Hurricane Florence: Royal Caribbean ship delays return to Baltimore to avoid storm

Passengers on a Baltimore-based cruise ship are getting their vacations extended by three days thanks to Hurricane Florence.

In a Thursday afternoon tweet, Royal Caribbean chief meteorologist James Van Fleet said the line’s Grandeur of the Seas won’t return to Baltimore until late Sunday — more than three days behind schedule — as it steers clear of the storm. 

The 2,446-passenger ship initially had been due back in the city early Thursday. 

Grandeur has spent the last two days hiding out from the storm in Port Canaveral, Fla., more than 800 miles south of Baltimore. 

The delayed return to Baltimore is just the latest change for passengers on Grandeur. The ship initially was scheduled to cruise to Bermuda this week but switched its destination to the Bahamas and Florida as Florence approached.
