Unnamed tropical storm triggers cruise alterations in Western Caribbean

Published on : Friday, October 27, 2017

Cruise ShipAn unnamed tropical depression has triggered a few port call alterations for cruise vessels that are presently sailing in the Western Caribbean.


Carnival ships scheduled to call on Grand Canyon on 26th October have skipped these calls thereby making a sea day instead. Moreover a stopover in Belize has also been called off on account of the storm.


The storm is currently labeled a ‘disturbance’ is expected to move northward Friday and Saturday, ushering in heavy rainfall on Cayman Islands, parts of Cuba and Jamaica as per the National Hurricane Center.

It has a nearly 30% chance of developing into a named storm in the next 48 hours and a 40% chance of doing so in the next five days.


And, if it does so, it would be known as Tropical Storm Phillippe. If it becomes a named storm Phillippe would be the 16th tropical storm of the 2017 season. In fact it would mark a record year especially following closely in the wake of the Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.


Hurricane season runs from 1st June to 30th November and the end of this season is generally quieter than August and September.
