I was told by Carnival that Gulfport is now the permanent port for Conquest.... Anyone else heard this? we are sailing June 29.... was told that unless Entergy fixed the power lines, we would probably sail out of Guflport.......
From what CCL says, the ship will stay here through mid-June, and not sure how long after that it will remain here in Gulfport. BUT if they decided to do that, I would assume that CCL will bring in a slightly smaller ship, and return to cruises to NOLA, THAT ship was not designed for Gulfport, but it was for NOLA.
VERY nice ship, I just returned yesterday from the cruise!
I am a travel agent and we received notice yesterday that Gulfport will be the home port of the Conquest until August, after that we don't know. As for Carnival bringing another ship in to the port of New Orleans, I wouldn't look for it. New Orleans had a contractural agreement with Carnival Cruise Lines for the Conquest and the Conquest only. The only other ship that I know that will be coming into port is the NCL dream.
