Will our pre-booked shore excursions automatically be cancelled and refunded or should I go out to the web site and do this manually?
The kindest word is the unkind word unsaid.

Thanks for all the replies. We have never been to Acapulco so it would have been nice to see it (the way it used to be, from what I'm reading). We were going to do a tour that included a baby turtle release, something we saw promoted on a Travel channel show years ago in a different place - decided then we wanted to do that if given the chance.We enjoyed the cliff divers during our port call several years ago! The divers were waiting at the "exit" from the viewing area at the end of their dives with their arms outstretched, palms open, waiting for/expecting "tips"!
We're on a B2B so there will be other ports in which to do exciting things. Looking at the whole trip, though, there aren't that many ports - 4 west bound, 5 east bound - and 1 day each way transitting the PC and one day each way "scenic cruising" (which is still, for all intents and purposes, a sea day). So 9 ports + 2 PC transits, leaves 17 at sea days - good thing we like them!
Received the following from HAL re: our PC itinerary:Thanks for letting us know. I've been expecting this, sadly.
"Due to guest safety concerns the call to Acapulco has been replaced with a day at sea and the departure from Huatulco has been moved to 11 pm."
