The stormy conditions at sea are causing a big detour for more than a thousand cruise ship passengers in and out of West Palm Beach.

The Grand Celebration cruise ship is docking at Port Everglades Monday because it can't get into the Port of Palm Beach.

The ship has 1435 passengers on board.

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line told CBS12 it has arranged for 22 buses to take passengers to West Palm Beach to collect their cars. Those same buses will take sailing passengers down to Port Everglades to board the Grand Celebration cruise ship. The last buses will leave for Port Everglades at 3 p.m. The Grand Celebration is set to return to Palm Beach on Wednesday.
