Hurricane Michael forces cruise ships on Western Caribbean itineraries to reroute

A growing Hurricane Michael on Monday forced cruise ships carrying more than 10,000 passengers to alter course. 

Cruise giant Carnival's 2,980-passenger Carnival Glory skipped a call at Grand Cayman on Monday and remained at sea to avoid the storm. The ship departed Miami on Saturday on a seven-day voyage to the Western Caribbean. 

Also shifting course on Monday was Carnival's 2,754-passenger Carnival Freedom, which departed Galveston, Texas on Saturday on a seven-day Caribbean voyage. The vessel skipped a call at Mahogany Bay, Honduras and remained a sea. It'll call at Cozumel, Mexico on Tuesday and Belize on Wednesday.

A third Carnival ship, the 2,754-passenger Carnival Triumph, will sail an altered itinerary from New Orleans after it departs from that city late Monday. The vessel will reverse its scheduled calls, stopping Wednesday at Progreso, Mexico and Thursday in Cozumel.

The approaching storm also has forced Norwegian Cruise Line to alter the itinerary of one of its biggest ships, the 4,248-passenger Norwegian Getaway. The Miami-based vessel will call Tuesday at Falmouth, Jamaica, in lieu of Roatan, Honduras. On Wednesday, it'll substitute a call at Grand Cayman for Costa Maya, Mexico.

 Royal Caribbean to celebrate 50th anniversary on world's largest cruise ship

Royal Caribbean is throwing itself a blow-out anniversary party, and you're all invited. 
The Miami-based cruise giant has revealed plans for a "50 Years Bold Birthday Cruise" to celebrate its 50th anniversary, which is taking place this year. 

Kicking off in Miami on November 2, 2019, the one-week voyage will take place on Royal Caribbean's new Symphony of the Seas — the world's largest cruise ship.

Billed as the "biggest, boldest birthday party ever," the cruise will feature special events and surprise performers, according to the line. It'll also include a stop at Royal Caribbean's soon-to-be-revamped private island, CocoCay, along with St. Maarten & San Juan.

Unveiled in March, the 228,081-ton Symphony of the Seas is built on the same platform as Royal Caribbean's 2-year-old Harmony of the Seas, the previous size leader in cruising. But it eclipses its sibling by more than 1,000 tons and offers several new features.

Among the additions are a first-of-its-kind, two-deck-high family suite with a slide between floors, a revamped Boardwalk amusement area, a new laser tag attraction and a new-for-Royal Caribbean seafood restaurant. Symphony also has more cabins than Harmony

Rates begin at $1194 per person (+taxes) for inside cabins.  Deposits are $250 pp.
