Ophelia: Grandeur Will Depart Baltimore Saturday
(10:30 a.m.) -- As a result of the dithering pace of Hurricane Ophelia off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia, Royal Caribbean has announced that its Baltimore-based Grandeur of the Seas will not return to Baltimore on Friday as scheduled.

The ship is now expected to arrive on Saturday. Embarkation is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. and the ship is planning to depart at 3:30 p.m.

Royal Caribbean will offer $100 per person for change fees for those folks who now need to reschedule air.

As a result of Grandeur's delayed departure, the ship will skip two ports -- CocoCay and Freeport. Ports still on schedule include Key West, Cozumel and Orlando's Port Canaveral. As a result of the canceled stops and loss of a day of the itinerary, Royal Caribbean is offering passengers on the cruise a $250 onboard credit (that's per stateroom, by the way).

Ophelia, now a Tropical Storm, has been stationary all day off North Carolina's Outer Banks. The storm is expected to head up to Virginia once its regains movement. Winds are in the 60-mile-per-hour range.
