If you’ve been following the events of the past few days, you’ve probably seen the huge relief efforts being made by Royal Caribbean to provide aide in The Bahamas. Something that may have gone unnoticed, however, is the interesting signage attached to the crates of supplies leaving Florida ports. The signs say “Relief Supplies” accompanied by the six logos of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. cruise lines. Except not quite. The fifth logo seen on this signage is that of “SkySea Cruise Line”, which was 35% owned by RCCL between the years of 2016 and 2018. In March 2018, they announced that the final sailing for this brand will be in August 2018, and the brand has subsequently been “closed”. Therefore, why would it be on this signage? My best guess is that this is an old template from the last hurricane relief efforts by RCCL, from at least one year ago, and it was not edited or reviewed. In fact, it is almost definitely from before July 2018, the month in which RCCL bought a 67% share in Silversea Cruises, who are not mentioned on this sign. It’s not a huge deal, simply overlooked, but it is interesting to see that it was missed, even with such a simple fix of replacing SkySea Cruise Line with Silversea Cruises. Let me know what you think of this slight mistake in their signage. Also, I’d just like to say how incredible and prompt their generous response to this disaster has been. A huge well done to Royal Caribbean and all those raising funds to go towards these relief efforts!
Hello all! Hope all is well with each of you and you are safe and sound. We are scheduled to depart on Harmony of the Seas 15 Sept 2019 out of Port Canaveral. I have been stressing about storms around that area or storms around the ports. On average, how often are cruises cancelled altogether because of hurricanes? Do they ever change departure ports because of damage at an original departure port? We are travelling from Australia and have had this trip planned for 1.5 years now. Our family is meeting us in Port Canaveral. It looks like some itineraries have changed over the past week due to Dorian and there may be some changes over the next week or so. I'm just thinking about a worst-case scenario situation such as leaving from Miami instead of Port Canaveral, or even Tampa, or Jacksonville. Maybe leaving on a different date or staying longer. I know there's a lot of information out there already. Finding it is the fun part. Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
