Default What's going to happen on wednesday?

If the Splendor is changing the first two days at sea to Catalina and Encenada, then what will they do on Wednesday?
Does anyone know? I'm sure the hurricane will still be effecting the schedule.... any chance they would travel up north a bit?
Just curious... I don't think it's going to effect my cruise next week, but hey, you never know....

What's going to happen on Wednesday? I have a doctor's appointment.

Seriously:

I believe that Carnival put the Ensenada stop on in order to fulfill its requirements under the Passenger Services Act. This will allow them to go wherever they want after that. I would bet that if the hurricane is bearing down on Cabo and along the Baja they will go to San Francisco or Monterey.

I wouldn't make any bets on seeing much of Mexico on this trip. What the heck, you'll still have a great time onboard.

Take care,
Mike

I'm flying to New Orleans. Seriously.


Carnival and other cruise lines blew off the PSA during the Piggy Flu thing, Act 1, pretty much daring the US to fine them. I think there was kind of a mutual agreement that although they violated the act, there was sufficient cause to do so and no fine.

I would love to be on that cruise. What fun it would be to be on and almost new ship, going somewhere.

Can that ship fit under the Golden Gate? Just curious.

"Boy did CCL rip us off, we paid for a cruise somewhere and they took us on a cruise somewhere else". Oh sorry, I'm getting ahead of myself.

I'm sure there will be some disappointed passengers, but I hope they have a good time. It would be an adventure to find out what your next port will be on a day by day basis.

It reminds me of a review I read several years ago.

A family who were from the upper East coast, wanted a little bit of the warm weather, so they booked a cruise to St. Thomas and beyond.

Hurricane developed, and the ship was re-routed back uo the east coast within several miles of their house.

She took her clothes home to wash for the excursion.

If you know every stop, and everything is planned for everyday, where is the adventure. I'll get on that ship !!

I love it.... I live in the bay area, but it would sure a grand site to see San Francisco from the ship.

And by the way, I've been to Mexicao twice... I'm am really, really okay with going somewhere else. I think it's exciting, although I know there are some who specifically chose this cruise for the ports, but not me...
I chose this cruise because I could drive to the port and it's a bigger and newer ship than the last one.

But all that being said, I'm not sure the hurricane will have any kind of affect on my particular cruise. Either I don't care as long as I am on the ship in a safe location..... say... how about the casino bar. That sounds safe enough.

I love your attitude, but the glasses freak me out.

Have a great cruise!!!!

Ferrangi, if Jimena hits Cabo like it appears its going to then you may have to sit in the bay that day and look at the beach with binoculars. There may be too much damage to tender as there will be virtually no time for repairs if you sail next week. Hopefully Maz and PV will still be on the docket but my guess is you will get residual effects.

I'm okay with that..... my main goal here is to NOT be in high winds and big waves... but that's the chance you take when you book during hurricane season....

Just curious... I don't think it's going to effect my cruise next week, but hey, you never know....
Hurricane Jimena currently show as a category 3 hurricane (120 mph winds speed). Jimena is project with west side of Baja Mexico (looks like Los Cabos got lucky). Tomorrow, Jimena will be downgraded to category 2 (110 mph wind speed). Probably still powerful for ships to make port in baja mexico area. The eye will not make landfall until wed night / Thursday morning. Sounds like day at sea to me.


Also anyone going Caribbeans next week, Tropical Storm Erika seems to quite developing nicely.......


This has been your Carnival Weather Special Report....now we return you to normal forums 8)

I dont really worry about weather until about a week before. Then I will look at weather sites long range forecasts and search for hurricane activity. I think its way too soon too worry about it but I want all the crappy weather to come now and clear out before the 20th. I have pretty good weather karma so if you sail with me all will be well!!

Excuse me.... (tammy clears her throat)
You have friends about to board it would not be very nice to hope for crappy weather until after we have all sailed.
By the way all is good for my cruise it looks like!

My apologies to my fellow soon to cruise Splendor friends. I pray for clear skies and calm seas for all who sail. Ferrangi, how soon can you give a report when you get back? I want to hear and see all about it.
