Royal Caribbean changes Freedom of the Seas December 28 sailing due to propulsion problem

24 Dec 2014

Royal Caribbean has changed the itinerary it had originally planned for Freedom of the Seas due to a propulsion problem that the ship is suffering from.

As with the last few sailings, Royal Caribbean has changed the itinerary due to a "small restriction on her top speed".  All scheduled ports on the itinerary – CocoCay, Montego Bay, GeorgeTown and Cozumel – will remain, with adjustments made to the time spent in port.

The new itinerary will have Freedom of the Seas

  • December 28: Depart Port Canaveral at 4:30pm
  • December 29: CocoCay from 7:30am to 3:30pm
  • December 30: Sea Day
  • December 31: Montego Bay from 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • January 1: Grand Cayman from 7:00am to 2:30pm
  • January 2: Cozumel from 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • January 3: Sea Day
  • January 4: Return to Port Canaveral at 6:00am

As with other altered cruises due to this propulsion problem, and we've heard Royal Caribbean has given its passengers onboard credit as an apology for the change.  A letter with the credit amount will be delivered to each stateroom.
