Wow, how sad! Is Galveston prone to fog? Has that ever happened in any other ports? If so, which ones?

When dealing with anything pertaining to being at sea, of course we have to keep in mind that adverse weather conditions do occur and they can't be predicted or controlled. That's a chance we ALL take but of course, the odds of this happening are pretty remote.

I'm sure that delays in debarking or the inability to dock somewhere due to weather conditions only affects, what, about 3% of all cruises at the most?

After all, fog and other weather conditions are more likely to affect flights out than ships being able to sail.

Still, what a let down!

December seems to be the worst month for fog in Galveston. It effected ships last year too.

Just got home from my Inspiration cruise. The ship came in around 4:30 on Monday. We got on board around 7:00 pm. Got back today, we docked around 11:00 p.m. due to high winds. I'll write a review in a day or so when I stop swaying like I'm still on the ship!
