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.
