Carnival Cruise Line has pulled several cruises on Carnival Miracle and Carnival Radiance this autumn.
All sailings on Radiance between October 17 and 28 inclusive have been scrapped and voyages on Miracle departing on November 3 and November 8 have also been cancelled.
Radiance was scheduled to operate three or four-night cruises from Long Beach, California, to Baja, Mexico, during that period.
Miracle’s cancelled cruises were five-night Mexican Riviera sailings out of Long Beach.
Affected passengers were told in an email that Miracle would go into dry dock later this year, with the scheduled cruises instead taking place on Radiance.
Carnival brand ambassador John Heald wrote: “For those of you sailing in October and November on Carnival Miracle and Carnival Radiance you will (if you have not already) received a letter regarding some changes as we will be sending Carnival Miracle to dry dock.
“So for the Hawaii cruises and a few others you will be enjoying the Carnival Radiance complete with all the bells and whistles and of course Shaq’s Big Chicken.
“To those who have had their cruises cancelled I do, of course, send you my most sincere apologies. My colleagues will of course look after you, help you book a new cruise and the letters will explain what we are doing for you.”
