The Carnival Pride is currently en route to Baltimore, Maryland and is positioned well ahead of the storm, according to a statement from Carnival Cruise Lines. Carnival said it has escalated the ship’s speed to arrive in Baltimore early. The ship is now scheduled to arrive Saturday morning and begin debarkation at approximately 7am. The vessel was originally scheduled to arrive on Sunday morning.

All guests will be required to disembark on Saturday morning and the ship will then be moved to an alternate location in the vicinity as directed by the United States Coast Guard where it will remain until the storm passes.

The next voyage, which was scheduled to depart Sunday afternoon will instead depart on Monday. Guests on both affected voyages will receive a one-day pro-rated refund for the missed day of the voyage.
