Inclement Weather Alters Caribbean Cruises

Rough seas in the Caribbean this week forced some cruise ships to divert from their regularly scheduled port calls. A cold front that stirred up a choppy sea caused two Carnival ships to miss calls Thursday at Ocho Rios in Jamaica. Carnival Liberty and Carnival Imagination had to bypass the port and continue on with a day at sea. Two ships, Carnival Victory and Coral Princess, are scheduled to dock at Ocho Rios on Friday, but it was unclear at press time whether weather conditions would allow it. (DE)
