A representative of Carnival Cruise Line, one of the major cruise lines in United States stated that Carnival Valor and Carnival Freedom are currently keeping a safe distance from the storm as they head back to the port, while Carnival Breeze will remain docked overnight in Cozumel. This will cause a rapid decline in the tourism line.
After coping the post hurricane situation, the Carnival Breeze Cruise Ship will then depart for Galveston Port tomorrow afternoon to be in a position to debark the guests when the port reopens.
According the officials of the Carnival Cruise, their intention is to garage the ships in Galveston Port as soon as the port opens. The duration of the cruise will have to be shortened and the itinerary modified.
The cruise details will be finalized once the arrival into Galveston is confirmed.
The guests who sail will obtain a pro-rated refund of their cruise fare for missed days and refund of any pre-purchased Carnival Adventures for canceled ports.
Additionally, guests who pre-purchased any of the beverage packages from Carnival Line up will receive a pro-rated refund.
Meanwhile, another cruise company Royal Caribbean, having their cruise, Liberty of the Seas is also keeping a safe distance behind the storm as the ship returns to Galveston.
The Port of New Orleans also continues to report that it does not expect any impacts on port operations by the hurricane. The port authority will monitor the development of the storm in the coming days.
