Miami, FL – Wednesday, April 29, 2009 – 8.30pm


Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled port of call visits to Mexico for 11 of its ships that are currently operating voyages and had scheduled stops in Mexico.


Additionally, for the 15 ships departing between Thursday, April 30 and Monday, May 4 with itineraries including calls in Mexican ports, those schedules have been modified. In many instances, the modification simply involved substituting an alternate port.  Full details on the modified itineraries click here.


Guests who do not wish to sail on a modified itinerary may opt to receive a refund in the form of a future cruise credit equal to the full amount paid for the voyage.  The credit may be applied to an alternate sailing departing through the end of 2010.  Compensation for missed ports/altered itineraries (where applicable) for guests who sail varies by itinerary.


With four and five-day cruises from Galveston and New Orleans that are being converted to seven-day voyages, those guests may opt to receive their refund in the form of a future cruise credit or money back.


For cruises departing after May 4, an update will be provided in the near future.  Guests are encouraged to check periodically for further updates.
