Royal Caribbean has made a change to Freedom of the Seas' cruise that leaves today to avoid the path of Hurricane Matthew.
Royal Caribbean announced it will replace a scheduled stop in its private island of CocoCay in The Bahamas with a stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico instead.
@sttsxm Hi Meg. Freedom is going to San Juan, Puerto Rico instead of the Bahamas. Have a great cruise!— Royal Caribbean (@RoyalCaribbean) October 2, 2016
In addition to Freedom of the Seas, Allure of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas have had their itineraries changed this week.
