President Obama Visit Slows Miami Cruises

miami cruises On Friday, March 29, President Obama will be giving a speech at PortMiami, halting passenger traffic for a good three hours, which will delay cruise ship departures for the day.

Royal Caribbean says:

We ask that guests on the Friday, March 29, sailing of Majesty of the Seas arrive to the port between 10:30 a.m. and noon, or between 3:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Check in for this sailing will take place between these times. Majesty of the Seas’ departure time will be delayed to accommodate this event, but it will not impact the ship’s scheduled itinerary.

Carnival says:

Guests scheduled to board the Carnival Imagination for a three-day cruise departing PortMiami on Friday have been instructed to arrive between 9 a.m. and noon or from 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., with the ship departing shortly thereafter.

Norwegian says:

Nothing yet. Norwegian Cruise Line has nothing posted on their website for Norwegian Sky‘s embarkation, which departs on a three-night cruise on Friday, we will update the story when we hear. It would be safe to say they too will be delayed.

President Obama is set to speak on the economy while at the port. All Miami cruises will experience delayed departures.
