Royal Caribbean is closely monitoring Hurricane Irma and how it is impacting cruise ships. Before Irma even arrived in the Caribbean the cruise line began altering itineraries to keep all guests and crew safe.

Royal Caribbean will no doubt continue to make sailing adjustments and possibly more cruise cancellations. Another major factor is Florida and the impact Irma has on major cruise ports including Port Miami, Port Canaveral, Port Everglades and Port of Tampa.
