Ike Weakens Into Tropical Storm
(7:29 p.m. EDT) -- Ike, the hurricane that ravaged coastal Texas and Louisiana early Saturday, has weakened into a tropical storm. The National Hurricane Center reported that at 5 p.m. EDT, maximum sustained winds were only 45 miles per hour. The storm is traveling northeast across Texas and will cross into Arkansas later tonight.

As the path of the storm will no longer affect any cruise ports, this will be our last update on the storm's path. However, we will keep you posted about the state of the Texas cruise ports and the Carnival cruises whose itineraries are dependent upon the reopening of the Galveston port.
