Major cruise line operators have changed the
itineraries of some cruises to avoid Hurricane Dorian.
Cruise ships sailing from Port Canaveral have changed their itineraries to avoid the tropical storm.
Dorian has forced cruise lines to shift their
ships out of the storm path, while at the same time shutting down operations at
private islands. In addition to voyages changed into longer trips, Royal
Caribbean also closed down CocoCay, the theme-park like island in the Bahamas with
a water slide that rises 148.5 feet above the mostly flat island. CocoCay won’t
be taking any cruise ships though Tuesday, September 3.
Beginning Friday morning, October 26, we may start experiencing the effects of Sandy, the mega-storm that will pass by the east coast on his journey north to Mid-Atlantic or New England. Although Port Canaveral Transportation do not anticipate any interruption of transportation service and Sail Schedules, we will be keeping close eye on the storm and will be ready to respond to any changes in the weather conditions. We advise all passengers to check periodically on the NOAA advisory page or The Tracking Map at Weather Underground. We would like also to recommend passengers to check with their cruise line representatives and the Ship Tracking map on our page for latest updates.
