CRUISEFEVER.NET – The Carnival Valor will arrive 12 hours late into Port Canaveral Saturday after the ship returned to Grand Turk due to a medical emergency for one of the passengers on board.

The cruise ship is now scheduled to arrive at 6 p.m. and the cruise line is advising all guests who are scheduled to embark today to arrive no earlier than 9 p.m. Embarkation will now take place between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m., and the ship will sail shortly after.

Due to the delayed departure, the itinerary has also been slightly altered.  The ship will no longer call on Costa Maya and all passengers who pre-booked excursions for the port will receive an automatic refund.   The itinerary will now consist of three sea days (first two days of the cruise and the last day), and stops in Belize, Roatan, and Cozumel.

Carnival Cruise Line is extending a goodwill gesture to passengers by giving them a 20 percent future cruise discount due to the delayed departure and canceled port stop.

“We are very sorry for starting your vacation this way and trust you understand the safety and well being of our guests is our number one priority,” said Carnival in a statement.

Carnival Valor is a 110,000 gross ton cruise ship that can carry nearly 3,000 passengers.  The ship has been in service since 2004 and is currently sailing seven night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral.
