Carnival Fantasy Delayed Due to Heavy Fog

The Fantasy-class cruise ship had a delayed arrival into the Port of Mobile, Alabama today. The reason is due to heavy fog in the area but through the afternoon conditions are set to improve.

Carnival Cruise Line issued an advisory for guests booked on the January 3 sailing from the port. The embarkation process has been delayed by 2 hours to allow guests to disembark the ship first as there is limited space at the terminal.

All guests including Diamond, Platinum, Faster to the Fun and Suites who arrive at the terminal earlier will be told to return at the altered time. The process usually begins at around 11:30 AM but will now be starting at 1:30 PM.

Fog is causing major problems for many cruise ships at the moment.

Dense fog has also been hovering around New Orleans which cruise lines are actively monitoring.
