It's not looking very good in New Orleans. We have a hotel registration in the French Quarter. I don't know if the hotel is even still there. It looks horrible. I watched a news reel this morning that was just awful. I am praying for those people.
The latest from Carnival:

We have made the following storm-related itinerary changes due to Hurricane Katrina:
NEW ORLEANS CRUISES
The Carnival Conquest August 21, 2005 cruise returned to Galveston, Texas on August 28, 2005. The ship stayed in Galveston until Monday at 12:00 noon Guests debarked either Sunday or Monday.
The Sensation August 27, 2005 cruise will now return to Galveston, Texas on September 1, 2005. Guests will debark and take air or land transportation back home.
The Sensation September 1, 2005 cruise will depart and return to Galveston, Texas.
The Sensation September 5, 2005 cruise will now depart and return to Galveston, Texas.
Please note that all in-coming access into New Orleans and the Port is closed at this time. Guests that parked at the pier in New Orleans will not be able to access their cars until there is a complete assessment of the area. The Port of New Orleans hotline (1-866-476-7866) will provide updated information about access to the port area as it becomes available.
I have a funny feeling that the cruise on the 19th will be sailing from Galveston as well (as probably will my Conquest cruise on 9 Oct...)
Yes folks it is that
bad in NOLA...
