    Update on the Texas nurse on the Carnival Magic cruise per Carnival social media updates. First, the nurse is showing no signs of Ebola. Good News. Second, though, Mexico refused the ship docking privileges in Cozumel, so the ship is returning to its home port of Galveston. Carnival is giving on-board credit to the passengers and a discount on a future cruise for their inconvenience, even though it is not Carnival's fault. So Carnival is doing its best to make things good for the passengers.
