Cruise lines creep to stay off the path of Hurricane Dorian and navigate port closures, resulting in extended cruises for some travelers and deferred trips, itinerary and shortened trips for others.

Port of Miami, a major Florida cruise port, said Sunday the port is closed for the time being. Port Canaveral, a popular cruise stop 45 miles east of Orlando, closed late Saturday.

Further changes are possible given the unpredictable path of the storm, so travelers should check the cruise line's website regularly
