Given Tropical Storm Gustav's location and projected path, we are altering the itinerary of two ships:

August 24, will sail a revised itinerary. The ship will not be visiting
Labadee, Haiti, on Tuesday; Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on Wednesday; George
Town, Cayman Islands, on Thursday; or Cozumel, Mexico, on Friday.
Instead, the ship will spend Tuesday at sea; visit St. Thomas, U.S.
Virgin Islands, on Wednesday; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, on
Thursday. The ship will be at sea Friday and Saturday as it returns to
Port Canaveral, Sunday, August 31, as scheduled.
Ships sailing from the Port of Norfolk
- Grandeur of the Seas, which departed Norfolk, Virginia,
Thursday, August 21, will not be visit Labadee, Haiti, Wednesday.
Instead, the ship will spend Wednesday at sea and visit Coco Cay,
Bahamas, Thursday. The ship will be at sea Friday as it returns to
Norfolk, Saturday, August 30, as scheduled.
At this time, no other Royal Caribbean International ships are being adversely impacted by tropical weather.
