Royal said while CocoCay was spared destruction by Dorian, the storm left debris, pulled up trees and washed away sand and bricks. “We started working on repairs as quickly as possible, but we kindly ask you ’mind our dust’ as we continue out recovery efforts,” said the line in a statement to passengers.


The line has pledged $1 million to rebuilding efforts, and will deliver more than 20,000 meals a day, as well as water, medical supplies, generators and “other necessities”. Empress of the Seas departed PortMiami with Royal’s first aid consignment last week, with Navigator of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas all set to make deliveries to Freeport.


Royal will also match guest and employee donations to the Pan American Development Foundation dollar for dollar, up to $500,000.


The Caribbean Tourism Organisation has relaunched its relief fund, while Caribbean Airlines on Sunday (8 September) embarked on its own relief efforts in partnership with the Foundation for the Enhancement of Enrichment of Life.


The Foreign Office is advising against all travel to Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands. The UK government has pledged an initial £1.5 million towards relief efforts.

 

Navy ship RFA Mounts Bay will deliver critical aid supplies while supporting the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency’s efforts to coordinate the international response to Dorian.
