At least three cruise lines made changes to their itineraries over the weekend, given the proximity of Tropical Storm Cristobal, which is heading north in the Atlantic Ocean

Royal Caribbean International's (www.cruisingpower.com) Oasis of the Seas did not call at Nassau on Sunday, Aug. 24. Instead, it spent the day at sea. That line's Freedom of the Seas also won't call today at CocoCay, the line's private Bahamian island; it too will spend the day at sea. 

Disney Cruise Line (www.disneytravelagents.com) has made at least one adjustment. Disney Fantasy will call at San Juan, Puerto Rico on Tuesday, Aug. 26, rather than at St. Maarten as originally scheduled. 

Carnival Cruise Lines (www.goccl.com) made additional changes to itineraries on Sunday. Five cruises are impacted. Here's the list -- showing the revised itinerary in the left column, and the original itinerary in the right column.
