Hurricane Isaac Cruise Ship Cancellations Announced By Carnival Cruise Lines
SAN JUAN — Hurricane Isaac is the latest named storm to hit the Atlantic Ocean, so far causing an itinerary change to one cruise ship.
In order to avoid the storm, which reached hurricane status today and is expected to reach the region on Thursday, Carnival Vista has reversed its itinerary.
The ship’s eight-night Caribbean cruise that departed from Miami on September 8 will call on Sint Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan and Amber Cove; it’s expected to return to Miami on September 16 as scheduled.
Hurricane Isaac has maximum sustained wind speeds of 75 miles per hour and is expected to strengthen during the next day or two before weaking when it reaches the Lesser Antilles sometime around Thursday, September 13.
Hurricane Florence is also in the Atlantic, currently on course for the East Coast, and causing cruise deviations on Bermuda itineraries.
Cruise Critic will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
