Carnival cruise ships are now being impacted due to Hurricane Humberto by changing itineraries to keep guests and crew safe.
Hurricane Humberto Itineraries Changes
Hurricane Humberto is growing in strength and Carnival Cruise Line is being forced to alter ship itineraries to keep guests and crew safe. The storm is currently off the U.S. east coast where several major cruise ports are located. The good news is that the popular ports in Florida are not being impacted so those departures have limited impact compared to the recent Hurricane Dorian.
We’ll go through each cruise ship with the latest updates. Also, remember that the Hurricane is always developing and changing so you’ll need to keep checking.
Carnival Breeze’s 7-day sailing to Bermuda which departed Port Canaveral on September 14 will continue as normal. The ship is expected to return to Florida as scheduled on September 21.
Carnival Pride is currently now sailing an altered itinerary with a call at Grand Turk and Amber Cove instead if its original scheduled cruise to Bermuda. Guests are being offered a 25% off future cruise credit. The Spirit-class vessel will arrive back in Baltimore as normal on September 22.
As expected the Carnival Sunrise September 16 departure from New York City has been impacted too. On Wednesday the ship will call to the Port of Charleston, South Carolina. The ship is still planning on sailing to Bermuda once the Hurricane passes.
Carnival Cruise Line continues to monitor the develop of Humberto along with any other storm threats in the Caribbean and beyond at its Fleet Operations Center in Miami. Always check for official updates from the cruise line first if you think your voyage may be impacted.
