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.
