Tropical Storm Erika Impacts Carnival Cruise Itinerary
(11:15 a.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Erika, the fifth named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, is currently located about 100 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands.

According to the 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Erika's maximum sustained winds have now decreased to 40 miles per hour. Little change is expected today, but the storm could strengthen tomorrow.

Tropical storm warnings are in place for St. Maarten, St. Martin, Guadeloupe, Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, St. Barth's, Nevis, Anguilla and St. Eustatius. A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are likely within 24 hours.

Cruise Ship Itinerary Changes

Carnival Cruise Lines has altered Carnival Glory's seven-night Eastern Caribbean itinerary. The ship, which departed Port Canaveral on Saturday, will now spend a day at sea today instead of calling in St. Maarten, and a day in Grand Turk on Thursday instead of a day at sea. The ship will return to Port Canaveral on Saturday.

Weather Outlook: Next Affected Ships & Ports

Tropical Storm Erika is moving toward the west-northwest, and is expected to move through the Leeward Islands tonight or tomorrow.

There are no further itinerary changes at this point.

We'll keep you posted.
