Carnival Paradise was granted a docking time of 9:30 p.m. Thursday evening in Tampa following a delay due to heavy fog, Carnival Cruise Line said in its latest statement. Due to the late hour of the ship's arrival, the disembarkation process for guests currently on board is scheduled to be completed Friday morning. 

Thursday's scheduled four-day cruise to Cozumel has now been modified to a three-day Cruise to Nowhere embarking Friday. Guests who were scheduled to depart on today’s voyage have been notified of the current situation and have been asked to arrive for embarkation between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. tomorrow. Those who wish to sail on the modified itinerary will receive a 50 percent refund of their cruise and a 50 percent discount on a future Carnival cruise.

Carnival Paradise was scheduled to return Thursday from a five-day cruise to Grand Cayman and Cozumel that departed on Saturday, January 23, from Tampa where it is based year-round. The ship's docking was delayed when heavy fog closed the Port of Tampa to traffic.
