I hope they give us a little notice if they switch back to Galveston. I have already changed hotels twice! Im like you, curious about the Houston port. From what I am hearing,Galveston is paranoid that Houston will take their business so they are doing everything they can to get the Port back up quick.
Julie I was watching KHOU tv in Houston last night and yes they said Carnival will be back in Galveston on Oct 1.. We sail on Oct 4 but I was kinda hoping to see that new terminal but I guess I could always drive by it.
That is not accurate information!
The earliest for Carnival departures from Galveston will be (if everything goes as planned) November 6 for the Ecstasy and November 9 for the Conquest.
I have a friend who lives not far from the Galveston terminal. From what I hear the Nov. estimate may be optomistic at best. It was hit hard, both by storm surge and winds. Pretty bad shape, it would take an extraordinary effort to get it back in shape that quickly. We do have a lot of extra strong arms and kind hearts from all over the country, people who have come to help out with clean-up and rebuilding as well as humanitarian efforts. We're greatful for the help and things have gone amazingly well in getting power and other essentials back online.
I'm hopeful everything will go as well as the early stages have gone. If so Nov. may be possible. I'd keep an eye on the releases from Carnival for updates and not assume anything, even with projections.
October 1st is one week away. Does anyone really believe Galveston will be ready to do cruises by then?
I just read that the Galveston port officials are claiming they'll be ready by October 1 and have asked that the cruise ships return. That simply sounds too hopeful to me. Another thing is the port may say they are ready but that doesn't mean Carnival has to believe it. The logistics of moving passengers back and forth is an issue, among other things. If I were Carnival I'd wait a little while to make sure.
