Fay throws some cruises off course

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On August - 17 - 2008

Tropical Storm Fay is causing some changes to several Western Caribbean cruises so far. Carnival changed ports for two of its vessels –Carnival Valor, which sails Sunday from Miami, and Carnival Inspiration, which sails Monday from Tampa.

However, lines are monitoring the storm which is expected to pass over the western portion of Cuba tonight and near the Florida Keys on Monday night. As of Sunday afternoon no other cruise lines announced changes in their Western Caribbean itineraries.
Forecasters expect Fay to strength to a hurricane over the next 24 hours. Fay is expected to skirt the Gulf Coast of Florida and could make landfall near Tampa on Tuesday.
