Cleaning up after Matthew

Once it left North Carolina, Hurricane Matthew dissipated and never made that predicted turn toward the Bahamas or back to Florida leaving the cruise industry in the Southeast US to get back to normal. Still many ships are sailing modified itineraries this week to compensate for turning around a day late while they waited for ports to reopen.

Some of the most popular ports of call in the Caribbean are the cruise lines' private islands and several are in the Bahamas, and we are starting to get reports in about their conditions.

Details appeared in the October 10 edition of Cruise News Daily.
