Carnival Cruise Line pre-empts calls at Cayman, Jamaica (updated)

Carnival Cruise Line is implementing some itinerary changes on sailings set to call at Grand Cayman and Jamaica this week.

Carnival Horizon and Carnival Freedom

Update: Carnival Horizon is in Amber Cove today and will visit Grand Turk and Nassau later in the week. Carnival Freedom is in Key West today and will visit Belize and Cozumel later in the week.

'A number of Caribbean destinations continue to work through their policies with regards to cruise ship visits. And while we are following all US CDC and World Health Organization screening protocols and guidelines, we want to avoid any possibility of a visit to a destination where there is uncertainty or we risk being turned away,' the company said in a statement.

'No health situation on board to trigger concern'

'To be clear, there is no health situation on board to trigger this concern, but we are making this change to avoid even the possibility of a disruption.'

Follows MSC Meraviglia uncertainty last week

Last week, MSC Meraviglia was turned away by Jamaica and Grand Cayman and ultimately accepted by Cozumel. No coronavirus was detected on board.
