Update: Tropical Storm Lowell Impacts Cabo San Lucas Call
Update, 11:10 p.m. EDT: Tropical Storm Lowell has slowed down but strengthened slightly, with winds now near 60 miles per hour. The eye of the storm is located 250 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

At this point, no additional itinerary changes have been announced due to Lowell's track. We'll keep you posted.

(September 8, 2 p.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Lowell in the Pacific Ocean is the 12th named storm for the region this year. Currently, Lowell is moving at nine miles per hour and wind speeds are at a somewhat tame 50 m.p.h. Lowell is located about 280 miles directly south of the Baja Peninsula, where the closest cruise port, Cabo San Lucas, lies right at the tip.

One cruise itinerary has already been affected by Tropical Storm Lowell. Carnival Elation, which departed from San Diego on September 6, will now sail a revised itinerary. The ship will be at sea on both Monday and Tuesday, instead of calling in Cabo San Lucas on Tuesday. On Wednesday the ship will be in Ensenada as planned. At this point, the only other ship scheduled to be in Cabo San Lucas over the next few days is Royal Caribbean's Vision of the Seas, which is set to stop there on Tuesday. No changes have been made to that itinerary as of yet.

We'll keep you posted as new information becomes available.
