But there are SO MANY many many other ports in eastern there is no reason that they HAVE to choose western or just cancel. The ports we were going to are not the only ones in fact there are some eastern ports that I would KILL to visit.Unfortunately it's not as easy as just switching. there are contracts in place between the cruise lines and port cities. Some ports can only handle so many ships at one time. With the large number of "megaships" that may also limit which ships can go where. Moving in to the busy Caribbean season, there are a lot more ships headed back to Florida and a lot of coordination needs to be done.
I won't lie, I'd be excited to go to some new E Caribbean ports. Both my Dec and March cruise was E Caribbean (as of this moment) with St Thomas and St Maarten. But I doubt either ship, Harmony or Seaside, will fit at the smaller island ports.
