As Isaac takes aim at the U.S. Gulf Coast, there has been no evacuation ordered for the city of New Orleans, but the Port of New Orleans closed yesterday afternoon.
At this time the Port’s cruise operations have not been affected by the storm. Last weekend Carnival Conquest departed Sunday as scheduled and is due back on Sunday, Sept. 2nd. Carnival Elation is scheduled to arrive Thursday at the Erato Street Cruise Terminal.
More information will be available immediately after the storm passes when the Coast Guard evaluates all waterways to determine when the river will be reopened for safe transit.
