Bad Weather Delays Carnival Cruise Ship's Arrival Into Baltimore
carnival-pride-cruise-ship
Unexpected bad weather is forcing Carnival Pride to delay its arrival into Baltimore after a Bahamas and Florida cruise, Carnival's senior cruise director John Heald is reporting on Facebook. The late debarkation will mean the ship will set sail on its next cruise a day late, forcing an itinerary change.

Because the captain has had to reduce cruising speed to accommodate the weather conditions, the ship cannot dock until Sunday evening. Passengers onboard the current cruise will be allowed to debark Sunday from 8 - 10 p.m. or Monday from 7 - 9 a.m., essentially giving travelers an extra day onboard.

Embarkation for Carnival Pride's November 6 Bermuda cruise will now take place on November 7 from 9 a.m. to noon. The ship was scheduled to arrive in King's Wharf, Bermuda, at 1 p.m. on Tuesday and spend two nights in port. The revised itinerary has the ship arriving Wednesday at 1 p.m. and departing Thursday at 3:30 p.m.

Passengers on the impacted sailing will receive a one-day, pro-rated refund of their cruise fare (within the next two weeks); gratuities will be adjusted to account for the missed day; and any pre-purchased shore excursions for Tuesday will be refunded.

A Carnival statement says that passengers on the Bermuda cruise can receive updates via text message, by texting CCL2 to 36500.

Also, Carnival Fascination cruise travelers should know that tidal conditions are forcing a delay of that ship on Monday into Jacksonville. The ship will arrive at 10 a.m. and boarding for the next cruise will take place from 1:30 - 5 p.m. No itinerary changes are anticipated.
