Update: Hurricane Paloma Triggers Itinerary Change
(11 a.m. EST) -- Hurricane Paloma is currently a very dangerous Category Four hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. A hurricane warning is in effect for Grand Cayman and much of Cuba, and several cruise lines have altered itineraries in anticipation of the storm.

Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas, which departed October 30 from Baltimore, will not make its scheduled port of call in Grand Cayman on Saturday. Instead, the ship will visit Cozumel on that day.

Luxury line Crystal Cruises has altered the itinerary for Crystal Symphony. That ship will call at Grand Turk in the Turks & Caicos on Saturday, November 8, instead of visiting Grand Cayman as previously scheduled.

Disney Cruise Line has also announced changes for Disney Magic. The ship, which is leaving Port Canaveral on Saturday, will visit Costa Maya on Monday (instead of spending a day at sea), Cozumel on Tuesday (instead of St. Maarten) and Grand Cayman on Wednesday (instead of St. Thomas).

Stay tuned.
