Hurricane Humberto may be far away from the eastern seaboard but the storm is still impacting cruises that are headed to Bermuda.
Carnival Cruise Line told Cruise Radio, “Our Fleet Operations Center continues to closely monitor the path of Hurricane Humberto for all of our ships that operate in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda. We are making itinerary adjustments as needed as the safety of our guests and crew is our number one priority.”

Royal Caribbean Itinerary Changes
Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas is overnighting in Bermuda on Monday, scheduled to leave on Tuesday. The company’s chief meteorologist, James Van Fleet, tweeted Monday morning, “Still thinking this tracks just north of Bermuda on Thursday. We may need to leave earlier Tuesday to get out of the way with #GrandeuroftheSeas.”
Grandeur is on a five-night cruise from Baltimore. The ship’s previous Canada/New England sailing had its itinerary disrupted because of Hurricane Dorian.
The National Hurricane Center is forecasting that the storm passes slightly to the north of Bermuda. As of Monday afternoon, the storm had winds of 85 mph and moving NNE.
