Hurricane Matthew strikes again...

Due to the swells, and tide level of the Chesapeake Bay, the coast guard had to close the bay, forcing the Grandeur to leave port early and without cruisers.... Broke my heart talking to them and there were some choice words from upset cruisers....

Was it a departure port or a Port of call?

That was not RCI fault..... but people need somebody to be mad at.  Better safe then sorry and better with travel insurance.

People were done with RCI and would never cruise with them again... but its not their fault. Any cruise line could have been in that position. I was just crushed telling everyone. Crying 4 or 5 drinks later.... I'm feeling better.

Ouch .. but not RCL fault. Any other ship would have had to pull out early as well

Thats what I would say too because its the coast guard, and they are above the cruise line.... But peole don't want to hear that. Oh well. Just safe travels for all... Wind is bad today, so who knows whats in store.

I know it is hard to accept disappointment but it is better to be disappointed than to die.
