Life goes on!
I agree with what everyone said about the Port of Mobile. It was very nice and easy to negotiate for parking, getting in and getting out.
I also agree that the city probably made back the money on the port. I'm sure if it is a viable place to dock, other lines, particularly NCL and RCCL will take advantage of this.
Carnival is not the be-all and end-all of the cruise industry but they are the biggest for a reason and I'm sure this was a business decision. They have brought an awful lot of revenue to Mobile which the city should certainly be thankful for. They need to market it now for another cruise line.
And welcome to the couple from Evansville. I lived there for 12 years!! Worked for almost every TV and radio station there!!
