Royal Caribbean International was expected to dispatch some of its cruise ships to St. Thomas and St. Maarten in a bid to not only provide supplies but transport evacuees following the passage of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean.
The Adventure of the Seas was expected to make a humanitarian stop in St. Maarten on Sunday and Majesty of the Seas will make humanitarian calls in St. Thomas and St. Maarten to provide supplies and also assist in transporting evacuees in St. Maarten to safety, Cruise Industry News said on Saturday.
It said the Sept. 15 cruise aboard the Majesty of the Seas has been cancelled, adding that the ship will be utilized for rescue efforts in the Caribbean.
The Empress of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas are also ready to assist Key West and Tampa once the impact of the storm is known, Royal Caribbean said.
