Based on the information I received from RC at 6:30 this evening - here are the latest changes they have made:

Given Hurricane Wilma's location and projected path, Royal Caribbean is currently providing itinerary updates regarding six ships and Celebrity Cruises is not currently altering the itineraries of any ships.

ROYAL CARIBBEAN INTERNATIONAL

Ships sailing from Port Everglades

UPDATED -- Enchantment of the Seas -- The Tuesday, October 25, sailing of Enchantment of the Seas – originally scheduled to depart on Monday, October 24 – is now cancelled. The ship will now be used to bring humanitarian relief supplies to the victims of Hurricane Wilma in Mexico. Enchantment of the seas will resume its normal sailings on Saturday, October 28, departing from Port Everglades.
Guests booked on the cancelled cruise are being provided with three options:
OPTION 1: Guests may receive a full refund and a certificate for a 25 percent discount on a future Royal Caribbean International cruise.
OPTION 2: Based on availability, guests may immediately rebook on Majesty of the Seas’ Tuesday, October 25, sailing from the Port of Miami. This is a three-night itinerary with port calls in Coco Cay, Bahamas, Wednesday; Key West, Florida, Thursday; and returning to the Port of Miami Friday. Each guest would also receive a 50 percent refund of their cruise fare and a $125 onboard credit. The ship’s itinerary is subject to change due to weather and port conditions.
OPTION 3: Based on availability, guests may immediately rebook on Sovereign of the Seas’ Tuesday, October 25, sailing from Port Canaveral. This is a three-night itinerary with port calls in Nassau, Bahamas, Wednesday; Coco Cay, Bahamas, Thursday; and returning to Port Canaveral Friday. Each guest would also receive a 50 percent refund of their cruise fare and a $125 onboard credit. The ship’s itinerary is subject to change due to weather and port conditions.
