2 Storm-Delayed Cruise Ships Head to New Orleans

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS - Carnival Cruise Lines says two cruise ships delayed by the storm system Karen should get to New Orleans within 30 minutes 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.

The company says the Conquest is expected to reach New Orleans at 1:30 p.m., and the Elation at 2 p.m.

Carnival says passengers may leave Sunday or stay on the ships until Monday morning.

The company says both ships will leave Monday on shortened cruises. The Elation's will be cut from five to three days, and the Conquest's from seven to six. Carnival says those passengers will get partial refunds.
