Carnival Cruise Line has issued a traffic and weather alert for those booked on Carnival Valor’s October 1 sailing from the Port of Galveston in Texas. The popular homeport is currently being hit by flooding and delaying cruise ship passengers.

Carnival Issues Weather Alert

The alert which has gone out is for cruise ship passenger traveling for their October 1st cruise on Carnival Valor. So far the ship is still departing as scheduled but this could change.

The Fleet Operations Center in Miami has been monitoring the developments of bad weather which has been hitting Galveston over the last few days. The area has been hit with major flooding due to 2-3 inches of rainfall.

Major routes and access points have been impacted near the port. This may cause delays for many cruise passengers trying to arrive for embarkation.

In the alert, Carnival mentioned “We are currently planning to operate our cruise as scheduled but we will continue to keep an eye on local conditions and provide you with an update if anything changes. In the meantime, please opt-in for text alerts by texting CCL3 to CRUISE (278473). We are looking forward to welcoming you aboard for a FUN and memorable cruise vacation.”
