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.
