Royal Caribbean uses own cruise ship to deliver supplies to Puerto Rico

Royal Caribbean uses own cruise ship to deliver supplies to Puerto Rico”

Only ten flights made it in and out of the San Juan airport on Tuesday, and just 18 are scheduled for Wednesday.

Instead of vacationers, Royal Caribbean is transporting supplies to Puerto Rico.

The cruise line is working with the local governments in St. Croix, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico to coordinate the evacuation effort.

The Royal Caribbean cruise ship is heading to St. Thomas and St Croix too and will be evacuating nearly 3,000 people including families of Royal Caribbean employees. The ship will drop off relief supplies at each of the three stops before taking the evacuees to Fort Lauderdale on October 3, before resuming normal operations next month. The ship will return to San Juan on October 6 to operate its next scheduled itinerary on October 7. Passengers will also get a 25 percent future cruise credit if they book a new trip within the next 30 days. The ship will bring evacuees to Fort Lauderdale before returning to San Juan on October 6 to prepare for the October 7 cruise. The other, Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Fascination, has canceled three sailings due to damage to Carnival's terminal at the port.

The company started offering aid after Hurricane Irma devastated a wide swath of the Caribbean earlier this month. Essential supplies will also be dropped off to the islands to be distributed to residents.
