Carnival Cruise Ships Delayed Due to Galveston Fog
(Update: 1:10 p.m. EST, Galveston's port has reopened and Carnival Magic has arrived. The ship is expected to depart later this afternoon. No itinerary changes have been made.)

(12:40 p.m. EST) -- Dense fog in the port of Galveston has caused delays for two Carnival cruise ships this weekend.

Carnival Triumph's departure from the Texas port was delayed by several hours on Saturday, however the ship is still sailing its five-night Western Caribbean cruise as scheduled and no itinerary changes were necessary.

Because the fog has not yet lifted, the port is now closed and will remain so until conditions improve. Carnival has informed us that Carnival Magic's arrival will be delayed until the port is reopened.

A similar situation occurred around this time last year, which resulted in shortened sailings for three cruise ships.
