Royal Caribbean International will not sail its Liberty of the Seas itinerary that was scheduled to leave from Galveston last week because of delays due to Hurricane Harvey.

“We are sorry for the impact that this storm has had on your vacation and appreciate your patience as we worked through this. Please know that this decision was made with your safety in mind,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement.

Royal Caribbean will refund 100% of the cruise fare in the original payment form for every guest in the next four or five days, it said. It is also offering a 25% future cruise credit based on booked fare for another sailing booked in the next 30 days.

The ship, which docked in Miami during the storm, is expected to return to Galveston on Friday.
