Wind Delays Carnival Ecstasy
Carnival Ecstasy, which sails Western Caribbean itineraries from Galveston, completed this week's four-night cruise a bit late. The ship was delayed during a call at Mexico's Progreso because of intense winds. As a result, Carnival Ecstasy made it into Galveston last night about five hours late.

As a result, the following cruise -- slated to leave at 4 p.m. -- was late as well. The ship, according to a Carnival spokesman, departed from the Port of Galveston at 10 p.m.

While those folks on the slightly shortened four-night voyage all got a $100 shipboard credit to make up for the delay (incidentally, Carnival is not required to give compensation for weather-related delays) the folks on the ever-so-longer voyage simply got ... a few extra hours of shipboard time.
