Hurricane Matthew triggers cruise ship itineraries changes again

Published on : Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Hurricane-MatthewHurricane Matthew has prompted cruise ship itinerary changes yet again this week following the alteration of the routes of the cruise ships named Adventure of the Seas and Allure of the Seas that took place last week.

This week yet again, several cruise ships have had to make alterations to their routes on account of the track of Hurricane Matthew.


Some of the ships that were forced to undergo route alterations include Carnival Cruises, Disney Cruise, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean. A five-day cruise named the Carnival Elation that carried 2,000 passengers left JaxPort around 4 p.m. on Monday. Originally, the voyage was scheduled to pay visit to Half Moon Cay and Nassau.

However, now it would stop in Freeport and Key West.

One of the cruise passengers said that he had discovered about the cruise ship Elation’s itinerary change on their website. He added that his family was perfectly fine with the changes as long as they are travelling together. Several other cruise ship passengers also said that they were excited about the alterations of their cruise ship itineraries.

Some of them even said that the cruise ship route changes would be unable to be a dampener in their honeymoon plans. They sounded quite excited about their journey and some of them said that they would just wear their life jackets to stay safe.

Carnival Cruises said that they were concerned about the safety of their guests and the cruise ship would ensure that it maintains a safe distance from the storm always.

A spokesperson of Carnival Cruises said that they would like to apologize for disturbing the plans of their guests. However, they would make their best efforts to make sure that their guests can enjoy an unforgettable vacation and would take measures to see to it that the cruise ship stays away from the storm.


Other ships that are being re-routed on account of the Hurricane Matthew are Majesty of the Seas, Enchantment of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.

The Disney Dream that leaves on Monday has also altered its course.
