Ship on a cruise to nowhere
The 'Carnival Dream' has been delayed arriving back at its homeport after spending most of Jan 16, 2020, anchored just off the Gulf coast near its homeport in Galveston, Texas due to heavy fog in the region. The ship was originally scheduled to arrive early in the morning but instead had arrived in the evening. As a result, those ending their 4-day Western Caribbean cruise which departed Galveston on Jan 11 have the option to remain on board overnight and disembark between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on Jan 17. Alternatively, guests can also disembark once the ship has arrived in port. The biggest impact comes to guests booked on the cruise which was scheduled to leave on Jan 17 at 3.30 p.m. Instead of enjoying a 4-day voyage to Cozumel they will now be spending all their time on the 'Carnival Dream' on a cruise to nowhere. The ship will operate a 3-day cruise but it still depends on the weather conditions. Guests who decide to go ahead with their vacation will receive a 50% refund and a 50% future cruise credit. They also have the option for a full refund.Upload News
