August 26 Hurricane Statement from Royal Caribbean

Given Hurricane Irene’s current location and projected path, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises have made the following modifications:

Explorer of the Seas will now depart Cape Liberty, Bayonne, New Jersey, on Saturday, August 27 at 4:00 p.m., one hour earlier than originally scheduled.

Celebrity Summit will remain in Bermuda until 5:00 p.m. today, Friday, August 26. Royal Caribbean now anticipates that the ship will arrive in Bayonne, New Jersey, on Monday, August 29.

Because of the ship’s late arrival, Celebrity Summit’s next sailing will now depart on Monday, August 29.

CocoCay, Bahamas, was impacted by the storm. Because of this, Royal has cancelled Majesty of the Seas’ call to CocoCay on Saturday, August 27, and Monarch of the Seas’ call to CocoCay on Sunday, August 28.

Monarch of the Seas will now stay overnight in Nassau, Bahamas, arriving at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 27 and departing at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 28.

Majesty of the Seas will now spend Saturday at sea and call on Nassau, Bahamas, on Sunday, August 28 as scheduled.

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises have not altered the itineraries of any other ship that depart today, tomorrow or Sunday.
