President Obama's visit to PortMiami Friday is expected to bring traffic to a standstill at the port and surrounding streets as entrances will be temporarily closed during certain periods to facilitate this visit.
Already at least one cruise ship's sailing will be delayed as a result of the presidential visit.
In a statement Tuesday, Royal Caribbean International advised passengers sailing on its Majesty of the Seas ship set to depart March 29 to arrive at the Miami seaport between 10:30 a.m. and noon, or from 3 to 5:30 p.m. for check-in.
"Majesty of the Seas’ departure time will be delayed to accommodate this event, but it will not impact the ship’s scheduled itinerary," Royal Caribbean said." We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our guests, and appreciate their cooperation and understanding"
