CHANTAL SENDS 2 SHIPS TO ST. THOMAS, ST. JOHN

Aug. 20, 2001 – With Tropical Storm Chantal moving through the Western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, two cruise ships, Celebrity Cruises' Century and Norwegian Cruise Line's Norway, will be making unscheduled calls at St. Thomas and St. John this week.
A release from The West Indian Co. said that due to Chantal's "possible adverse affect on shipping in the Gulf of Mexico and at Western Caribbean ports, there have been changes in ship arrivals."
The Century will pull in at the WICO docks Tuesday at 7 a.m. and leave at 6 p.m. for Sint Maarten. The Norway will call at 7 a.m. Thursday on St. John, then move on to St. Thomas, where it will arrive at 9 a.m. and stay until 6 p.m.
Although the Norway for years called weekly at St. Thomas and St. John, it has been on a Western Caribbean itinerary for part of this summer. The Century also was cruising the Western Caribbean this week.
All other schedules locally remain the same, according to WICO. For a full look at other cruise ship arrivals click here.
