Cruise Port Forced to Close Due to Hurricane Harvey, Carnival Ships to Remain Safely at Sea
It's spending Friday night in Cozumel, Mexico. Not only will the ships be adding food and supplies for the extended journey, but they will also allow passengers to disembark and return to Galveston by other means of transportation if they choose.
Even if the ships make it to port, some passengers may not be able to make it to Galveston if roads are flooded in the low-lying areas leading to the port city.
Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert briefed President Donald Trump on the hurricane's progress and preparations for its landing, a national security official said Thursday afternoon.
According to ABC13, three of the ships are owned by Carnival Cruises and a remaining boat belongs to Royal Caribbean. It is expected to remain closed until the storm has passed and a port assessment has been completed. The large cruise ship will enter the port once it reopens which could be Sunday evening or on Monday.
The Carnival Breeze ship still remains in Cozumel, Mexico, and will return to Galveston on Sunday, while the Royal Caribbean's Liberty of Seas cruise ship left Cozumel on Friday and is scheduled to reach Galveston on Sunday. According to the local ABC affiliate, several historical sites in the Galveston area - including the Tall Ship Elissa - have closed and plan to remain shuttered until at least Sunday. Cruise details will be finalized once we have confirmed our arrival into Galveston.
Guests who wish to cancel their cruise may do so without penalty and receive a future cruise credit. Additionally, guests who pre-purchased any of our beverage packages will receive a pro-rated refund. "We are actively monitoring path and progression of Hurricane Harvey and will make sure to inform our guests of any itinerary changes", the company said. Liberty of the Seas is now still on her original schedule of arriving in Galveston on Sunday.
Two of the Carnival ships are diverting to New Orleans, where they will let people off if they don't want to wait around until it's safe to dock in Texas.
