Default Parking/Embarkation - Mobile

My husband and I booked a last minute cruise out of Mobile on Holiday. What are the charges for parking? Also how long did embarkation take? Carnival says we can begin boarding at 11:30 am, but since DH is on crutches from knee surgery, I'm not sure he can stand through long lines. (Don't you think a cruise is a great way to recover from anything??) The worst cruise has to be better than a day at work!

I read where parking is $7.00 per day. Cannot help on other since my 1st cruise is coming up. When will you be crusin. We go 10-21-04 on Holiday out of Mobile (can hardly wait). I think this will be a great recovery for hubby. Hope you have a great cruise & recovery.

Great way to recover, when you get at the terminal ask for a wheel chair and they will try to speed up embarkation for you and will wheel him on the ship for you. We did this for my Mother and it was great. Happy Cruisin!

They had a spot on the local morning news and it sounded like tomorrow would be the first cruise out of Mobile. The Holida was to pull in at 9:00 this morning. Don't know why they aren't leaving the same day.

sls,
Saw that also. My mom will be sailing 10-25-04 with a group & she said that their TA was invited to come on board today with other TA's to check the ship out. She going to let me know what her TA has to say since we are leaving before her on 10-21 & she will be getting on when we are getting off. Very excited. Almost time to sail.

Please post what the TA has to say. I have seen several negative reviews of the Holiday. Ship has been in service for a long time. Supposedly not kept up well. I hope that that is not the case.

PS - I have seen lots of compliments on the staff and service, so maybe that will make up for any deficiencies on the quality of the ship.

Dixie Lee,
I will post what I find out on Monday. I am very anxious to get this report also. I agree with what venice said in RE: Holiday ouft of Mobile Oct 30, that this is new port & hopefully staff will be eager to serve well. I feel like it will get a lot of publicity.

They are having the grand opening today. WIth alot of important people. That's why it isn't sailing today. Terminal looks great, with 3 level covered parking.

Pat 2,
Glad to hear that. I believe this will become a very busy port (I hope).

Just wanted everyone know what my mom's TA had to say. She was very impressed & said everything was very nice. She was looking forward to taking her group on 10-25-04 on the Hoiday. Said the port terminal was extremely nice. This gives all of us something to look forward to. I will let you know what I think after my cruise on 10-21-04 (can hardly wait).

Julie.. be sure to let all of us know about the Holiday. 11 more days and DH and I will be able to give everyone more feedback. Crossing my fingers that this will be a very successful venture for the Holiday, Mobile, and Carnival.

let Carnival customer service know about your DH condition in advance..my experience is that Carnival will "bend over backwards" to assist..one of the advantages of leaving out of a smaller port on a smaller ship..ps treat your DH to a massage, it will make his leg feel alot better
