IRIS SENDING 2 SHIPS TO ST. THOMAS WEDNESDAY

Oct. 9, 2001 – St. Thomas will be getting two extra cruise ship visits on Wednesday as a result of Hurricane Iris's movement across the Western Caribbean.
When the hurricane's approach threatened ports on the ships' normal itinerary, cruise line executives decided to reroute the two vessels and so informed The West Indian Co., according to a WICO release.
The Enchantment of the Seas is now scheduled to arrive at St. Thomas at 7 a.m. Wednesday from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and to depart at 6 p.m. for San Juan.
The Grand Princess also is to arrive at 7 a.m. and is scheduled to depart at 5 p.m.
WICO also said that the Century, in port on Tuesday, would depart at 7 p.m.
