Carnival Conquest To Operate from Galveston Indefinitely
As a result of hurricane damage sustained in New Orleans, Carnival Cruise Lines will indefinitely relocate its New Orleans-based ship, the Carnival Conquest, to Galveston, Texas.
The ship, which operated seven-day cruises from New Orleans, will now sail every Sunday on seven-day voyages from Galveston instead. Ports of call will remain the same -- Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
The Carnival Conquest's new Galveston program will begin Sept. 11, 2005 (the ship is currently in drydock for previously scheduled routine maintenance).
Carnival Conquest guests who are fully paid and/or deposited as of Sept. 1, 2005, will receive a $50 per person credit to their shipboard account.
For guests who have purchased air transportation from Carnival, the company will assist in changing flights to arrive and depart from Houston.
Guests who opt to cancel will receive a full refund.
