Since the ship is expected to return to its original homeport after today's sailing, passengers arriving by car today are strongly advised to park at Port Canaveral and not to drive to Ft. Lauderdale.
Sovereign of the Seas will depart later than usual tonight -- 10 p.m. -- to allow extra time for folks to get to the ship.
In other news reported yesterday, Ophelia's disturbances at Port Canaveral included the repositioning of Disney Wonder and Carnival's Fantasy; both went to Port Everglades. Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas, on its way back to Baltimore, skipped a port of call at Port Canaveral and spent the day at sea, and Norwegian Dawn swapped Great Stirrup Cay for Nassau.
As we approach the weekend, the possibility of other reroutings is strong; stay tuned for any additional changes.
