Due to continuing problems on the Mississippi River, Carnival Cruise Lines announced that the current voyage of its 2,056-passenger Carnival Fantasy will end in Mobile, AL, on Monday instead of the originally scheduled homeport of New Orleans. Passengers will be provided free motorcoach transportation back to the Port of New Orleans or the New Orleans airport.
Meanwhile, Carnival Fantasy’s next five-day cruise, set to depart on Monday, will depart from Mobile instead of New Orleans. Carnival will provide free motorcoach transportation to passengers from New Orleans’ Erato Street cruise terminal to Mobile.
Carnival is advising all guests for the next voyage to proceed to the Port of New Orleans to board a motorcoach to Mobile because, at the end of the cruise, the Fantasy is expected to return to New Orleans. The only exception would be individuals who are being dropped off and not leaving a car and prefer to proceed on their own to Mobile.
