The U.S. Coast Guard has given clearance for most ships, including cruise ships, to reenter the Port of Galveston.

On its website, the agency said that the port is now open in daylight hours only to vessels with draft of less than 33 feet.

Cruise lines are making preparation to return their Galveston-based ships to the port. Carnival Cruise Line said that Carnival Freedom is expected to dock on Friday and debark guests from its previous cruise. Embarkation for the Sept. 2 voyage will take place on Saturday. Carnival Valor will also arrive in Galveston on Friday to disembark guests.

As previously reported, the Aug. 31 sailing of Carnival Valor has been canceled, making the Sept. 4 departure the first post-storm sailing.

Carnival Breeze is scheduled to arrive on Saturday morning to disembark guests from the previous cruise.  Embarkation for the Sept. 3 sailing will take place on Sunday.

Royal Caribbean said the Liberty of the Seas continues on its way back to Galveston from Miami and is on schedule to arrive Friday morning.
