Carnival Cruise Ship Rerouting to Virginia Following Baltimore Bridge Collapse

Cruise Ship Disembarks in Norfolk as Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge Collapses, and Businesses Suffer

After a weeklong Caribbean vacation, travelers aboard the Carnival Legend ship are set to disembark at Norfolk, Virginia instead of Baltimore due to the collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on Tuesday morning. The cruise line is providing guests with a bus back to Baltimore due to the Port of Baltimore being closed.

Carnival has announced that the ship’s next weeklong cruise will also depart from Norfolk, with future plans to return to Maryland yet to be updated for guests. Other cruise lines like Royal Caribbean and American Cruise Line that sail from the Port of Baltimore are yet to comment on potential itinerary changes as a result of the port’s closure.

Business experts estimate that the ongoing shutdown of the port could mean a daily loss of $15 million in economic activity, despite it being a smaller cruise departure hub compared to others in the US. The bridge collapse has caused significant disruptions for travelers and businesses alike, but efforts are being made to restore normal operations as soon as possible.
