Holland America Cruises In Mexico

This is good news. My grandma and grandpa are on Holland America cruise line and they had about 5 stops in Mexico....I was really worried but I just found this! Wheewww

Meanwhile, several of the world's largest cruise lines said they were suspending all stops in Mexico.
Carnival Corp., and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., the world's two largest cruise lines, made the announcement in response to recommendations by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to avoid non-essential travel to the country. Princess Cruises and Holland America also suspended all stops to Mexico.At least 159 people have died in Mexico from influenza and its complications, and more than 2,000 cases have been reported. It is not clear, however, what proportion of those deaths and cases are attributable to swine flu. So far, seven of the deaths have been firmly linked to the virus.
