Royal Caribbean cancels more Labadee port calls

Royal Caribbean has cancelled calls at its private Haitian resort Labadee until the end of April.

Last week, Royal Caribbean emailed guests to say it had suspended calls to Labadee until 22 March because of the ‘evolving situation in Haiti’.

The cruise line has now told guests on sailings from 23 March until the end of April that there will be a change to their itinerary. Depending on the itinerary, affected cruises will call at Royal Caribbean’s private island Perfect Day at CocoCay, visit an alternative port or have an extra day at sea.

Royal Caribbean said the cancellations are precautionary, adding: “Your safety is our top priority.”

The latest round of cancellations is up to and including Symphony of the Seas’ 28 April departure, where Labadee has been replaced with a cruising day.

Symphony of the Seas’ and Oasis of the Seas’ calls at Labadee have been replaced with calls at either Falmouth, Jamaica or Perfect Day at CocoCay.

Independence of the Seas has replaced Labadee calls with Grand Turk, Grand Cayman, Bimini or Perfect Day at CocoCay.

The US State Department and the UK Foreign Office both warn against travel to Haiti because of continuing unrest in the capital Port-au-Prince.

The US has told citizens in Haiti to leave immediately and a Government-chartered flight repatriated 47 passengers on Sunday.
