Swine flu threat changes cruise ship routine

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Cruise ship passengers returning to Mobile
will be observed for any signs of swine flu.

Carnival's Holiday returns Thursday from a Gulf of Mexico cruise
that stopped Monday in Progreso in Mexico, but did not make its
scheduled stop in Cozumel.

As passengers leave the vessel in Mobile, federal Border Patrol
agents will be watching them closely and looking for signs of
sickness.

Hand sanitation stations have been installed in the cruise terminal, which got an extra scrubbing this week.

In a statement, Carnival Cruise Lines officials stressed that nobody on their ships has had swine flu.

They also said they'll be going to alternate ports at least through May 4th because of the flu threat.
