Default Thoughts on Sensation replacing Holiday

Any thoughts if the Sensation should replace the Holiday in Mobile. Is this a good move? I would think the Fantasy would go first.

The Sensation has been kind of "hanging out" since it was used for hurricaine relief purposes in New Orleans. I thought the Sensation would go back to New Orleans,but after drydock refitting, the Carnival powers switched the Sensation and Fantasy. They're the same class ships and are the workhorses for Carnival, (i.e. making them the most money). This class will be around for a long time.

We've cruised the Conquest, Holiday, and Fantasy, and we tend to like the Fantasy Class ships the best.

The Sensation and Fantasy were switched due to the fact that Sensation developed propulsion problems and was constantly late in ports when they were sailing from New Orleans.
So Sensation was moved to the shorter, 3 and 4 day Bahamas runs from Port Canaveral.

I would have to be skeptical of the supposed move to Mobile next year, for this exact same reason. (unless they are planning to finally fix the propulsion problem during a drydock, between now and then)

Personally my Wife and I love the Sensation and wouldn't mind if they left her in Port Canaveral indefinitely.

As well as these ships are kept up, there are no qualms about getting on any of them.

Why replace the Holiday? Why not simply add another ship?
