There is a rumor on the "dark side" that Houston did not work out after all (because of lack of infrastructure)???

And that both ships will be going out of New Orleans...at least for awhile.

The person who posted it is a regular...but I don't know them well enough to take it beyond Rumor Status.

That must be news to the people at the port of Houston. This is what their website is showing.

Since the Galveston port will soon be seeing the Voyager Of The Seas, I will move this thread to General Cruise Chat.

But I also have some promising news from my agent:

"We have some good news from the Port of Galveston. As of yesterday, we have been told that the port will be ready to accept the Voyager as scheduled in December. The terminal did sustain 3 feet of water damage, but the building has been deemed structurally sound. Over the next two weeks they will be replacing carpet and counters that have water damage. The electricians are working today, and there is hope that they will have power next week. (The port is on the same transformer as the hospital). The waterway is clear of all obstacles and a Navy ship will be coming in this weekend to provide lodging and support to the city."

Thanks for the update Dave! According to Carnival they are going to eventually move the Conquest and Ecstasy back to Galveston when the port is available. So apparently they haven't signed a long term deal with Houston.

Any news on the businesses in Galveston? We had to book our hotel in Texas City but were hoping for dinner on the island. Would like to support any rebuild efforts. Will there be any difficulty getting to the port to board the ship? The Port of Galveston website does not indicate any problems... but its good to get 1st hand info. (we are not leaving till Dec. 14th but I am enjoying the chats & learning a lot from this forum)
