Royal Caribbean Sending Two Cruise Ships on Humanitarian Missions in the Caribbean

Yesterday we reported that Royal Caribbean had canceled one sailing so the ship can be used on a humanitarian mission in the Caribbean due to damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

The cruise line is now doubling their efforts and has canceled a cruise on a second ship so they can send two ships to help out in the efforts in the Caribbean. The canceled cruises are:

  • Empress of the Seas – September 13 sailing
  • Majesty of the Seas – September 15 sailing

Royal Caribbean gave the following statement regarding these two canceled cruises for humanitarian missions:

“We are cancelling these cruises to utilize the ship for humanitarian efforts in areas of the Caribbean with urgent need.

For both the Empress sailing on 9/13 and the Majesty sailing on 9/15, the cruise fare and fees will be 100% refunded to the original form of payment, and we are also offering a 25% future cruise credit, based on the cruise fare, if a new cruise is booked in the next 30 days. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call 1-800-256-6649.”

In addition to the canceled cruises, Royal Caribbean also made the following adjustments to itineraries due to Hurricane Irma.

Allure of the Seas:  September 10 Western Caribbean cruise

The new departure date will be on Wednesday, 9/13 and we will sail a 4-night itinerary, with an overnight in Nassau, Bahamas. We will continue to watch the path of the storm, and if Nassau as a port of call is no longer an option, we will instead call on our private island of Labadee, Haiti, which has weathered the storm well.

We know this change is disappointing, and we are truly sorry for the storm’s impact on your vacation. Should you choose to sail with us we will provide you with a refund of 50% of your cruise fare paid in the form of a refundable onboard credit, and an additional 50% future cruise credit.

Harmony of the Seas: September 9 Eastern Caribbean cruise

The new departure date will now be on Tuesday, 9/12 and we will sail a 4-night itinerary to Cozumel, Mexico. We know this change is disappointing, and we are truly sorry.

Oasis of the Seas: September 10 Eastern Caribbean cruise

Enchantment of the Seas: September 11 Bahamas cruise

The new departure date will be Tuesday, 9/12 and we will sail a 3-night itinerary to the Bahamas. Given the unpredictability of Irma, we will advise if there are any changes to the itinerary as soon as we know. We know this change is disappointing, and we are truly sorry. Should you choose to sail with us we will provide you with a refund of 25% of your cruise fare paid in the form of a refundable onboard credit.
