Miami, FL – Monday, May 4, 2009 – 3pm

Carnival Cruise Lines has cancelled all port of call visits in Mexico for 16 of its ships that were previously scheduled to stop in that country.

Itineraries for vessels departing between now and June 15, 2009 that included stops in Mexico have been modified. In many instances, the modification simply involved substituting an alternate port.  Full details on the modified itineraries are available at

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.  Please visit for additional details.
