It would not have changed the outcome, but Carnival would have had the opportunity to handle it properly.
What that tells me is Carnival was working behind the backs of the Mobile officials for quite a while, since the Port Canaveral CEO knew about it while Mobile was kept in the dark. If anything, that makes this even more unseemly.
