Calls by at least two cruise ships to the French port of Nice have been canceled following Thursday’s truck massacre.

Royal Caribbean International had scheduled its Navigator of the Seas to call on July 15, and Celebrity Cruises was to call the following day with the Celebrity Constellation. Both ships will spend the day at sea instead.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., which operates both brands, said in a statement that the decision was made after a review of available information and a consultation with its Miami-based global security team. It did not say if the decision was made because of disruptive conditions in Nice or because of ongoing security concerns.

"We will continue to closely monitor the situation in France and will contact guests or their travel agents should we make any additional changes to upcoming itineraries. Whether or not we call to Nice will always be driven by our concern for the safety and well-being of our guests and crew members,” the statement said.
