Dave, that's where I was... trying to figure out which ship they plan on replacing her with. I have never been to Mobile, how big are the port facilities? I imagine that if they could handle the Holiday, they should be able to at least handle a Fantasy class ship... but which one? And, if the Holiday is going out, then a new ship must be coming in or they will need to cancel some itinerary and move a ship into Mobile. I know the Splendour is coming online in next summer but it is doing Europe cruises until at least October of 08. Maybe they plan on a shuffle of ships for the of season when the Freedom and the Splendour will be in the states? I sure hope CCL is not planning on abandoning Mobile...
And one more thought.. if they have sold the Holiday, can Celebration be far behind? Maybe they sold the Celebration too?
