Costa Cruises drops Priests from cruises

Costa Cruises has suddenly (actually last year, without warning or notice) dis-continued their long-standing policy of having a Catholic priest on all its cruises.  The cruise line is based in Italy, but is also going to be sailing from Fort Lauderdale, beginning December 20, 2015.  

We have inquired as to whether they might have a Catholic priest on the December 20th sailing, since they will be sailing over Christmas.  Their itinerary calls for them to be in Honduras from 8:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m. on the 24th and Cayman Islands from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Christmas Day.  We have had no reply, so you will probably not have a priest on board.
