Costa Crociere is rerouting Caribbean destinations in winter 2017/18

October 10, 2017- After the severe hurricane storms of the last few weeks and the sometimes devastating effects on individual regions, Costa Crociere is forced to make route adjustments for planned Caribbean regions in the coming months.

The fact is: six Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico were hit particularly hard by the hurricanes. The majority of the estimated 48 Caribbean cruise ports were not damaged by the storms. After all, according to US data, the islands in the Caribbean Sea extend over an area of ​​more than a million square miles. In Jamaica, Belize and Cozumel, for example, business is normal. The southern Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao were also not hit by the storms. Nassau in the Bahamas and the private islands of Half Moon Cay and Princess Cay are also open. Most Caribbean ports of call therefore do not have to accept any route changes.

In contrast, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Grand Turk, Dominica, Puerto Rico and St. Croix were hit hard. The destinations Antigua, Dominica, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Tortola / British Virgin Islands and the Florida destination Key West are specifically omitted from Costa. The Netherlands Antilles were added to the route planning Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Other new destinations are Freeport / Bahamas and St. Vincent.
