Carnival to Cancel Mexico Ports of Call - This Week
AP is just now breaking a report that Carnival Corp. will suspend stops at Mexican ports for all three ships it has scheduled to visit the country in the next few days. This statement precedes a more detailed statement scheduled for today at 5:00 pm EDT to address later stops.
Royal Caribbean International and Norwegian Cruise Lines still hope to reassure their passengers that their onboard facilities can provide sufficient health care and infection prevention measures to keep onboard guests safe.
Norwegian Pearl, currently on a repositioning cruise with stops in Mexico, is monitoring the situation by conducting fleet-wide guest health questionnaires.
Royal Caribbean is telling passengers not to go overboard with panic and concern, noting that the outbreaks are inland rather than in the Mexican coastal cities popular with cruise tourists.
RCL is saying wrong- it has hit port cities - Cancun - there is a Canadian who is apparently suffering from Mexico flu who was in Cancun and a second probable from the same port. (They were on land vacations.)
