Tahitian Princess Alters Itineraries, Avoids Cyclone
One ship operating in the ordinarily oh-so-calm South Pacific -- not normally subjected to the annual ravages of the Atlantic/Caribbean's hurricane season -- had to make a rare itinerary adjustment this week. Rarotonga, part of New Zealand's Cook Islands and a regular port of call on Tahitian Princess' 10-night South Pacific itinerary, was right in the path of a Category 2 cyclone.

Though the storm did not make a direct hit, it did batter outlying areas earlier today, and damage to the island is still being assessed. Tahitian Princess is scheduled to call there next on March 3.

Princess reports that as a result of the approaching cyclone, passengers on the ship's February 11 sailing called at Rangiroa, in the Marquesas islands, instead.

The islands of French Polynesia were not impacted by the cyclone.
