Default Mississippi River

Has anyone heard that the Mississippi river is still closed and cruise ships cannot not go up or down?

There was a boat collision Saturday morning at the entrance of the Mississippi from the Gulf of Mexico. Yesterday there were still 5 crew members missing. But today 3 were found and the search was called off for the other 2. They are now working on clearing the channel but say it will probably be at least Wednesday before they get done. The Conquest was sent to Gulf Port Mississippi to unload Sunday and to pick up its new passengers that were bussed over from New Orleans. But it looks like even then they did not leave until today for some reason. Sounds like they fared better that the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas though. They were in New Orleans and can't get down the river to go on their cruise.
