Does anyone want to guess on what they will do for an 11/11/17 sailing scheduled to go to HMC, St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk? I am thinking St. Thomas will not be ready in 2 months. Do you agree? Do you think they'll stop at a different port or add an extra sea day? Thanks for your opinions!!!

It's amazing how quickly ports can be restored ....
Too soon to know just now.

While not discounting Irma's devastation, I will say, in my cruising experience, tender ports are much more likely to be cancelled. Non-tender ports will open fairly quickly once it has been decided it is safe because the ship may allow staff to debark to participate in island clean-up while passengers are enjoying their port day.

I agre with you about St Thomas. If I had to guess I'd say either sea day or Amber Cove
