Hurricane Beryl made landfall on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula just north of Tulum earlier today and the storm currently has maximum sustained winds of 100 mph.  All cruise ports in the region are closed today.

Carnival Cruise Line has been monitoring the storm from their Fleet Operations Center and has been altering itineraries throughout the week to keep guests and crew members safe.

Carnival Valor departed from New Orleans yesterday on a four day cruise with one stop in Cozumel on Saturday.

Carnival Valor’s Captain Mazzi sent the following message to guests on the cruise ship regarding their planned visit to Cozumel:

“Hurricane Beryl continues its westerly path across the Caribbean and is set to impact the Yucatan Peninsula in the next few days, passing south of Cozumel, Friday afternoon. The weather looks promising for Saturday, but local authorities must conduct an assessment after the storm passes Cozumel. They will keep us updated about port conditions.”

“For now, we’re heading to Cozumel, as planned, remaining a safe distance from the storm. We will provide timely updates as we sail.”

“Safety is our priority, and we will remain a good distance from the storm.”

Carnival Cruise Line previously made the following changes to itineraries due to Hurricane Beryl:

  • Carnival Paradise will visit Nassau, The Bahamas on Saturday, July 6 instead of visiting Cozumel, Mexico
  • Carnival Breeze did not visit Progresso, Mexico as scheduled on July 4, 2024
  • Carnival Horizon will add a visit to Nassau on Friday, July 5 instead of visiting Cozumel on Thursday, July 4. The ship’s visit to Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands on Wednesday, July 3 was canceled
  • Carnival Liberty visited Cozumel on Tuesday, July 2 instead of Friday, July 5

Carnival Cruise Line’s Brand Ambassador John Heald has been issuing updates on behalf of the cruise line on his Facebook page.
