Hurricane Dorian, classified as a Category 4 storm on Saturday, is expected to be near or over the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday and near the Florida east coast late Monday.
The storm, which has winds of up to 150 mph, has prompted multiple airlines to waive change fees for passengers who need to make alterations to their travel plans for Florida and the Caribbean.

Cruise ship itinerary changes
Earlier this week, Disney Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean began altering the routes of Port Canaveral, Florida-based ships to move them out of Dorian's path.
Royal Caribbean: The cruise line has moved three ships – Allure, Harmony and Symphony – from eastern to western Caribbean routes. Multiple changes were also made to the itineraries for Navigator and Mariner.
Royal Caribbean has also closed its private Island, CocoCay, with plans to reopen on Wednesday. Ships scheduled to visit CocoCay before then will instead visit Nassau.
Disney Cruise Line: Disney had already changed Fantasy to a western route. Another ship, Dream, departed as scheduled on Friday; however, it will now be a five-night sailing with visits to Cozumel, Mexico, and Disney's private Island, Castaway Cay.
Carnival: As of Saturday, the cruise line said it was "actively monitoring" the storm's potential impact on departures. Though most plans have not changed for cruises scheduled to begin this weekend or early next week, Monday's Carnival Liberty was canceled. Monday's Carnival Elation will now operate as a two-day sailing, departing Sept. 5 and returning Sept. 7 with a visit to Nassau, according to their website.
Monday's Carnival Victory cruise will now operate as a two-day cruise, departing Wednesday, and Sunday's Horizon will be docking Saturday evening for guests to disembark.
Carnival is encouraging customers booked on cruises scheduled for early September to sign up for text alerts by texting CCL8 to CRUISE (278473).
