Default fantasy moving to mobile this wekend!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! finaly!!!!!!!!!

Due to the closure of the Mississippi River, the current voyage of the 2,056-passenger Carnival Fantasy will end in Mobile, Ala., on Saturday, July 26, instead of its regular homeport of New Orleans. Disembarking guests will be provided complimentary motorcoach transportation back to the Port of New Orleans or the New Orleans airport.

Carnival Fantasy�s next voyage, set to depart on Saturday, July 26, will also depart from Mobile. Carnival will provide complimentary motorcoach transportation from New Orleans� Erato Street cruise terminal to Mobile.

All guests for the next voyage are instructed to proceed to the Port of New Orleans to board a motorcoach to Mobile, because at the end of the cruise, the Fantasy is expected to return to New Orleans. The only exception would be individuals who are being dropped off and not leaving a car and prefer to proceed on their own to Mobile.

Both the voyage ending Saturday and the new one departing Saturday are five-day cruises to Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico.

Well, not permanently yet. Speculation expects the Holiday to magically disappear soon this year and the Fantasy be its replacement.

Sounds like a bloody mess to me. I know i'd be pissed off if that were the case with my cruise. Its bad enough having to get off the ship at 7:00am, but to then have to sit on a bus, potentially with people i might not like, would SUCK. However, i could see a bright side to it if it had been a really good cruise....

If anyone was wondering why the Mississippi is closed, I just looked it up:

"Nearly 420,000 gallons of number 6 fuel oil spilled when American Commercial Lines barge DM932 collided at approximately 1:30 a.m. Wednesday."

ok one i saw the ship today!! =) i was sooo happy. haha. anyways as far as the holiday magically disappearing. thats highly doubtful by the way the mayor has been talking about the ships. the fantasy is supposedly going to drydock in mobile to have its refurb. i also had the same thing happen to me when i sailed on the conquest in 04. there was a wreck in the mississippi river and the ship was docked in gulf port. being that i live in mobile we drove to new orleans and i was expecting to see my ship docked. well it wasnt there. we were in the terminal from 9am that morning to 10 pm that night then i was shuttled to gulf port. we did not set sail until the next day around 3pm when everyone was finally shuttled and on the ship ready to go. we missed jamaica completely on this cruise. we arrived at grand cayman and turned around and left because the seas were too rough to tender. we arrived in cozumel on the scheduled day and then we came home. that was the worst cruise i have ever taken but it was still ok i had fun. so i seriously know how these ppl feel because i passed the conquest going to new orleans since it was docked in gulf port. im totally ready for a bigger ship to come to mobile though. that would be so great =) ok im done now..haha

haha it ok =) we received a 50% discount on our next cruise. we had to take it within a year. so we just rebooked the conquest =) we actually got to go to all the ports that time. and they said it would take a few weeks to get all of that oil out for traffic to be able to return back into the port. so im thinking the fantasy will be back, but on this site the story on it states the fantasy will return back to new orleans. so we shall see. but ill def keep yall posted on whats said here =)

I wrote on facebook a girl who I know from school who actually lives in New Orleans. She said that the oil barge hit a bunker and that caused all the oil to spill. She says she doesn't live near that area, but people who do can only drink bottled water. Sounds like a big mess for the Big Easy.
