Tampa, FL -- The United States Coast Guard had to delay the Jewel of the Sea early this morning because of the heavy fog that settled in over Tampa Bay last night.

The original port arrival time was 7:00 a.m. but has now been pushed back to around 8:45 a.m.

This delay could cause problems for passengers who may have had flights scheduled early this morning. The Coast Guard is current evaluating departures for cruise ships that may also be delayed on a minute by minute basis.
