Cruise lines hurry to avoid Category 1 hurricane

Carnival Cruise Lines alters eight of its cruise itineraries

With what just a few hours previously was a tropical depression quickly evolving into Category 1 Hurricane Rina, cruise lines in the Caribbean have had to speedily reroute itineraries. Carnival Cruise Lines has altered eight of its cruise-ship routes so that they avoid the strengthening storm.
For example, an eight-day cruise on Carnival Freedom is spending October 26 in Montego Bay rather than in Costa Rica, then October 27 at sea instead of in Colon, Panama, and October 28 in the Turks & Caicos rather than at sea. The rest of that itinerary remains the same. But seven other itineraries have similarly been changed so that the hurricane passes them by.
