Ships Scatter to Avoid Tropical Storm Dolly
(10 p.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Dolly in the Western Caribbean has kicked off a first round of itinerary changes. Carnival Cruise Lines rerouted several ships this morning to avoid rough seas and inclement weather caused by the storm, which is currently packing maximum sustained winds of about 50 miles per hour.

Carnival Liberty remained at sea today in lieu of a call at Cozumel. The ship will visit Cozumel tomorrow, instead, originally a scheduled sea day.

Carnival Inspiration called at Key West today in lieu of Grand Cayman.

Carnival's Holiday called at Key West today in lieu of Progreso.

Carnival Imagination visited Ocho Rios today and will call at Grand Cayman tomorrow instead of the other way around.

Though the tropical storm watch has been discontinued for Belize, a tropical storm warning remains in effect for Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, which includes Cozumel and Progreso. Also, hurricane and tropical storm watches have been issued for areas along Texas' southeast coast.

Dolly is moving toward the west-northwest at a clip of 16 m.p.h.; forecast models have Dolly reaching hurricane status over the Gulf of Mexico sometime tomorrow -- and making landfall near the border of Mexico and Texas toward the end of the week.

We'll keep you posted.
