Cozumel cruises remain on course despite Atlantic storms

Cozumel, Q.R. — Although storms in the Atlantic have altered the course for several cruise ship lines, none of those scheduled for Cozumel have been canceled.

Over the past week, several cruise ships have altered their cruising courses to avoid storms brewing in the Atlantic, however, the 15 scheduled to land at Cozumel have not canceled. The Port Administration of Quintana Roo confirms that no changes in scheduled arrivals have been made as a result of the Atlantic storms.

All 15 ships scheduled for the island of Cozumel for the week of September 15, remain on course. In other Atlantic regions, seven ships have altered their courses this week to avoid the continual flow of storms.

Ships from Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line kept their ships away by changing itineraries, canceling ports and adjusting sailing times.

Norwegian Escape, for example, changed its September route from New York City to Bermuda. Instead, the cruise ship sailed to Port Canaveral, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay in the Bahamas.

The two ships that were reported affected by Isaac were Princess Cruises’ Caribbean Princess and Carnival’s Vista, however, the ships scheduled to arrive at the island of Cozumel for this week remain on course.

The port authority said that according to their monitoring, the forecast indicates that it is likely Isaac will dissipate once it enters the Caribbean adding that, “Until now there are no changes in the programs.”
