If you were looking forward to seeing friends or family from this ship, you'll have to wait a couple of more days:

A five-day voyage on a cruise ship that was scheduled to dock in Galveston on Monday has been extended two days because of Hurricane Gustav, Carnival Cruise Lines announced Sunday.

The Carnival Ecstasy, which visited Progreso in the Mexican state of Yucatan, will "remain at sea at a safe distance away from the storm" and will return to Galveston on Wednesday, the cruise line said in a written statement.
