Cruise Lines International Association said all of its member cruise lines sailing from ports in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida are operating, although itineraries are occasionally altered because of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. "The cruise industry, like the Gulf fishing and tourism industries, is dependent on the ocean and coastal destinations for our livelihood and it is in our best interests to do whatever we can to help find solutions, recognizing that resolving this situation is largely beyond the industry's control," CLIA said in a statement.
