Unfortunately, several issues remain for our operation on the Mississippi River and the cruises scheduled to depart from New Orleans. As a result, we will now operate the Carnival Fantasy from Mobile, Alabama for all cruises through, and including the September 1, 2008 departure. The following information will explain our operational plans:
Carnival Fantasy August 14, August 18, August 23 and September 1 Departures
We will operate all of these cruises roundtrip from Mobile. If guests were driving to New Orleans, we request they proceed to the cruise terminal in Mobile. Guests may also purchase transfers between New Orleans and Mobile.
Due to the airlift constraints into Mobile, guests that purchased air transportation from Carnival or independent air transportation should fly into New Orleans as scheduled. Carnival will provide roundtrip motorcoach transportation between the New Orleans airport and Mobile on the day of arrival and departure only.
We sincerely apologize to all of our guests that are impacted by this situation. The entire Carnival team will do everything possible to minimize this inconvenience.
