We continue to evaluate and monitor reports regarding cases of swine influenza in Mexico and the United States, as well as other regions around the globe.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have recently recommended that travelers avoid non-essential travel to Mexico.
As a result of this recommendation, Disney Cruise Line has modified the May 2, 2009 Western Caribbean voyage of the Disney Magic to include a stop in Nassau, The Bahamas, instead of Cozumel, Mexico. Our itinerary will be as follows:
Saturday – Depart Port Canaveral
Sunday – Key West, Florida
Monday – Day At Sea
Tuesday – Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (tender ashore)
Wednesday – Day at Sea
Thursday – Nassau, The Bahamas
Friday – Disney’s Castaway Cay, The Bahamas
Saturday – Arrive Port Canaveral
At this time, no itinerary changes have been made to future Western Caribbean voyages. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation in Mexico and make future modifications as needed.
