Carnival Remains Committed With Cruises from Mobile

Carnival Cruise Line is remaining committed with cruises out of Mobile, Alabama thanks to a new deal. This means the cruise line will continue to offer cruises from the port for three more years through November 2022. A press conference was held aboard the Carnival Fantasy cruise ship which is currently based out of the Alabama Cruise Terminal.

Terry Thornton, Carnival’s senior vice president of nautical and port operations, said:

“Carnival Fantasy remains a popular cruise vacation option for our guests, attracting vacationers from all over the southeast who appreciate Mobile’s convenience and centralized location. We’re delighted to work with Mobile Mayor Stimpson and city and terminal officials to allow our guests to continue to enjoy this attractive and affordable cruise program.”

This is great news for the local economy as Mobile mayor Sandy Stimpson stated the cruise line helped generate more than 25,000 hotel rooms nights in the city last year which in turn supports thousands of jobs.

With a new deal now inked, the Carnival Fantasy can continue offering four-day and five-day cruises to Mexico out of the Alabama Cruise Terminal, Mobile. The Fantasy-class ship departs on Thursdays on her four-day voyage which includes a call to the popular Cozumel, Mexico.

There are also five-day sailings that depart on Mondays and Saturdays and also include a call to Cozumel. The extra option for the slightly longer cruises is a call at Costa Maya or Progreso depending on which departure.

Carnival Cruise Line has also announced that the ship will offer two longer Carnival Journeys voyages from Mobile. There will be a 10-day cruise departing which includes a partial transition of the Panama Canal departing on September 14, 2020, and then and alternative 10-day Caribbean itinerary departing on September 13, 2021.
