They updated the Info today. It is now saying they have advised all guests with departures through November 1st. they will be operating out of Houston. However it did state that they would return to Galveston as soon as the terminal is available and will advise all guests.

Here is a link.

Has anyone heard a report on how the Houston port is doing? Embarkation and debarkation going smoothly? Parking sufficient? Convenient to airports? Just curious .

Just got back today from the Houston port.
Embarkation was a little slow thanks to Customs and debarkation was the fastest of any cruise we have had. They had 6 lines at at the Custom check out. There is plenty of parking. We found it to be a nice place to cruise out of. With only a 2 1/2 hr drive for us,we hope they get some other cruise lines after Carnival goes back to Galveston. It also is easy to get to from Houston.
Hope this helps
