After soaking Hispaniola and other nearby islands, TS Emily had become a remnant low but there was a high chance that it could regenerate into a tropical cyclone. One week from its initial formation, Emily is once again a Tropical Depression as it now dumps heavy rains on the Bahamas. Some cruise itineraries had been impacted and cruise lines are once again monitoring the storm for any additional changes.
Currently, sailings for Norwegian Sky (8/5/11), Norwegian Jewel (8/6/11) and Norwegian Gem (8/7/11) will continue as scheduled. However, should weather conditions change, some of these itineraries may be modified.
