How many gulf coast departures going to the same western ports does Carnival need? Seems Mobile is overkill.Compared to all of the ships on the east coast that do Nassau/Freeport, there are not that many that do the Western Carribean on a five day cruise. Currently Carnival just has Tampa, New Orleans and Galveston.
Would like to see a Carnival Ship back in Mobile! We sailed out of their several times stayed in Buloxi, MS the night before the drive to the port was very easy from there. Plus we got to get in some Casino time early! I just hope they get the parking worked out as the lot wasn't large enough for a Fantasy Class ship and all the people who drive to the port. But that would be the only down side as maybe the Port of Calica would be on the schedule and it's hard to beat a beach day in Playa Del Carmen!I agree that Calica is a port they should return to also, and I said so on the survey! We really enjoyed Xcaret both times we went there.
i understand NO has more tourist attractions, etc than mobile but i just dont think i'd like all the time on the mississippi river out of NO. i've been all over southern louisiana in the summer several times and i know that you can tell when the mosquitos are around when they turn their landing lights on. it has to be "buggy" in the mississippi.Depending on the time of year, cruising down the river can be very rewarding. In the winter months it gets dark pretty quick so you miss most of it, so you cannot even tell you are in a river. In the summer, you get to see the river longer, which I enjoy. As for it being "buggy", I have never expieranced that. I believe the ship is traveling too fast for it to be a problem.
