Carnival Cruise Lines says it will stop at Mexican ports again, now that health officials are no longer recommending against non-essential travel to the country.
The cruise ship operator said Friday it should begin making stops in Mexico in mid-June, once it completes all currently scheduled travel itineraries.
Canival was one of several cruise ship operators that redirected its ships away from Mexico in late April, as worries about the swine flu spread. The Centers for Disease Control had recommended that people restrict any non-essential travel to the country.
Carnival Corp. said Monday that its second-quarter profit would be 5 cents per share less because of the itinerary changes. The impact on the full-year profit is expected to be 10 cents, but could be higher, the company warned. It said it will continue to monitor booking trends.
Miami-based Carnival is owned by Carnival Corp. It said a ship-by-ship list of itineraries could be found on its Web site.
