I'm seeing some of the bridge cams are dated August 23 here and the same ones are dated later on the Princess site.  Example Majestic and Sea both show August 23 but on Princess it's as of today.

From CNBC:
-Carnival downgraded as Hurricane Irma and other events hurt demand

Credit Suisse lowered its rating for Carnival shares to neutral from outperform, saying the cruise company is facing a more difficult demand environment.
The firm's analyst cited the geopolitical tensions in the Korean peninsula, the August terror attack in Barcelona and Hurricane Irma, "which has caused significant damage across the Eastern Caribbean."

Interesting, but not unexpected. This is also more of a market correction after the spectacular performance of the last few years.
IMHO.

I booked that particular cruise because of the stops in Antigua and Dominican Republic since I have not been to those islands yet, but if they changed the stops I wouldn't mind at all (unless the stops where changed to some of the western Mexico ports like Costa Maya and Cozumel. I was just to those ports and really didn't care for them).

I was wondering the same thing. I have cruise booked (and paid for) for January 20th going to St. Thomas; Antigua; St. Maarten and Dominican Republic. I haven't heard from Princess yet but would not be surprised if the cruise was cancelled.
Or just substituted islands.
Does it really make a difference to you?
If the cruise is outside of the no-penalty cancellation window, alterations to the itinerary change the product/price balance. To many, this  won't matter, but to others, it will change everything. Cruises that are within the no-penalty time frame, fall under the cruise lines ability to substitute ports if necessary. If a fire-sale appears for eastern Caribbean cruises, we'll have our answer. There are a significant number of cruise lines selling these destinations, so even a 'blip' of cruise cancellations will be profound, as the demographics change to oversupply.

To be honest about it, we're at the point where we don't care what islands we visit on a Caribbean cruise.
I realize that people do cruise for specific places to see but as lone as they substitute a different one for the damaged place it's fine by us.
I actually choose a cruise based upon the time of year and not where they go.
If enough people shy away from cruising for this season it might even mean cheaper prices for a while. (or more incentive's)

With St.Maarten/St.Martin and St.Thomas/St.John suffering such extensive damage, what changes to itineraries and voyage cancellations are the cruise lines instituting? Certainly, if it hasn't shown up yet, there are likely to be huge numbers of eastern Caribbean  cruise cancellations for voyages outside the 75 day no penalty window. Even once infrastructure repairs have been established, these islands aren't going to appeal to many cruisers for a very long time.

Been on Sun a couple of times, what is she now? 22 years old. Yes having some issues.  Nice ships the Sun Class.  BTW Dawn Princess is now P&O Australia's 'Pacific Explorer.'  Family ship. Grin

Friend of mine was on Sea Princess Princess Worldie this year.  99% Aussies on board, they would have bombarded the pirates with booze bottles, plenty of empties on board. Shocked

In 2012 we were on P&O UK 'Arcadia' Sydney to Southampton, crossing the Indian Ocean towards Africa we had pirate drill.   Sit in the corridor, hands on head and be quiet. Grin
