We cruised out of Mobile last year and fell in love with the city, so it is a real shame to read this. And, we're not even a reasonable driving distance -- we had to fly 6 hours total on two planes to get there. Our pre-cruise stay was so enjoyable that knowing that we had a post-cruise stay, as well, made getting off the ship at the end of the cruise a little easier. I was hoping to make another cruise out of Mobile at some point. Perhaps now, I'll just visit Mobile and feed the local economy that way.
