Carnival changes position, cancels Mexican port calls

MIAMI, FL - In an about face from a recent announcement that it would go ahead with all cruises despite an outbreak of Swine Flu across Mexico, the cruise line Carnival has changed its position.

At 5:00pm Tuesday the company posted a memo on its corporate website stating that it has canceled all calls to Mexican ports starting with the Thursday, April 30th cruise launch and ending with the Monday, May 4th.

The memo read in its entirety:

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 canceled 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.
