The Norwegian Cruise Line ship was rerouted from Bermuda to the Maritimes because of hurricane Florence

This map shows the projected path for Hurricane Florence as issued by the National Hurricane Center on September 10, 2018.

More than 4,000 people onboard the Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Escape are now making their way to the Bahamas instead of their original destination of Bermuda in order to avoid the devastating storm.

Major cruise lines are altering their routes to avoid Category 4 hurricane Florence, which is likely to strike the U.S. east coast on Thursday.

Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas cruise that sailed from Baltimore Sept. 8 will spend Tuesday in Nassau, and Wednesday and Thursday in Port Canaveral, before returning to Baltimore Sept. 16. The vessels departed Baltimore on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Another Carnival ship, the New York-based, 3,936-passenger Carnival Horizon, cancelled a Sunday call at San Juan, Puerto Rico and shifted the date of a call in the Dominican Republic as it altered its route to stay out of the storm's way. The ship will return to NY as planned on September 13, reports Travel Agent Central.

"Due to Hurricane Florence in the Eastern Atlantic, we have modified Norwegian Dawn's itinerary".

It's a massive lesson for everyone. "That is a massive lesson for everyone, he was the first to tell me he made a mistake". Only we need to try, how he understands that it was a mistake.

The Norwegian Dawn made an unexpected stop in Sydney on Monday. Passengers of the Oceania cruise line ship "Insignia" say they are disappointed they were forced to change course, but understand why they had to dock.

In all, the changes are affecting the cruises of more than 15,000 vacationers.

The changes come as the coast of the Carolinas appears increasingly threatened by Florence.

As of noon on Monday, Florence was more than 1,200 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, moving westward.

It is feared the current Category 4 storm could batter North and SC and Virginia with winds of up to 150 miles per hour by the time it reaches land.
