Must be an old brochure. Just did a "Find a Cruise" on Carnival's website for April '08, and it's still out of Miami. We get the NO newspaper daily, and there's been nothing in there, or on the local media about another ship. This is usually big news for the city, but, sad to say, haven't heard of anything yet.
Sorry, just a "mis-print". Although come April 2008, sounds like the Triumph will need to go somewhere to make room for other ships forecasted for that "slot" in Miami.

What is being said is not exactly true. Carnival is bring Triumph back to New Orleans approximately 4/2008. The port is fine and dandy. Actually new and very expensive for parking and such. My understanding is that the port has leved extremely high taxes on the cruise ships. I went on a 7day NCL out of New Orleans in Oct 2006 and the parking was 118.00
WE are just about rebuilt except for 9th ward
I JUST got off the phone with Carnival - since I just booked on the Fantasy in January I wanted to make sure. There will be no other carnival ships out of New Orleans this year OR next year according to the guy I talked to. If so...I would wait and book on the triumph.
