Royal Caribbean International Hurricane Ivan Update

Hurricane Ivan Update
September 9, 2004 -- 7 p.m.
We will update this information on cruisingpower.com three times daily â?? at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises are closely monitoring the path and progress of Hurricane Ivan to ensure our guests enjoy safe and comfortable cruises and to make certain our ships steer clear of the storm.
We also are continuing to monitor our operations resulting from Hurricane Frances.
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 International and Celebrity Cruises are currently unable to bring their ships to Port Canaveral, Florida; Freeport, Bahamas; and Coco Cay, Bahamas, Royal Caribbeanâ??s private island.

Given Hurricane Ivanâ??s location and projected path, we are currently altering the itineraries of several Royal Caribbean International ships and of one Celebrity Cruises ship.
