Never Mind

After making preparations to close South Florida ports and cruise lines rerouting a half dozen cruises and scheduling a few others leave a bit early to get out ahead of the storm, Tropical Storm Erika was torn apart as it went across the mountains in Hispaniola and dissipated before it ever got to Florida. Even the remnants didn’t produce the rain storms predicted.

Since Erika was thoughtful enough to fall apart before it blew into Florida, it gave the cruise lines to change most of their plans a second time, and most ships could revert to their original itineraries.

The complete story appeared in the August 31 edition of Cruise News Daily.
