Carnival Cruise Lines will resume service from the Port of Galveston, TX beginning November 1 following a temporary halt in cruise operations due to Hurricane Ike in September.
Carnival Ecstasy will resume year-round four- and five-day cruises with a five-day voyage departing November 1 and Carnival Conquest will begin year-round seven-day service beginning November 2. Until then, ships will continue to operate from the Port of Houston’s Bayport Cruise Terminal.
“We are extremely pleased to be resuming service from the Port of Galveston and extend our congratulations and appreciation to the port and the Galveston community as a whole for enabling us to return so quickly,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival’s president and CEO.
“We would also like to express our gratitude to the Port of Houston for their tremendous efforts in accommodating our ships and being such exceptional partners.Their support enabled these ships to remain Texas based while Galveston worked through its recovery process.”
