Empress of the Seas in Key West

Royal Caribbean International announced on Friday that calls in Key West aboard the Empress of the Seas will be swapped with a day at sea through at least October 20, citing damage from Hurricane Irma.

“In order to provide much needed supplies to the people of Key West, we are working closely with local authorities to schedule a humanitarian stop on our way to Havana, Cuba,” the company said.

For guests that choose not to sail, Royal Caribbean is offering a 100 percent future cruise credit.

The company said that Key West officials hoped to have the area ready for tourism by October 20.
