Carnival Ships Arrive in Texas

Both the Carnival Breeze and Carnival Vista sailed into the Port of Galveston on Sunday afternoon. 

Their arrival came one day before a Monday event that’ll focus on the importance of the return of cruising and the economic impact caused by the 14 month pause in operations.

There’s no word yet on when ships will be able to welcome passengers back, although recent meetings between the CDC and the cruise industry have had a far much more positive tone than any other conversation to date.
