Weather Update - Grandeur of the Seas
November 14, 2009 Departure

Royal Caribbean continues to closely monitor the path and progress of a major weather system affecting the mid-Atlantic region. Due to this inclement weather and strong winds, the Port of Baltimore closed yesterday and reopened today at 10:00 a.m.

Since the ship cannot transit the Chesapeake Bay until the port is open, and because it takes approximately nine hours for a ship to transit the Bay and dock, Grandeur of the Seas is not expected to arrive in Baltimore until approximately 7:00 p.m.

Due to the late arrival, the following changes have been made:

Boarding for embarking guests will begin at approximately 11:00 p.m.

Departing Guests should not arrive until 9:30 PM

Guests must be Onboard by 2:00 AM Nov. 15th

Royal Caribbean asks that guests who are scheduled to sail on Grandeur of the Seas today, Saturday, November 14, not arrive at the pier until 9:30 p.m. for check in. However, please arrive no later than 2:00 a.m.

Grandeur of the Seas to arrive Bermuda, Tuesday at 8:00 AM

Regrettably, because of the delayed departure, and the time and speed needed, the ship will now arrive in Kings Wharf, Bermuda at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 17, instead of on Monday, as originally scheduled. Royal Caribbean sincerely regrets the impact weather conditions are having on the departure of this cruise.
