We were on the very first cruise out of the new Mobile terminal. We felt the first cruise would have many delays and problems, but to our surprice everything went well. Although all the agents and security were new we had no problems. There was a small delay in boarding due to the 2nd ID check, but that was taken care of fast. We were still on board the ship before the time Carnival says you can board. The facility was nice and the employees were very helpful. We stayed the night before at the Admiral Raddison with the cruise and drive package and it was great. They took us to the terminal and picked us up within minutes. There is parking directly at the terminal, but we did not use it.
