Sailing July 6, on the Conquest. We live on the MS Gulf Coast and went to watch the ship sail away yesterday. It got a late start but she is a beauty, and a huge one!!! I also talked to Carnival about the port, and was told several times, that it will leave and return to gulfport. They said it would drop off the passengers and then make it's way to New Orleans. Don't kow how much is true...but?!?
