Cruise News Story #2

Royal Caribbean has dropped Miami, Florida from its February 2024 Anthem of the Seas itinerary. The itinerary change was communicated via email to those sailing round trip from Cape Liberty, New Jersey on February 17, 2024. 

The email read, “Great news!  We’ve modified our itinerary to give you extra time in Orlando and Nassau, Bahamas. We hope you’re as excited as we are to explore everything these destinations have to offer!”

Since Port Miami is the most popular cruise port I would imagine some guests are not as excited. 

Cruise News Story #3

Carnival Cruise Line has changed its mind regarding a beverage policy change. Carnival originally discontinued pre-cruise sales of alcohol to be delivered to staterooms, but have since changed their mind. 

Passengers embarking on 7-night sailings or longer can once again pre-purchase a bottle of alcohol to be delivered to their stateroom. 

John Heald, Carnival Cruise Line Brand Ambassador, stated in a Facebook post, “ As we continue to evaluate the different guest preferences, we are allowing the purchase of one and only one full bottle of liquor prior to embarkation for state room delivery when you arrive.”
