Royal Caribbean is sending cruise ships to the Caribbean to help with Hurricane Irma relief efforts and to transport those impacted by the devastating storm to safety, the cruise line announced Sunday.
Ships from Royal Caribbean’s fleet are being mobilized and filled with supplies to “help people in need,” according to a press release.
On Sunday, the Adventure of the Seas will be making a humanitarian stop in St. Martin, while the Majesty of the Seas will make stops in both St. Thomas and St. Martin. That ship will then assist in transporting evacuees from the island.
Two additional ships — the Empress of the Seas and the Enchantment of the Seas — are ready to assist Florida cities such as Key West and Tampa once the hurricane passes through and its impact is known, the press release said.
