Cruise ports in the Western Caribbean, such as Ochos Rios in Jamaica, have not been affected by the hurricanes The organisation was unable to confirm whether passengers whose cruise journeys have been affected by the hurricanes are entitled to refunds, or able to rebook their cruises from of charge. The policy regarding recent crusie cancellations will differ according to the cruise line, CLIA told Telegraph Travel. Several cruise ships with Carnival, the Caribbean’s largest cruise operator, have also been diverted to unaffected ports, following damage from Hurricane Irma, and the only ports the cruise line is currently unable to visit are St Thomas, St Maarten, Grand Turk and Key West. We will adjust itineraries as needed pending storm damage in destinations but are quite adept at rearranging itineraries and providing our guests with a great variety of attractive destinations,” the cruise line said in a statement. Holland America Line has not cancelled any sailings but the cruise line is “currently assessing its itineraries while closely monitoring the effects from Hurricane Maria this week”, which could potentially affect its future Eastern Caribbean cruises, the company said in a statement. Many cruise ships are being redirected to other ports, such to St Croix US Virgin Islands , which is said to have been relatively unscathed by Hurricane Irma but the damage levels from Maria are yet to be fully determined. Here is a guide to the latest port closures. The next cruise ship currently scheduled to call at the port is in late October. St Martin The Dutch side of the island St Maarten has suffered severe damage and the port of Philipsburg is not expected to open for weeks. Norwegian Cruise Line has cancelled all of its cruises there.

Can’t wait to see the pool full of water again. The light of the sun as it makes it’s way down As a kid with no concept of time I have only memories of those beautiful long shadows and wonderful golden glow but no idea it was not even 3pm! Whether we include the club emblem too or not depends on finding compatible paint that does not jeopardise the integrity of the light blue paint. Hope that this time the contractor does a good job and look forward to see the pool filled again.
I don’t know if it’s true but i heard that in the bottom it shall have the club’s emblem, that would really be cool. I have been watching this webcam since work started on the pool and it has given me great pleasure. I now have the maintenance to look forward to and your commentary is greatly appreciated. These works have been scheduled for over 6 months now and will include the scraping of the pool paint and its replacement with a higher quality material.
This work falls under the 2 years guarantee provided by the contractor and therefore will not cost the club one penny. This work is schedule to be completed by January latest.
