    Caribbean Princess
    Voyage B237
    4-day cruise
    Updated as of October 29, 2012 at 2 pm PDT

    Passengers onboard Caribbean Princess’ voyage B237 are currently in Boston during Day 2 of a 4-day cruise. Passengers have been advised that the ship plans to sail for New York tomorrow (Tuesday). The sea conditions will require the vessel to operate at significantly reduced speeds and will impact their arrival into New York. We currently expect to be delayed by at least one day and arriving no earlier than Thursday morning. As this unprecedented weather condition is constantly changing, we will continue to keep our passengers onboard updated on the situation.
    Due to the unprecedented circumstances, we understand that some passengers will wish to disembark in Boston and have provided them information how to disembark Tuesday.
    We are currently rebooking air travel for those passengers who purchased air through Princess, and are offering complimentary phone and internet services for those passengers who need to make changes to their independent travel plans.
    Caribbean Princess
    Voyage B238
    10-day cruise
    Updated as of October 29, 2012 at 2 pm PDT

    We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard for Caribbean Princess’ voyage B238 originally scheduled to embark on Wednesday, October 31.
    Due to the extreme weather conditions of Hurricane Sandy, we have advised our passengers on Caribbean Princess’ voyage B238 that we expect to embark passenger later than originally planned. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience; however the current voyage of Caribbean Princess is expected to arrive into New York at least one day late, impacting the embarkation for the following voyage.
    We tentatively expect our embarkation to be moved from Wednesday, October 31 to Thursday, November 1. Passengers will receive a per diem for any cruise days missed due to a late embarkation. As this unprecedented weather situation continues to change, we will keep passengers updated as to any new information. Those passengers who have Princess Air and/or Princess transfers will be contacted regarding their specific travel plans. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming our passengers onboard.
    Emerald Princess
    Voyage E229
    12-day cruise
    Updated as of October 27, 2012 at Noon PDT

    Passengers joined Emerald Princess yesterday in Quebec to begin their 12-day cruise ending in Ft. Lauderdale on November 7.
    Due to the presence of Hurricane Sandy and the impact it will have on the New England area, the port calls to Bar Harbor, Boston and Newport have been cancelled. Port calls to Port Saguenay and Corner Brook have been added.
    The revised itinerary is as follows:
    Saturday October 27 Quebec depart 6:00pm
    Sunday October 28 Port Saguenay 7:00am - 4:00pm
    Monday October 29 at Sea
    Tuesday October 30 Corner Brook 8:00am - 5:00pm
    Wednesday October 31 Sydney 7:00am - 4:00pm
    Thursday November 1 Halifax 7:00am - 4:00pm
    Friday November 2 at Sea
    Saturday November 3 New York 7:15am - 5:00pm
    Sunday November 4 at Sea
    Monday November 5 Charleston 9:00am - 6:00pm
    Tuesday November 6 at Sea
    Wednesday November 7 Ft. Lauderdale 7:00am

    We will continue to provide updates on Princess.com as more information becomes available.
    Ruby Princess
    Voyage R232
    7-day cruise
    Updated as of October 29, 2012 at 9:30 am PDT

    Passengers joined Ruby Princess on Sunday October 28.
    As we previously communicated, we made the decision to cancel our call to Princess Cays. As Princess Cays is a tender port, the predicted strong winds and high seas will make it impossible to carry out a safe tender operation. We do not anticipate any additional changes to our itinerary due to Hurricane Sandy. While we make every effort to sail our itineraries as originally planned, the safety and security of our passengers and crew is our highest priority and this decision, while disappointing, is necessary.

    Princess: Itinerary Changes

    Caribbean Princess tentatively plans to sail from Boston to New York at 5 p.m. Oct. 30. “The sea conditions will require the vessel to operate at significantly reduced speeds and will impact their arrival into New York,” Princess said. “We currently expect to be delayed by at least one day and arriving no earlier than Thursday morning. These have been unprecedented weather conditions and difficult to forecast and according to the latest information from New York, the Brooklyn pier is not yet operational. Once the ship is underway and more is known about the exact arrival time in New York, we will provide additional updates.”
    Passengers are being allowed to disembark in Boston. “We are currently rebooking air travel for those passengers who purchased air through Princess, and are offering complimentary phone and Internet services for those passengers who need to make changes to their independent travel plans,” Princess said. As a gesture of goodwill, Princess is offering compensation to passengers in the form of a future cruise credit. Details will be communicated to passengers onboard once the full impact on the voyage is known.
    For those on the next cruise, a 10-day Caribbean voyage, passengers will receive a per diem for any cruise days missed due to late embarkation. Passengers who have Princess air and/or transfers will be contacted regarding their travel plans.
