We have decided to cancel all calls at Mexican ports for all current sailings and all voyages departing on Thursday, April 30th through Monday, May 4th. In many cases, we will be able to substitute the cancelled call with an alternative port. Additionally, we are working on alternatives for those itineraries impacted by this decision. Full details will be available by 5pm tomorrow. Please continue to check back as we will provide the latest information online at carnival.com. In the unlikely event that our new itinerary options are not to your liking, we will also give you the opportunity to reschedule your cruise at a later date. Those details will also be made available tomorrow.
Our primary concern is your safety. We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you updated if and when changes are made.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you aboard your "Fun Ship" cruise.
These are the ships that will be rerouted. Some will have extra sea days, some will go to Key West or Nassau or San Francisco.

For the most part, the itinerary changes don't look all that bad. The cancelled cruises are a real bummer. I know this is horrible for Mexico and pray it doesn't effect other countries as severely as it has there. Does anyone know what the magic number is for the CDC? More and more cases are popping up in the US. Are they going to restrict us from going abroad because of this?
I just talked with a friend that runs a business in Cozumel. The Governor is talking with the cruise lines to see if there is anything they can do to reassure the tourists to come back since they are an island.
This staff is on half hours and half pay for now.
I get a little annoyed at folks complaining about a cruise being disrupted when people are dying and so many people's means of making a living is gone until the ships come back.
Over cautious actions is what will give us the "privilege" of complaining (about the over cautious actions) that it never turned into something really big.
I was notising that the Carnival Glory was not one of the ships mentioned to be cancelling ports. Does anyone know anything about this. I am leaving on the Carnival Glory May 9th. She is traveling to some Mexican port next week.
