It happens. Just like flight crews need to be repositioned, cruise ships need to make some adjustments as well.Royal Caribbean International has been forced to cancel two cruises aboard its Jewel of the Seas ship next year due to repositioning plans. All passengers who already booked are eligible to receive a similar itinerary or a full refund.The affected cruises were to start on July 29 and August 10 of next year, respectively.”Our original plan for Jewel of the Seas was to offer sailings departing from Amsterdam, Netherlands through August 10, 2024. However, due to a change in our itinerary planning, Jewel of the Seas will now sail from Haifa, Israel beginning August 16, 2024,” according to an email sent to passengers. “To accommodate the ship’s repositioning to Haifa, your upcoming Jewel of the Seas cruise has been canceled.”Both affected cruises were for 12 nights each and ports of call included Iceland, the Arctic Circle and Ireland.“We know how much time and effort go into planning your vacation, and we’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience,” the email continues.Once the ship is repositioned, it will be sailing a Mediterranean itinerary.
