Tropical Weather Update: September 17, 2005 -- noon

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises continue to closely monitor the path and progress of Tropical Storm Ophelia to ensure our guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises, and to make certain our ships steer clear of the storm.

The safety of our guests and crew is always the foremost concern of Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises.

Given Tropical Storm Ophelia’s location and projected path, Royal Caribbean is currently altering the itinerary of one ship and Celebrity Cruises is currently providing guidance regarding two ships:

ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL

Ships sailing from the Port of Baltimore:

UPDATED -- Grandeur of the Seas will arrive in and depart from the Port of Baltimore today, one day later than normal. The ship arrived in Baltimore at 6 a.m. this morning. Embarkation began at 11 a.m. today, and all guests should arrive at the port by 3 p.m. The ship will depart Baltimore at 3:30 p.m. today. Royal Caribbean will provide up to $100 per person for airline ticket change fees for guests needing to alter air transportation to meet the ship. Due to the ship’s delayed departure from Baltimore, its scheduled port calls in Freeport and Coco Cay, Bahamas, will be cancelled. The remainder of the itinerary will be carried out as scheduled. Guests who sail on this cruise will receive an onboard credit of $250 per stateroom.

CELEBRITY CRUISES

Ships sailing from the Port of Philadelphia:

Horizon will arrive in and depart from the Port of Philadelphia as scheduled today.

Ships sailing from Cape Liberty Cruise Port:

Zenith will arrive in and depart from Cape Liberty as scheduled today.

At this time, no other Royal Caribbean International or Celebrity Cruises ships are being adversely impacted by tropical weather. Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises will continue to closely monitor weather conditions and update this information as needed.
