The Carnival Freedom, Carnival Magic, Carnival Dream, Carnival Triumph, and Carnival Legend all have made mid-cruise itinerary changes due to Tropical Storm Ernesto. In most cases swapping an Eastern Caribbean port-of-call instead of going to Grand Cayman, Honduras, or Belize.
The Disney Fantasy switched from it’s western Caribbean itinerary over to it’s Eastern Caribbean itinerary.
The beauty of cruising during Hurricane season is that the cruise ships are able change their itineraries to avoid the storms. Land-based vacationers in Belize or Honduras will have to wait out tropical storm Ernesto which by landfall will most likely be Hurricane Ernesto.
After crossing Belize and the Yucatan Peninsula, Ernesto is projected to head toward central Mexico. If Ernesto follows this path, there should not be any additional cruise impacts from Ernesto.
We will continue to track Tropical Storm Ernesto and will report back if there are updates that impact cruisers.[box]Click to Subscribe to get CruiseSource posts in your email.[/box]
