Carnival Reroutes Two Ships to Avoid Hurricane Matthew

(Saturday, October 1, 10an) In addition to the two Royal Caribbean sailings we covered yesterday, Carnival has now decided to reroute two ships to avoid Hurricane Matthew.

Carnival Splendor's six-night western Caribbean cruise from Miami on October 2 was scheduled to go in a clockwise pattern around the western Caribbean. Carnival has rerouted it to go the opposite direction, but visiting the same ports. It will now visit Cozumel on Tuesday, Grand Cayman on Wednesday, Ocho Rios on Thursday, and Carnival will add a call at Freeport on Friday.

Carnival Sensation's five-night cruise to the Bahamas and Grand Turk on October 1 is now going to the western Caribbean visiting Costa Maya (on Monday) and Cozumel (on Tuesday).

More changes will likely follow.
