I think Ecstasy is going away, too. We get Triumph and Magic.
Mariner is set to arrive but I am not sure VoS is returning.
The port of Galveston is in the middle of a really nice expansion project to get ready for Magic.
There is the unknown about Carnival Breeze. Maybe it will fill the void for Alaska?
