Carnival cancels another cruise due to hurricane

By Tom Stieghorst

Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled a second cruise because of Hurricane Sandy.

The Carnival Pride's departure from Baltimore was canceled after the U.S. Coast Guard informed Carnival that the ship could not depart from Chesepeake Bay.

Carnival said it could not be determined when the restriction would be lifted, so it had to cancel the seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruise.

Earlier, Carnival canceled a Carnival Glory cruise from Norfolk, Va., because the cruise terminal was behind a flood-protection gate that Carnival said was likely to be closed.

As of Monday morning, Carnival said it has canceled or altered the itineraries of 13 cruises due to Hurricane Sandy.
