Default Cruise Ship Cuts Power from NOLA?

Power Lines Divide Entergy, Cruise Ship Company
Giant 'Conquest' Forced Into Narrow Corridor Over Cost

NEW ORLEANS -- In what promises to be a huge economic boost for the city, New Orleans is getting ready to greet one of the largest cruise ships in the world -- but there is just one problem: power lines.

For the Carnival cruise ship "Conquest" to enter the Port of New Orleans, Entergy must raise a set of sagging power lines hanging over the river at the Chalmette ferry. The lines cross 300-foot towers on either side, but sag to 176 feet in the middle of the river.

The Conquest stands 208 feet out of the water.
For the full story go to New Orleans Channel

Carnival makes a point - the port of New Orleans lobbied to have them come there and wanted a bigger ship and ......oops!!!! The electric company has a little bit of a problem....and I do agree that the Army Corps of Engineers decree be upheld. Carnival should not have to pay for the correction to this problem. jmho
