Defer to a Different Port if You Can
Emerald Princess Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review SummaryShip is fine. Houston port can be problematic if fog. Our ship left several hours late for departure because it was not allowed to enter port\, and then our captain rushed us to port to avoid fog\, then we got stuck and had to anchor in the Gulf\, and was not able to get into port until late next day\, then\, we had rushed/terrible embarkation\, with multiple changes made to itinerary due to weather.
