Cruise News: Hurricane Irene Alters Carnival Cruise Lines Itineraries From Northeastern Ports

Carnival Cruise Lines Hurricane Irene Update:

We’ve been closely monitoring the forecasted path of Hurricane Irene in the Atlantic and it is now clear the track of the storm will force us to make some changes to our scheduled itineraries. As always, the safety of our guests is our number one concern and our ships will maintain a safe distance from the storm at all times.

Hurricane Irene passed thru the Bahamas yesterday. So, at this time, we can't be sure whether we will be able to make our scheduled calls to the Bahamas this weekend. We have modified the itineraries below.


In order to provide a better experience ashore, we have reversed the order of our ports of call. After sailing from New York as scheduled on Saturday, we will now visit Halifax on Monday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Saint John on Tuesday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. UPDATE: Carnival Glory will depart New York tomorrow two hours ahead of schedule at 3pm. Passengers may arrive at the pier to begin boarding at 10am and need to be checked in no later than 2:30pm.


Since Hurricane Irene is forecasted to affect the north east coast early Sunday morning, the Carnival Pride has been directed by the US Coast Guard to arrive early from the previous cruise and proceed to a secure, alternate location until the storm passes. Therefore, if the track remains the same, embarkation is scheduled for Monday, August 29th from 10am to 2pm at the Baltimore cruise terminal. Please be on the lookout for an email with additional information.

All other sailings departing on or after Friday, August 26, 2011 will continue to operate as scheduled. In the event we need to make a deviation to the itinerary, we will update our guests. Please continue to check back on for further updates.
