Tropical Storm Andres Sparks Cruise Itinerary Change
(3 p.m. EST) -- Tropical Storm Andres, the first named storm of the Pacific hurricane season, continues to make headway along the southwestern coast of Mexico. At least one line has tweaked an itinerary in response to the storm.
Maximum sustained winds have reached 70 miles per hour, and the National Hurricane Center is forecasting that Andres should become a hurricane later today. At 11 a.m. EDT, the NHC said Andres was located about 55 miles south-southwest of Manzanillo, a popular cruise port on Mexican Riviera cruises.
The only other ship in the region in Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas, which is set to visit Cabo San Lucas today, Mazatlan on Wednesday, June 24 and Puerto Vallarta on Friday, June 25. Royal Caribbean has yet to announce itinerary changes.
