Another Carnival ship has been forced to alter its itinerary due to the large Hurricane Matthew which is currently causing disruption across central parts of the Caribbean.

The Carnival Elation has become the latest ship to change itinerary departing on October 3. Cruise Hive readers can see the previous Carnival ships affected by the storm here. Elation has cancelled its port of calls at Half Moon Cay and Nassu, Bahamas. Instead the ship will sail to Key West, Florida and Freeport Bahamas.

The itinerary will still include two days at sea before returning back to its home port in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, October 8.
