TWB is Live! Hurricane Florence Hits US Carnival Royal Caribbean Norwegian Updates! Hurricane Florence is now hitting the coast of South Carolina. The storm is slowing it's forward motion down to a crawl and will likely dump huge amounts of rain for the next few days. Carnival has a ship called the Carnival Ecstacy due to land in Charleston SC on Sunday but the port is closed right now until Saturday night and may not be open by Sunday with the amount of flooding that is expected in the area. The Grandeur of the Seas is supposed to be in Baltimore on Sunday along with Carnival Pride, but they may not make it there either due to the fact that the ships are in the Port Canaveral area waiting for the hurricane to pass first.
