Carnival Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean International tweaked their Caribbean itineraries due to Hurricane Gustav.
The Carnival Conquest’s seven-day cruise, which left Galveston on Sunday, will skip its scheduled Wednesday stop in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and will instead add a stop in Progreso, Mexico, on Friday.
The ship will call in Grand Cayman and Cozumel, as scheduled.
The Carnival Triumph will skip Grand Cayman on Thursday, and will spend the day at sea. The Triumph also will skip Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on Friday, opting instead for Half Moon Cay, Carnival’s private retreat in the Bahamas. It will add a stop in Nassau on Saturday instead of spending a day at sea.
Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas, which departed from Port Canaveral on Sunday, did not stop at its private island in Labadee, Haiti, on Tuesday. The ship will skip Ocho Rios on Wednesday, the Cayman Islands on Thursday and Cozumel on Friday.
Instead, the ship will spend Tuesday at sea and call in St. Thomas on Wednesday and St. Maarten on Thursday.
The ship will return to Port Canaveral on Aug. 31, as scheduled.
Norwegian Cruise Line has not made any changes to its itineraries.
