CORRECTED: Carnival cancels some Belize calls for two ships

By Jerry Limone

Carnival Cruise Lines is forgoing some port calls in Belize through the end of 2013 for two ships because the port has become too congested, Carnival said.

“Although we have a confirmed berth in Belize, local officials accepted calls for additional ships. Consequently, their tender capacity is not able to effectively handle the increased volume of guests without creating long delays and limiting your time ashore,” Carnival said in a letter to customers. “Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to come to an acceptable agreement with Belize Port Authority regarding this situation.”

The Carnival Glory and the Carnival Legend, two ships that had scheduled calls in Belize this year, instead will call in Costa Maya, Mexico, for 10 departures.

Correction: Carnival has not canceled all calls in Belize in 2012, just some of them by the Carnival Glory and Carnival Legend.
