Real bad news for those that drove their cars to Galveston for the September 7th sailing of the Carnival Conquest and the September 11 sailing of the Carnival Ecstasy.  According to the Galveston Daily News all the cars that were parked at the port are ruined. “Cars left in port parking lots by cruise ship passengers are most likely a total loss,” said city spokesperson Alicia Cahill.

According to the paper the cruise terminal was flooded with 2 to 3 feet of water, and the wall next to the water was torn down. As ExpertCruiser reported earlier cruise ships scheduled to return to port Sunday and Monday were diverted to New Orleans.
