Carnival made a business decision based on pricing they get for Mobile cruises. Fine. I'll make my business decision too, and this move means I'll be cruising much less with Carnival now. The 2 hours extra it takes to drive to NOLA makes a difference to me, plus the hassles of parking and so forth in NOLA. I see much more Celebrity and RCI in my future, since if I have to fly I'll prefer those lines to Carnival.
