Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: August 20, 2017

20 Aug 2017
Matt Hochberg

Welcome to this week's edition of the Royal Caribbean post round-up, where we summarize all of the Royal Caribbean news and information from this week into one handy-dandy post! There is plenty of great content to enjoy, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's round-up!

This week, Royal Caribbean was forced to make changes to upcoming Allure of the Seas itineraries due to a speed restriction.  

It seems one of the propellers is damaged, which necessitated a reduction in speed and that resulted in more time to get from one port to another.

In addition, Royal Caribbean cancelled the January 21, 2018 sailing in order to take time to fix the cause of the speed restriction.  The work will take one week, and cruises will resume with the January 28, 2018 sailing.
