They don't know what the heck they are talking about most times. I've been re-routed a few times on cruises. Those have turned out to be the best cruises. I doubt the people that parked their cars at the Galveston port a few years ago feel the same though. I hope it is smooth sailing for all of us.
I was on Carnival Glory in November during IDA and even though we weren't directly in the Hurricane we did excpeience some rough water and it prevented a couple of our performers from getting to the ship for their show nights. Also, made walking about on the ship a bit challenging. But, I must say the staff did an excellent job filling in for the MIA performers. Also, during the morning talk show the cruise director did, they had a Trivia question on what was the name of the hurricane causing all the comotion and I called in with the answer "We can give all the "GLORY" to Hurricane Ida" A little play on words there that didn't get past the cruise director and won a bottle of champaigne that I had the pleasure of sharing with my table mates the last night of the cruise!!
