No one can predict the future of this issue. No one knows. A hurricane could come in, the well could be capped, something else cold go wrong.

The only thing we know is what we know everyday and how it effects its surroundings everyday.

Anything else is just speculation and until Carnival says otherwise it is business as usual.

That is right -anything can happen. Biggest concern is the northern gulf coast at the moment but who knows what the weather will bring which could change everything. I have a cruise booked in September and I am not concerned. IMO, I really don't think you have anything to worry about.

only time will tell. live in the tampa bay area. hasn't come ashore here. what the real concern is if this oil gets in the loop current, then it could travel around the southern tip of the state and up the west coast. alot depends on BP"s productivity and our upcoming hurricane season. we can only hope for the best. wanting to book another cruise myself.

You are so right..... I guess I like to get comfort from speculations.....


Thank you

What is the current thing being done for the wild life/ocean out there?

I really think this is so scary people...... I mean really. We have the knowledge why is it this is so slow...... So many lives are changing for unemployment/now our wildlife/family busnesses for the fisherman

I am so sad for this all

Default Can anyone say anything about the oil spill and August cruise to the bahamas?

Yeah, I am going Aug 20th out of NOLA and I hope nothing changes cause I don't want to change air flights. My travel agent said they would get any information and relay it back as soon as he gets it; so I guess I am "standing by" but still packing cause I am thinking Positive!!!!! Take care everyone and hope our vacations won't be harmed

I can say with certainty that:

(1) We DO have an oil spill.
(2) You DO have an August cruise booked to the Bahamas.
