Cruise lines continue to make more changes to cruises this weekend and early next week due to Hurricane Dorian. Cruise lines that have made changes so far include Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, and MSC Cruises.
Hurricane Dorian currently has maximum sustained winds of 110 mph and is expected to gain strength and become a major hurricane later today. Since the forecast for the storm continues to shift, cruise lines have been making daily adjustments to cruises that were scheduled to depart this weekend and early next week.
