On the west coast Monterey CA has Ends Support for Cruise Ships

The Monterey City Council has voted to end its support for visiting cruise ships, potentially ending their anchorage off the Monterey coast. The decision was made due to environmental concerns, including a 2002 incident where a cruise ship dumped contaminated fluids off the coast. Although cruises generated $1.5 million in 2019, local business owners on Old Fisherman's Wharf view the revenue as essential. The city doesn't have the power to ban cruise ships, but local business owners aim to find ways to continue cruise visits through the private sector. The Cruise Lines International Association called the move disappointing and said at least 19 cruises with 60,000 passengers were planned for Monterey this year.

Cruise Cancelled: Typhoon Forces Carnival Ship to Turn Back, Passengers Receive Onboard Credit as Compensation

The Carnival Luminosa cruise ship has had its South Pacific itinerary cancelled due to the development of Tropical Cyclone Gabrielle off the coast of Queensland. On February 8th, guests were informed that the planned calls to Lifou Island, Noumea in New Caledonia and Mystery Island, Vanuatu were no longer possible. The ship had to change course to remain a safe distance from the storm and will now be enjoying a few days at sea before heading back towards Brisbane. Carnival is compensating guests for the change in itinerary with a $200 onboard credit for each stateroom and a 50% future cruise credit for a future Carnival cruise. The ship's master, Captain Carmelo Marino, remains committed to ensuring the rest of the cruise is enjoyable and memorable for guests. The ship is homeported from Brisbane and offers cruises around Australia and various ports in the South Pacific.
