up for the revised timetable Princess Cruises will be giving guests $100 of onboard credit which will automatically be added to the ship account. The cruise line has assured people that there is no threat to passenger and crew safety and all services are working as normal.

Caribbean Princess will still arrive in Port Everglades, Florida on October 7. The ship is 113,000 gross tons and can carry over 3,000 guests at double occupancy.
