BRAVO, Royal Caribbean International, What You Just Did... WOW!

HUGE HUGE HUGE EPIC Shout-Out to, Royal Caribbean International (RCI). Yesterday, Adventures of the Seas, arrived in San Juan, Puerto Rico, LIKE A BOSS!

Next, St Thomas and St Croix?!

The following was posted on the Royal Caribbean Website:

The following sailing is being cancelled: 
Adventure of the Seas: September 30
Given the impact of Hurricane Maria, we are cancelling this cruise to utilize the ship for evacuation and humanitarian efforts. The ship will arrive on Wednesday, September 27 and will operate humanitarian calls in San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Croix to aid in the evacuation and donate critical supplies to each destination.  The ship will bring evacuees to Fort Lauderdale before returning to San Juan on October 6 to prepare for the October 7th cruise.  
We are very sorry for the impact this storm has had on your vacation. The cruise fare and fees will be 100% refunded to the original form of payment, and we are also offering a 25% future cruise credit, based on the cruise fare, if a new cruise is booked in the next 30 days. Pre-booked shore excursions will also be refunded to your original form of payment.

BRAVO Royal Caribbean International, way to show the US Government how it's done, Son. Way to step up and do the right thing. It's not about money; it's about lives. OUT-FRIGGIN-STANDING!

It's comforting to know, those repeatedly beaten down by the hurricanes, are going to be treated to a few days on an ultra-luxe Royal Caribbean cruise ship. I pray they find solace in those peaceful moments.

My heart is so full of joy, it's smiling. Thank you, thank you, thank you. There seems to be no end to the company's dedication and generosity. Thank you, Royal Caribbean International, you have my family's business.
