Fog Alert: Galveston 02/05/2013

Once again, fog prevents Magic from being on time.

Hope we don't have to worry about fog in May.

It's really dense this morning... driving into work was fun.

The fog has gotten us before on cruises -- I'm just hoping it gets it all out of its system now and we have clear skies next Friday!!!

DCL: Travel Advisory...Galveston Weather Delay

FYI: http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/wh...ecial-message/

Travel Advisory...Galveston Weather Delay

As of 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on February 5, 2013

The port area in Galveston, Texas, is currently experiencing heavy fog and the channel between the terminal and the Gulf of Mexico has been closed to all inbound and outbound vessel traffic.

At this time, the Disney Magic® is offshore waiting for the fog to clear and for the port to reopen. Once the port reopens, the onboard Guests will need to complete the debarkation process before boarding can begin for today's sailing.

As a result of this unexpected weather delay, we are asking guests to postpone their arrival to the terminal building by at least one (1) hour after your selected port arrival time. Due to the nature of any weather condition, it is possible that further delays may occur. We will continue to monitor the fog conditions closely and will be sending updates as needed.

For additional details and the most up-to-date information on this delay, Guests are invited to call 1-866-325-4243.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this unexpected weather delay and look forward to welcoming you onboard later today.

Magic delayed again

According to the travel advisory on the DCL website this morning the Magic was fogged out of port again last night. Expected disembark is not until afternoon. Arriving passengers asked to delay by two hours after PAT.

Saw that on Facebook earlier. When we were on our way to Port Canaveral for our cruise in Jan., Galveston was fogged out. I hope we don't encounter this in May.

Yeah, I saw it a couple of hours ago and was pretty surprised it hadn't been posted here yet.

Saw it on the cruise line web site. I do believe I would not cruise out of Galveston at this time of the year, assuming this is the foggy season!

Actually, there are 2 other threads here from this morning, though last I read one had indicated a 1-hour delay not the 2-hours you've mentioned:

Oops, I'm sorry! I scrolled through the DISboards app way back to posts from last night and they didn't show up.

At 10:15 CT, DCL updated their posting on disneycruise.com to indicate at least a two hour delay:

Hopefully she isn't delayed too much in leaving later, because the fog is supposed to creep back in by mid-evening and struggle to life back out by late morning tomorrow. Fingers crossed that they're able to turn the ship over quickly, get everyone on, and get out!
