Tampa, FL -

Foggy weather off the coast of Florida is causing problems for some cruise ship passengers.

At least one cruise has now been canceled as a result of the conditions. Royal Caribbean announced that the next sailing of the "Brilliance of the Seas" has been canceled, and the company is issuing full refunds to passengers.

"Brilliance" was due to arrive in the port of Tampa the morning of February 23, but had to be escorted back into the port by Coast Guard ships this afternoon.

The company says the cruise ship had been unable to get back because it wasn't safe to navigate through the fog.
