Passengers who chose not to leave Sunday could stay on ships until Monday morning
New Orleans, LA — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; two Carnival Cruise Line ships delayed by former Tropical Storm Karen were due in New Orleans within a half-hour of each other Sunday, a day earlier than previously expected.
The storm, which dissipated Sunday, delayed arrival by a day for the Carnival Elation and less than half a day for the Carnival Conquest, which had to remain in the Gulf of Mexico until the Coast Guard reopened the mouth of the Mississippi about 12:15 a.m. Sunday.
