They were waiting on a late flight coming in to New Orleans(obviously booked through Carnival). We were at the Riverwalk and heard the announcement on the ship's intercom.

Does anyone know what's going on with the ship since we're in an international crisis? Will they continue their voyage as normal or will they come back? Will they still stop at the ports? I just got back from the Inspiration on 9/9, I couldn't have beared being out at sea while all of this was going on in the States.

Its my understanding that cruise lines dont cancel cruises unless it directly effect the voyage. In this case, I dont think it does. But I havent heard of anything on the news as far as cruise travel (except mabie in NYC and that area).

Just a follow-up...the New Orleans Times Picayune reported yesterday that the ship is returning at its normal scheduled time Sunday.

However, today there is a Tropical Depresssion out in the Gulf of Mexico.

Yes, I was on the Inspiration then. They said they were waiting for a couple who was running late due to airline delays. We finally left at 8pm, however we still arrived in Jamaica at the expected time. No Problem Mon!
