Below is the latest weather advisory from Carnival.

July 1, 2010 4:30PM EST.

"We continue to closely monitor the effects of Tropical Storm Alex. The following ships are experiencing delays or deviations due to rough weather.

Due to adverse weather conditions, the Carnival Ecstasy will not be able to come into Galveston today. The cruise will now be changed to a 3 day cruise to nowhere and guests should arrive at the terminal at 2pm on Friday, July 2nd. Guests that sail on the new 3 day cruise will receive a 25% refund of their cruise fare along with a 25% discount on a future 3 to 5 day cruise departing prior to April 30, 2012 as well as a $25 per person on board credit as a reimbursement for the Cozumel government taxes and fees.

If your sailing is not mentioned in the update above it is operating as planned."

She sure has. I don't recall which was first, the sharp turn or the missing person. She also caught on fire 12 years ago.

....and I had a fog delay back in March, before and after.
I learned that it can be risky to book a short cruise during times when the weather is particularly unpredictable. I managed to have fun on my cruise to nowhere, but I want to wait a least a few years before I do it again.
