Carnival Cruise Lines will be staying away from Mexican ports of call through mid-June because of the swine flu.

The Miami-based company said Monday that it has canceled all port of call visits for 16 of its ships through June 15. The trips have been modified, with some ships arriving at different ports.

Carnival previously said it modified itineraries through May 11 to avoid the country.

Guests who want to sail on a different trip can receive a refund in the form of a future cruise credit equal to the full amount paid for the voyage.
