Has there been any information posted in regards to what would happen to the cruise if the island is severely damaged by the storm? Will it be canceled, or moved to an alternate destination? Last year there were a couple bands onboard collecting earthquake relief donations for Haiti, and it seems like something similar may be in order this year if the cruise goes on as planned. It would be really awesome to see UMC do something official in that sense, regardless of whether the cruise still goes to its planned destination.
No way would the cruise be cancelled because of a port not being available.There are extra ports and the only requirement is that you stop with passengers being able to debark.Right now things are quite a mess http://www.travelagentcentral.com/cruis ... se-updates ,but by the end of September be back to normal.In the wake of Irma I would say just check your hotel booking and don't make any plans to places like Key West or Marco Island.Those places have major problems.
