Carnival Dream question - what’s up with the barge?

Recommended Posts

I’ve noticed a barge that often pulls along side the Carnival Dream when it is docked in New Orleans. Does anyone know it’s purpose? I’ve never seen one at any other ports.

 Either the fuel barge or the poop barge.

Fuel barge.  I see them often in various embarkation ports.

Thanks. Everyone’s input will make me sound like I know what I’m talking about when my wife asks. We leave on the Dream in two weeks.

If it has a red flag , it is bunkering  fuel .

Quite frequently on US barges, that red "Bravo" flag is a metal "flag".

Red flag at night, cruiser’s delight.

Bad joke I dread went over your head.

 

Many things go over my head.

 

Seemed like a parody on something my grandmother used to say.   Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky in morning, sailors take warning.

 

But definitely off topic.
