Tropical storm Karen forces shipping companies to re-route

Oh, the hurricane season. Following hurricanes Dorian and Humberto, tropical storm Karen is forcing the major shipping companies Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean to re-route. Only in the last week ships had to be diverted again.

This time it is a storm on the way to the US Virgin Islands. Also Puerto Rico is threatened by the storm. On Tuesday, the storm will hit land for the first time, it is still unclear in which strength he will arrive there.

In any case, the shipping companies have already responded, both Carnival Fascination and the Symphony of the Seas now have to adjust their routes. The Carnival Fascination has laid out unplanned one day earlier in St. Maarten. The stay in St. Kitts is postponed by one day, a stop in Dominica has been added.

The Symphony of the Seas has also been rerouted. The stoppages in St. Maarten and Puerto Rico for Tuesday and Wednesday were replaced by Cozumel and CocoCay.
