As previously reported, Carnival Cruise Lines has cancelled all port of call visits in Mexico for 16 of its ships that were previously scheduled to stop in that country. Itineraries for vessels that included stops in Mexico have been modified through June 15, 2009. In many instances, the modification simply involves substituting an alternate port. Guests who do not wish to sail on a modified itinerary may opt to receive a refund in the form of a future cruise credit equal to the full amount paid for the voyage. The credit may be applied to an alternate sailing departing through the end of 2010. Compensation for missed ports/altered itineraries (where applicable) for guests who sail varies by itinerary. With 4- and 5-day cruises from Galveston and New Orleans that are being converted to 7-day voyages, those guests may opt to receive their refund in the form of a future cruise credit or money back.
If you are currently booked on a modified sailing which departs between May 14, 2009 and June 15, 2009, you must advise Carnival of the cancellation of your current cruise by May 7, 2009 in order to be eligible for the future cruise credit.
