Try going to Carnival's web site. Click on weather updates. They have changed several iteneraries this week for several ships. I know the Sensation is skipping Cozumel on their sailing this week. Let us know how your trip goes, as we are booked on Sensation in Jan 2006.

I went to the weather update page and saw that the sensation is skipping cozumel this week. I didnt say anything about the weekend though. I contacted Carnival and they said that they don't know what they're going to do. The ship leaves day after tomorrow. I was hoping someone had some inside scoop whether the shore excursion vendors were going to be open. Carnival said that they may go somewhere else. I would be ****ed if they skipped Cozumel at the last minute and not either go elsewhere or give a partial refund because this is the only port of call for this 4 night cruise.

If it's the only port of call, they will probably substitute another, should they feel Cozumel is not safe (sea/weather-wise) or in good enough shape to visit.

I'd rather look at it that the cruise line is concerned with our safety, instead of worrying about missing a port.

I don't think at this point that safety is an issue. Emily has passed over Cozumel. The issue is whether the cruise line is more interested in profit. I'm sure they'd rather say nothing and have us show up in Cozumel only to find a pile of rubish, so they can say, "we got you here, It's not or fault". The last I heard was that power was out and the roads were flooded. What if most of the excursions or messed up or closed? I am paying $800.00 per person to have fun in Cosumel, not sail in circles for 4 days, nor pay for a tour of hurricane damage.

If there is no power and the roads are flooded, there is not much the cruise lines can do. If you are really concerned, then contact your travel agent and see if they can find anything out for you. There is no guarantee that you will make the ports listed on your itenirary, if you read the fine print in the brochures and on your tickets and paperwork, you will see that the cruiselines have the right to change iteniraries if they need to. Also, Cozumel might not be in the position to except cruise ships at the port, all depends on how much damage they incurred.

Tryu going to cruisecritic.com. They have some updates on ports of call. The last I heard from that site was that Cozumel was to be up and running within 7 days. (evidently, it didn't get hit as bad) I would be more concerned with Playa Del Carmen or Costa Maya depending on which itenerary you have chosen. Unless you have travel insurance with Carnival, cancelling @ this point is a waste of time as you will not receive any refund. If they skip all ports, they will usually compensate you somewhat with some perks on board, but that will certainly not replace the ports of call you may have missed.

LovetoCruise2,
Here is an update regarding Cozumel. I was reading a post on another board from the owner of Nacchi Cocum (a popular Cozumel beach) and his report was that Cozumel faired much better than anticipated. Although there is a lot of damage around the island, they are moving quickly to clean-up and move forward. They expect Nacchi- Cocum to be up and running again in about 7-10 days.
