Cruise lines will sail from Florida again on Tuesday — but airports not yet fully open

Cruise lines plan to be back in operation in Florida beginning Tuesday as soon as ports reopen — but it may be difficult for travelers to make it to the state to catch their cruises.

Most major airports in Florida were closed Monday, with openings beginning on Tuesday, though airports don’t expect to be offering a full schedule of flights just yet.

Carnival Cruise Line plans to operate three sailings from Miami beginning Tuesday and one from Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades. Both ports were closed Monday, but Carnival said it expects the ports will reopen Tuesday morning. The Doral-based cruise line will operate one sailing from Orlando’s Port Canaveral and Miami’s PortMiami Wednesday.

“Guests on any cruises scheduled to depart Tuesday from South Florida have the option to cancel if they wish [and receive future cruise credit],” said Carnival spokeswoman Jennifer De La Cruz. “That has been the case for several days now. We are in constant contact with the ports to understand their status and are hopeful the ships will be able to get in [Tuesday].”

The cruise line urged passengers to contact their airlines to confirm their specific arrangements.

Below is the full list of cruises affected by Hurricane Irma:

Carnival Cruise Line

Guests on Carnival Paradise, which left the Port of Tampa on Thursday, was to depart Cozumel at 2 p.m. Monday on the way back to Tampa or Orlando. Depending on the Port of Tampa’s reopening (it was closed as of Monday), Carnival will update guests at 9 a.m. Tuesday where the ship will arrive Wednesday.

Guests can choose to be transferred to Tampa, or the Orlando airport, via a motor coach or remain in the Orlando area until the ship is repositioned to Tampa on Saturday, the cruise line said in a statement. Guests are encouraged to check Carnival’s website to confirm their sailing before traveling to port.

Royal Caribbean International, which has deployed four ships for rescue missions in the Caribbean following Irma, has canceled three upcoming sailings: Empress of the Seas’ Wednesday sailing to Cuba, Majesty of the Seas’ Friday Bahamas cruise and Majesty of the Seas’ Monday charter cruise to the Bahamas.

For the non-chartered sailings, Royal Caribbean will offer a full refund and 25 percent future cruise credit. Passengers on the charter sailing should contact Thirty One Gifts.

The following Royal Caribbean sailings have been modified:

▪ Allure of the Seas: Scheduled to sail from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale Wednesday — instead of its original Sunday departure — on a four-night cruise to the Bahamas. The line could potentially sail to its private island in Labadee, Haiti, instead if conditions in Nassau, Bahamas are not favorable.

Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Escape, which sailed away from PortMiami last week with 4,000 displaced passengers, plans to return to Miami Thursday. The ship was to have left Cozumel at 5 p.m. Monday. The ship plans to dock in Miami once the port reopens.

Due to devastation at some Caribbean ports, the Norwegian Escape will move its upcoming eastern Caribbean sailings to western Caribbean itineraries until November.
