Tropical Storms still causing problems

With the wind battering the UK over the past few days and the problems with the US coast line the week before last I think that we are all hoping that the weather will sort itself out and everything can return to normal.

However tropical storm Maria is still disrupting some cruise lines and they are having to make decisions to change ports for the safety of their passengers.

Reports today are saying that 

Norwegian Gem is now sailing a Bahamas and Florida itinerary, instead of its originally planned Bermuda voyage. The ship will call on Port Canaveral Tuesday, private island Great Stirrup Cay on Wednesday and Nassau on Thursday. 

Carnival have altered itineraries for a handful of ships:

The Destiny, which left Miami on Saturday for a five-night sailing, will switch the order of its calls on Ochos Rios and Grand Cayman The ship will call on the latter on Monday and the former on Tuesday, the opposite of what was originally scheduled. 

Royal Caribbean also has ships in the area, but according to the Companies Web site, only one itinerary has been altered: 

Oasis of the Seas will now call on St Thomas on Tuesday, St Maarten on Wednesday and Nassau on Friday.

I know that it can be very disappointing if you have set your heart on visiting a certain place at a certain time but I am sure that we would all rather be safe than at risk, so I am behind the cruise lines all the way when they have to make these changes and I would hope that travellers would feel the same.
