Will Unrest in Honduras Impact Cruise Ship Calls?
Roatan (4 p.m. EDT) -- Due to a military coup in Honduras, the U.S. Department of State has today issued a travel alert recommending that American citizens defer all non-essential travel to the Central American country until further notice. British nationals are being advised by the U.K.'s Foreign and Commonwealth Office to stay away from large gatherings and places of public protest.

At this point, however, no cruise ship itineraries have been affected. Two Carnival Cruise Lines ships are scheduled to call at the Honduran island of Roatan in the next few days -- Carnival Valor on Wednesday and Carnival Legend on Friday.

Carnival expects these ships to call as scheduled. A cruise line spokesman tells us that there are currently no issues in Roatan, and that the line will continue to monitor the situation via local contacts.

We'll keep you posted.
