Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the seas The Cape Liberty-based company is delayed for more than a day due to a diversion into medical emergencies.

Hymn of the Seas Delayed

The Quantum Class cruise ship has a delay of more than a day due to a medical emergency on board. The Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship had to make an unscheduled call Nassau, Bahamas on the way back to his home port at Cape Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey.

Due to the unexpected diversion, the ship is now late and no longer arrives today, May 18, but on May 19 early in the morning. Passengers who stop the cruise can disembark at about 6:00 in the morning.

This affects the travel arrangements of many cruise ships, and the cruise company offers a free fare change when booking through them. Passengers who have booked their own flights will be credited up to a certain amount for any changes.

Of course, the delayed arrival has a kick-off effect for the next cruise, which should start at 16:00 on 18 May. Anthem of the seas Originally, it was planned to sail a 5-day round trip to Bermuda with arrival on May 20 for a overnight call. Instead, the ship arrives on May 21st and departs at around 8:00 pm on the same day. On the shorter cruise, all guests will be refunded for the lost days

At the time of diversion, the ship returned from its scheduled arrival at Labadee, a private resort for the Haiti cruise line, to its home port. Other calls during the trip included Puerto Rico, St. Maarten and Bermuda.

Although the medical emergency caused significant delays for thousands of cruise passengers, there was no doubt that the diversion had to be carried out. That's why cruise insurance is so important that you never know when it will happen.

Anthem of the seas is the second Quantum-class vessel with 167,800 gross tons and a guest capacity of over 4,100 with double occupancy.
