  1. IS THE RC Adventures of the Sea cancelled due to puerto rico? WHY HAVENT THEY cancelled? Airport is closed so no one can fly in or out. There’s no way to get there, and there’s no power.
    Why would RC not cancel?

  2. We are suppose to leave for a cruise September 21st. Was wondering if it was still on or cancelled. We are suppose to leave from Mami to Cozumel Its a 5 day cruise

  3. We are currently on the Carnival Magic. We were looking forward to the original ports but the altered route is good too. Safety first…?
