Default Oil spill-Triumph departure delayed to 9:00 p.m.

Someone asked a few days ago so when I heard this, thought I should post. It seems that Triumph has to delay it's departure until 9:00 tonight, because it takes about 8 hours to reach the mouth of the Mississippi and they are not allowing ships to navigate the oil in the dark.

If that doesn't make them late to any ports I have no issue with it. If it is out of kilter, I likely won't be too thrilled when we sail in two weeks.

Unhappy

The oil spill is going to have a very negative impact on the cruise industry.

Uhh didn't the BP CEO tell European TV audiences that he felt the oil would only have, "..a very modest effect" on the ecosystem? I say, maybe he should take a swim through his "modest effect."
