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.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
