As Hurricane Gonzalo hits Bermuda, the Bermuda Government has requested that all cruise ship arrivals be temporarily suspended.
Royal Caribbean issued the following statement concerning the Explorer of the Seas October 17th sailing.
Due to Hurricane Gonzalo, the local authority in Bermuda
has asked that tourists not attempt to visit the island over
the next few days while recovery efforts are underway.
Because of this, Explorer of the Seas next sailing that
departs Cape Liberty, New Jersey, on Saturday, October 18,
will not be able to call to Bermuda.
Explorer of the Seas will now call to Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Monday, October 20, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and St. John, New Brunswick, on Tuesday, October 21, from 09:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. We recommend that guests pack accordingly for the weather in the new ports of call, which differs greatly from that in Bermuda.
We appreciate that this is a significant change to the original itinerary and we appreciate our guests' understanding and cooperation. As a gesture of goodwill, and to thank our guests their understanding, Royal Caribbean will provide each stateroom with an onboard credit. A letter with the credit amount will be delivered to guests' stateroom.
Should a guest decide not to sail, we will provide them with a future cruise certificate for 25% of the cruise fare paid for their sailing. This certificate may be used for a future cruise on any Royal Caribbean ship.
However, we hope that guests will choose to sail with us. We have a wonderful program of entertainment, food and activities to offer, as well as two beautiful ports of call.
