Mobile is a fabulous port city. One thing I noticed when sailing out of there a couple of summers ago was that just about all of the passengers lived within an 8-hour or so drive from the terminal. There was still a fabulous cross-section of fellow passengers, yet I do think that Mobile needs to do something to promote itself as a destination to build interest from cruisers who live further away. This might also enable them to offer cruises that also call on another Gulf Coast port, those that we in other parts would not visit otherwise. (To comply with the Passenger Services Act, a stop in Cozumel along with a requirement that all passengers embark and disembark in Mobile should do it.)
Happy cruising!
