Default Storm damage to Mexican port forces change in Glory's itiner


The Port Canaveral-based Carnival Glory is changing its itinerary as a result of damage at a Mexican port caused by Hurricane Dean.

The world's two largest cruise operators -- Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. -- both use the port at Majahual, known as Puerto Costa Maya.

But Majahual suffered extensive damage when Dean swept over the Yucatan as a top-scale Category 5 hurricane Tuesday, demolishing houses, crumpling steel girders and washing away parts of concrete dock at the port.

For the Saturday departure of the Carnival Glory, the seven-day cruise from Port Canaveral will have a few port-of-call changes, substituting a stop at Progreso, Yucatan, for the Dean-ravaged Costa Maya on Wednesday.

The revised itinerary is as follows: On Sunday, the ship will stop at Key West from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., rather than being out at sea; on Monday, the ship will be at sea, and will arrive in Cozumel on Tuesday. It will arrive in Progreso on Wednesday.

The rest of the trip remains the same: On Thursday, the ship will be at sea. On Aug. 31, the ship will visit Nassau. And on Sept. 1, the ship will return to Port Canaveral.

It is not known yet when any of the Carnival ships will start making port-of-call visits to Costa Maya, Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said.

Carnival and Royal Caribbean each have two ships based at Port Canaveral.

Costa Maya has become a popular destination since it began operating in 2001 to provide tourist access to historic Mayan sites.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
