Tropical Storm Franklin is threatening cruise ports in Mexico and Belize as it heads towards land.

Tropical Storm Franklin is threatening some popular cruise ports and there are currently Tropical Storms warnings for Cozumel, Belize City and all along parts of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The storm is expected to reach the coast later this afternoon.

Several cruise ships are in the region with Carnival Triumph and Disney Fantasy calling in Cozumel today and then Carnival Breeze and Carnival Paradise tomorrow. As Franklin moves inland the threat towards cruise ships is expected to be less.

At the moment the National Hurricane Center has reported that Tropical Storm Franklin has maximum sustained winds of 50 MPH and is 370 KM east of Belize City where thankfully no cruise ships are calling at until Wednesday.

The storm could become a Hurricane before it hits the coast so there will be high ocean swells and bad weather conditions in the region. Tropical Storm Franklin will head through the Yucatan Peninsula and then the path puts it back out on the Gulf of Mexico towards Mexico’s main east coast.

Cruise Hive will keep readers informed on any new developments affecting the cruise industry.

UPDATE:

Cruise Critic reports Carnival Breeze has changed the itinerary due to Tropical Storm Franklin. The ships current 7-night Western Caribbean cruise will sail a sea day on Tuesday, call at Roatan on Wednesday and swap around the ports of Roatan and Belize.
