Cruise Lines Revise Costa Maya Itineraries

Puerto Costa Maya in Mexico is presently closed due to damage by Hurricane Dean. As a result, new itineraries for three ships departing this weekend have been announced by Carnival Cruise Lines. The Costa Maya port is expected to remain closed for six to eight months and hopes to reopen in mid-2008.

  • Carnival Fantasy's Aug. 25 departure from New Orleans will call at Progreso instead of Costa Maya.
  • Carnival Glory's departure from Port Canaveral on Aug. 25 will call at Key West on Aug. 26, sea day on Aug. 27, Cozumel on Aug. 28, Progreso on Aug. 29, at sea on Aug. 30 and Nassau on Aug. 31.
  • Carnival Legend's Aug. 26 departure from Tampa will call at Key West on Aug. 27, at sea on Aug. 28, Ocho Rios on Aug. 29, Grand Cayman on Aug. 30, Cozumel on Aug. 31 and another sea day on Sept. 1.
Carnival is evaluating all itineraries for ships scheduled to call at Costa Maya and will announce more changes soon.

Royal Caribbean International has one ship scheduled to call at Costa Maya in the upcoming week and has announced the following itinerary change:
  • Rhapsody of the Seas, departing from Galveston on Aug. 26 will now call in Cozumel, Roatan, Playa del Carmen, and Progreso.
