(October 20) -- Tropical Storm Kiko -- the 11th named storm of the Pacific season -- has hooked northwest and is not expected to make direct landfall near Zihuatanejo this weekend as previously forecasted.
However, a tropical storm watch remains in effect for portions of Mexico's Pacific coast including Manzanillo. Kiko could become a hurricane by tomorrow (current maximum sustained winds are near 70 miles per hour).
At this point, no cruise itinerary changes have been announced. We'll keep you posted.
