Bad weather conditions hit the region and both vessels could not to arrive back at their home ports as scheduled. Carnival released itinerary adjustments for the ships:
- Carnival Fantasy was scheduled to arrive back in Mobile on Monday morning after a 5-night western Caribbean cruise but the weather has forced the cruise line to make adjustments for its next sailing. Carnival Fantasy will be sailing a shortened 4-day cruise due to its late arrival back into Mobile, Alabama. The ship is set to arrive at around 11:00 a.m. today, Jan 24, Tuesday. The new itinerary will only include a call in Progreso, Mexico and will not be calling in Cozumel.
- Carnival Valor had to take a long way around to get back to its homeport in Galveston, Texas. Carnival Valor was scheduled to arrive on Monday morning but has been delayed. Carnival has posted the ship will be arriving into Galveston at around 10:00 p.m. on Monday but this means the next 5-night itinerary has been changed. The vessel will now be sailing a 4-day cruise departing on Tuesday, Jan 24. The ship will be calling in Cozumel, Mexico only.
Guests will be getting any funds back for missing the original port of calls and also have the option to refund if they wish.
