Two Carnival Cruise Ships Make Itinerary Changes
On Tuesday afternoon, Carnival Cruise Line confirmed to Cruise Radio that two of their ships would experience relatively minor itinerary changes because of Dorian.

Disney Cruise Line Itinerary Change
Disney Cruise Line announced that the current sailing of the Disney Fantasy would exchange its originally scheduled Eastern Caribbean itinerary for one sailing the Western Itinerary in order to avoid the wrath of Tropical Storm Dorian. As a result, the ship will be stopping at Grand Cayman and Cozumel as opposed to Tortola and St. Thomas. Despite this change, they were hoping to call on Castaway Cay — the line’s very popular private destination — on Friday, August 30th.
