The move marks not only a change in seasonal homeport but also in itinerary, as the ship had been scheduled to cruise seven-night trips.
Its four-night sailing will call at Cozumel. Five-night trips will visit Costa Maya and Cozumel. The ship will sail a handful of special seven-nighters as it begins its spring repositioning -- one in the Western Caribbean on April 22, another to San Juan on April 29. Ultimately Grandeur will head north to Baltimore for its already-announced summer season.
Options for folks booked on Grandeur's scuppered New Orleans cruises include:
One of the four- or five-night Grandeur sailings from Tampa, or Splendour of the Seas out of Galveston, or Enchantment of the Seas from Ft. Lauderdale. Those who rebook on Grandeur will receive a partial refund and a $150 per-stateroom credit. Those who rebook on Splendour or Enchantment will get the partial refund and $100 credit.
Any seven-night cruise on a Vision-class ship (Vision of the Seas, Enchantment of the Seas, Rhapsody of the Seas, Splendour of the Seas or Legend of the Seas) at the rate originally paid plus a $100 per-stateroom credit.
Any other Royal Caribbean itinerary at prevailing rates and a $100 per stateroom credit.
Cancellation -- with full refund and a $100 per stateroom future cruise credit.
Rebooking is only available until November 1.
