We are @ 400 MI from NOLA and are getting all sorts of local news + we have some friends who live in the NOLA area.
Bluntly put, it is bad
. I am a first time cruiser so I have absolutely no clue what kind of priority the Cruise terminal will have (not to mention the logistics required for resupply & replinishment of the Conquest).
We sail ~~ errr were supposed to sail ~~ on 9 Oct and I honestly do not know at this point if the terminal will be ready by then -- much less the hotel we are (were?) staying at for 3 days prior.
Since this is beyond the realm of most folks experience I am not sure what kind of advice the more experienced folks can offer...would they relocate the Conquest? Apparently that is what they are doing for the Sensation (the SEP cruises are sailing from Galveston)
I can only hope that Carnival gives us ample warning if they relocate the port so we can make travel arrangements.
Man, my heart goes out to the folks who drove to NOLA for las week's cruise...their vehicles are in NOLA and will probably remain there for a while...
