From the musical ships department:

Carnival announced this morning that Carnival Fascination will replace Celebration at Jacksonville beginning Sept 20, 2008.

As always happens with these announcements, it will only be the first of several as the ships are shifted around to fill the holes.

The questions this brings to mind is first, what will happen to Celebration? Will Carnival be using it to open a new market, or is it time for it to be leaving the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet?

Then what will fill the 3- and 4-day slot in Miami? Could this be the time Carnival supersizes that route? Of course that will then raise the question, what will fill that ship's place?
