SEPTEMBER 3, 2008 - 6:30 PM

We are closely monitoring the progress of Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Ike. All of Carnival's ships will continue to operate at a safe distance from this storm at all times. Our number one priority is the safety of our guests and crew.

We have made some itinerary changes for several departures this week in order to provide our guests with an enjoyable shore experience, while operating the ships in the safest and most comfortable conditions possible. These are listed below:

Carnival Ecstasy Wed., 9/3 departure from Galveston: The ship will sail on a 3 Day Cruise-To-Nowhere

Carnival Fantasy Thur., 8/28 departure from Mobile: The ship was delayed arriving back into Mobile. The U.S. Coast Guard would not allow any ship traffic to enter the Port until they had completed a full evaluation of the impact from Hurricane Gustav to the channel and important navigation aids. We expect the Carnival Fantasy to dock in Mobile at about 5:00 PM.

Carnival Fantasy Wed., 9/3 departure from Mobile: The ship will sail on a 4 Day Cruise visiting Progreso, Yucatan (Fri) and returning Sun., 9/7

Carnival Miracle Fri., 8/29 departure from New York: The ship will visit Port Canaveral (Mon), Freeport (Tue) and Newport, Rhode Island (Fri)

Carnival Inspiration Sat., 8/30 departure from Tampa: The ship will visit Cozumel (Tue)

Carnival Glory Sat., 8/30 departure from Pt. Canaveral: The ship will visit St. Thomas (Tue) and St. Maarten (Wed)

Carnival Liberty Sat., 8/30 departure from Miami: The ship will visit the ports of call in reverse order Ocho Rios (Mon), Grand Cayman (Tue), Cozumel (Thur)

Carnival Conquest Sun. 8/31 departure from Galveston: The ship will visit Progreso, Yucatan (Tue), Cozumel (Wed) and Grand Cayman (Thur).

Carnival Legend Sun. 8/31 departure from Tampa: The ship will visit Key West (Mon), Cozumel (Wed), Belize (Thur) and Isla Roatan (Fri)

Carnival Sensation Sun. 8/31 departure from Port Canaveral: The ship will shorten her call to Nassau (Tue) to 5:00 PM instead of staying overnight until Wednesday 6:00 AM

Carnival Triumph Sun. 8/31 departure from Miami: The ship will cancel her call to Half Moon Cay (Mon) and Grand Turk (Fri) and visit the scheduled ports of call of St. Thomas (Wed) and San Juan (Thur)
We are looking forward to welcoming our guests aboard all of the Carnival "Fun Ships". The officers, staff and crew on each of our ships are dedicated to delivering a great cruise vacation experience.
