FLOYD DIVERTS DESTINY FROM V.I. THIS WEEK

Because of Hurricane Floyd's presence in the region, Carnival Cruise Lines has diverted its Carnival Destiny to a Western Caribbean itinerary this week, so it won't call at St. Croix on Wednesday or St. Thomas on Thursday.
As a result, Harbor Night festivities planned in Frederiksted have been canceled for this week.
The Destiny can accommodate 2,100 passengers.
According to a release from The West Indian Company Ltd., the Norway and the Grandeur of the Seas will call as usual at St. Thomas on Wednesday and the Emerald will be in port here on Friday as scheduled.
