While it is difficult to predict the storm’s path with complete certainty, at this point, it is expected that the storm will impact South and Central Florida in the next several days. The safety and security of Carnival’s guests and crew are their first priority and their ships will remain a safe distance away from the storm at all times.
Carnival is remaining in constant contact with port officials regarding potential port closures. Given the uncertainty of the storm’s impact, they expect that they may have to shorten the duration of certain cruises scheduled to depart this weekend.
