Hurricane Joaquin has already affected changes to some cruise ship itineraries, and there is also another itinerary change, but this time for Royal Princess, as Princess Cruises has canceled its port of call to its private island.
Joaquin is now a major hurricane and has been upgraded to a cat 4, which means wind speeds will now be 140mph. It’s no wonder that the ship above will not be calling at Princess Cays today, and no doubt other cruise ships will be affected over the coming days.
Cruise ships affected by Hurricane Joaquin so far – Carnival has altered Pride and Valor, as has Norwegian with Getaway, as she was due to go to Nassau.
These are just the start of the itinerary changes, as we expect to see several more over the next few days if the hurricane keeps on its projected path and keeps growing in strentgh.
