Tropical Storm Lowell Loses Strength
(September 9, 3:30 p.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Lowell continues to weaken in the Pacific Ocean. Now moving at a sluggish 7 miles per hour, the storm's winds have also decreased from 60 m.p.h. late last night to just 45 m.p.h. today. Lowell is currently about 250 miles southwest of the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where cruise port Cabo San Lucas is located.

Forecasters from the National Hurricane Center predict that by Thursday what's left of the storm will pass over the peninsula, causing even more weakening before it continues on into the mainland of Mexico.

We've been in touch with the cruise lines, and aside from Carnival Elation trading Cabo San Lucas for a sea day today, there haven't been any other itinerary changes due to Lowell. Since the storm is steadily weakening, it is unlikely that there will be any more alterations this week.

Of course, we'll stay on top of it and keep you informed should anything change.
