Default Itinerary Changes due to Hurricane Norbert......

Carnival Pride - departed Long Beach Sunday, October 5 - The Mazatlan call on Thursday (October 9) will be canceled and replaced with Cabo San Lucas on Thursday (October 9 - noon-6pm) as the ship hurries to pass in front of Norbert's path. A call will then be added at Ensenada on Saturday (October 11 - 8am-5pm). Carnival Pride will return to Long Beach as scheduled on Sunday (October 12).

Holland America's Ryndam - departed San Diego Sunday (October 5) - The ship is on a charter and not operating its regular itinerary. A call at La Paz on Friday (October 10) has been canceled, and the ship will remain at sea, creating three sea days in a row.

Not yet....Norbert should be out of the way by then, but Odile should be far enough out yet not to affect your cruise at departure.

Default More Itinerary Changes

Updated 12n: Carnival Elation - departs San Diego Thursday (October 9) - The Cabo San Lucas call on Saturday will be canceled. The revised itinerary calls at Catalina on Saturday (October 11 - 8am-5pm) and Ensenada on Sunday (October 12 - 8am-5pm). Carnival Elation will return to San Diego on Monday (October 13) as scheduled.

Carnival Pride - departed Long Beach Sunday, October 5 - The Mazatlan call on Thursday (October 9) will be canceled and replaced with Cabo San Lucas on Thursday (October 9 - noon-6pm) as the ship hurries to pass in front of Norbert's path. A call will then be added at Ensenada on Saturday (October 11 - 8am-5pm). Carnival Pride will return to Long Beach as scheduled on Sunday (October 12).

Updated 2:45pm: NCL's Norwegian Sun - departed San Francisco Thursday (October 2) - The ship will cancel its call at Cabo San Lucas on Friday (October 10) and remain at sea. Norwegian Sun will return to San Francisco as scheduled on Monday (October 13).

Holland America's Ryndam - departed San Diego Sunday (October 5) - The ship is on a charter and not operating its regular itinerary. A call at La Paz on Friday (October 10) has been canceled, and the ship will remain at sea, creating three sea days in a row.

Updated 2pm: Sapphire Princess - departed Los Angeles Saturday (October 4) - The only change was a cancellation of a call at Cabo San Lucas Thursday (October 9) as the ship wants to cross the storm's projected path ahead of it instead of having to wait for the storm to pass. The ship is therefore spending the day at sea. Sapphire is expected to return to Los Angeles on Saturday as scheduled.

What do you anticipate happening with the Oct. 13 departure of Carnival Elation?

The 10/13 departure should be fine.

Hi Lisa, thanks for your information you provide. I see that Norbert should be done/gone by this weekend, but I was a little more curious about Odile and it's potential.

Understanding that it's impossible to "predict", I'm more asking from your experience, do these storms continue for days/weeks, or is there generally a time span in which they die off? We are scheduled to go to Cabo San Lucas on Wed. the 15th. (Which my wife REALLY wants to do)....and I see the storm should be south of there, but I don't know how much that will affect the tendering process. Does that distance from Cabo usually mean it won't be affected, or are there other circumstances?

I guess it's my inexperience with Tropical Storms, being from CO and all.

Norbert is going to be long gone, Odile is predicted as of now to head out west to sea....the only possible effect on Cabo might be higher than usual waves. Cabo has been skipped when sea conditions are not good even if it is sunny out, so while there is a very small possibility the stop may be cancelled, the odds are you will make it.
