Given the storm's location and for the comfort and safety of our guests and crew, Royal Caribbean felt it necessary to alter the currently scheduled Eastern Caribbean itinerary for Allure of the Seas September 3 to a Western Caribbean itinerary. The new itinerary is outlined below.
|03-Sep||Sunday||Fort Lauderdale, Florida||4:30PM|
|10-Sep||Sunday||Fort Lauderdale, Florida||6:00AM|
Pre-booked shore excursions for our previous ports of call will be cancelled and refunded to the guest’s original form of payment while onboard. Guests will also have the ability to book shore excursions for our new ports of call at the Shore Excursions desk onboard Allure of the Seas.
Royal Caribbean noted they do not expect to make any further itinerary changes, but it may happen depending on the path of the storm.
James Van Fleet will continue to offer more frequent updates on his twitter account.
