Hurricane Frances Update September 7, 2004 - 7 p.m.

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises continue to closely monitor ship operations in the wake of Hurricane Frances to ensure our guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises in calm seas and warm, sunny weather.

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

Due to damage caused by Hurricane Frances, Royal Caribbean is currently unable to bring its ships to Port Canaveral, Florida; Freeport, Bahamas; and Coco Cay, Bahamas, Royal Caribbeanâ??s private island.

We are currently altering the itinerary of several Royal Caribbean International ships and of one Celebrity Cruises ship. We will update this information three times daily â?? at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
