Tropical Storm Don Alters Cruise Itineraries

July 28, 2011

(Updated July 30, 10:30 a.m. EDT) -- According to the latest report from the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Don has weakened to a remnant low. This will be our last update.

Two Carnival ships, Carnival Elation and Carnival Imagination, sailed revised itineraries in response to Tropical Storm Don.

Elation, which was in the middle of a five-night voyage from Mobile, departed Cozumel an hour earlier than scheduled Wednesday. Imagination, which sailed a four-night itinerary from Miami, traded a call on Cozumel for a sea day Wednesday, and on Thursday, it traded a scheduled sea day for a stop at Freeport.

The storm was accompanied by winds of 50 miles per hour and prompted watches and warnings along the coast of Texas throughout the week.

No Galveston sailings were affected.
