Default Cruise Changes due to Hurricanes!

August 11, 2004

Hurricane Tracker -- Tropical Storms Pack Double Punch
(10:30 a.m.) -- Carnival Cruise Lines is the first to weigh in with changes to cruise itineraries this week as a result of the development of two tropical storms -- Bonnie and Charley. Both, particularly Charley, are impacting Western Caribbean itineraries. Carnival Triumph, for instance, will bypass its planned call this week at Ocho Rios (and go to Nassau instead). Paradise is replacing Grand Cayman with Nassau. And Carnival Conquest will go to Progreso instead of Ocho Rios.

At this point, Tropical Storm Bonnie, swirling around the Gulf of Mexico, is the lesser worry. Its winds are in the 50-miles-per-hour range and it's moving slowly toward the mouth of the Mississippi. It is expected to turn northeast toward Panama City later on today and could impact cruises in that region on Thursday and Friday.

Aiming for the Florida Keys, Tropical Storm Charley is on a path to becoming at least a Category One hurricane according to The Weather Channel. At this point, Jamaica is under tropical storm warning and the Cayman Islands are under a hurricane warning. A hurricane watch has been issued for the Florida Keys.

Wow! We are leaving end of next week to Cayman. Wonder if it will be altered as Charley is set to hit that Island. I sure hope not.

Depends on the amount of damage that the storm does. It will be well clear of there by then. What is of a big concern to me is that this storm is expected to impact just below Tampa Friday evening so if any ships are supposed to be in port Saturday they may well be delayed until Sunday or diverted to Miami.

24 cruises and counting!
