BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Due to Tropical Storm Dorian, and the threat of a Hurricane Dorian, Royal Caribbean has adjusted the itinerary of Port Canaval homeported Harmony of the Seas, one of the largest cruise ships in the world, that set sail Monday on a 7-day cruise of the Caribbean.
Instead of sailing the original Eastern Caribbean voyage, the ship will sail the Western Caribbean now. Harmony of the Seas will now go to travel to CocoCay, Cozumel, Roatan and Costa Maya.
The ship will then return to Port Canaveral on September 1.
The National Hurricane Center has forecast that tropical storm conditions are expected in the Lesser Antilles, the Caribbean islands comprising Barbados, Antigua, St. Kitts, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Dorian is heading west at 14 miles per hour, has maximum winds of 50 miles per hour and could become a Category 1 hurricane with winds increasing to 75 miles per hour by Wednesday before hitting Puerto Rico.
