Royal Caribbean on Thursday said it was evaluating the possible impact of the storms on a Bermuda sailing out of Bayonne, N. The voyage is on the line's 4,180-passenger Anthem of the Seas — the world's fifth largest cruise ship. ET Friday, Irma was about 495 miles southeast of Miami and moving to the west-northwest at 16 miles per hour.
It had maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.
As previously announced, the first of these ships is expected to be in service for AIDA Cruises and Costa Cruises in 2019.
Regent's Seven Seas Explorer, the subject of a Channel 5 documentary airing tonight, was billed as “the most luxurious cruise ship ever built” when it was unveiled last year.
“From the window curtains in the tender boats to the top suite’s bespoke £112,000 bed, there is nothing cookie-cutter about Explorer,” said Telegraph Travel’s cruise editor Teresa Machan, who boarded the ship for a first look inside.
