Carnival Liberty will no longer stop in the scheduled port of Progreso, Mexico on the May 21 sailing out of Galveston, Texas. The five night cruise is being shortened by one day so the ship’s bow thrusters can be repaired. The current cruise on Carnival Liberty will visit all scheduled port stops.

Passengers who are on Carnival Liberty’s May 21 sailing will receive $100 in onboard credit as compensation for the missed port.  Passengers also have the choice to cancel the cruise for a full refund of their cruise fare.  The cruise line expects the issue to be resolved by mid June and all other cruises on Carnival Liberty will continue as scheduled.

The May 21 sailing will now be a four night cruise out of Galveston with a stop in Cozumel, Mexico.  The ship will arrive back in port on May 25, one day ahead of schedule. However, passengers will be able to stay on the ship while docked in Galveston until the morning of May 26, the original debarkation day.
