On Wednesday, Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. said it estimates the direct financial impact of the fire aboard Royal Caribbean International's Grandeur of the Seas (net of insurance) will be a reduction of $0.10 per share.
"The extent of the financial impact was relatively high because the affected sailings were during the premium summer season," said Jason Liberty, senior vice president and chief financial officer, in a statement.
Grandeur is expected to return to service for its July 12 sailing date, Liberty noted. This ship sustained damage from a fire on May 27 while off the coast of Lake Worth, Fla. enroute to CocoCay in the Bahamas.
The cruise ship will be undergo repairs in the Bahamas at Grand Bahama Shipyard Ltd. according to a Twitter feed Wednesday from @Royal Caribbean PR.
To date, a total of six sailings of the damaged Royal Caribbean International cruise ship have been canceled: 5/31, 6/7, 6/14. 6/21. 6/28 and 7/5.
