Default Oil Spill

We are scheduled to go on the Elation out of Mobile June 5th. I am worried that the oil spill will affect us. Any ideas whether it will or not? There is a travel advisory for the sailing leaving Monday from Mobile but that is all so far..........

I doubt it will effect you at all. Nothing you can do about it so don't worry.

Carnival has a note on their website saying they are watching the situation for their May 3rd cruise out of Mobile....we are booked on the May 8th (the final Fantasy sailing before heading to Charleston)....

nothing we can do except wait and see....

A very sad situation. All the damage to the wildlife is horrific. Hope they start making some progress in the clean up.

If they don't get a handle on this situation very soon, many cruises will be effected, and the loss of wildlife is too big to even think about.
