GALVESTON FLOODING STRANDS CARNIVAL CRUISE PASSENGERS
« on: September 03, 2018, 05:27:30 PM »
"Among the people affected by the flooding were passengers on the Carnival Cruise Line, many of whom took to Twitter to express their frustration with the situation. Daniel Betancourt posted a photo of two people walking through the flooded streets with their bags and wondered why, if all the streets are flooded, the company couldn't provide shuttles.

Another passenger explained that they were trying to get to the cruise ship but since all the streets were flooded, the Twitter user wondered if the ship’s departure time would be delayed until roads cleared."

Samantha Berezowsky, who docked in Galveston Monday morning, tweeted that she was kicked off the ship, as well as, kicked out of a parking lot during the torrential rain.

“They had to turn the ship around for another cruise and I guess that’s more important than sending 3,000 people into a flood zone who may or may not make it to the highway,” she added in a second tweet.

I wonder why they didn't chose another port for turn-a-round?
