Hurricane Sandy is throwing a wrench in vacation plans.

The Carnival Glory cruise ship left Norfolk Monday. Passengers were headed for a six-day cruise to the Bahamas.

But now that Sandy is headed in the same direction, the ship will only be in the Bahamas for one day.

The ship will dock in Florida later tonight. Carnival officials say the goal is to keep the ship  150 miles away from the storm.

The plan is to be back in Norfolk on Sunday.
