Cruise ships have been rerouted from Hamilton Island as Tropical Cyclone Debbie will make landfall early this week in Queensland.
The cyclone is currently listed as a Category 1 storm and the Azamara Journey, which is scheduled to make calls on Hamilton Island on Tuesday March 28 and Townsville on March 29, has been rerouted.
“We are currently monitoring the path and progress of Tropical Cyclone Debbie off the coast of Australia,” the global corporate communications director for Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd told Cruise Critic. “Based on the storm’s current location and projected path, we have rerouted Azamara Journey to ensure our guests have an enjoyable and comfortable cruise.”
Princess Cruises’ Sun Princess is scheduled to call at Cairns on Wednesday and P&O Australia’s Pacific Dawn is set to call at Airlie Beach on Thursday March 30. A spokesperson for P&O said the cruise line is currently monitoring the situation and will give passengers an update in a few hours.
