Back in January Cruise News Daily reported that Carnival Cruise Lines would be operating a limited number of 7-day cruises aboard Carnival Fantasy from Mobile in 2010. The cruise line reports they are now available to book.
Based on the success Holiday sailing from the Alabama port, the port has aggressively sought more ships and longer itineraries. Holiday has sailed from the port since cruise service began there in 2004. Carnival will be replacing Holiday with the larger Carnival Fantasy in November (2009).
Carnival Fantasy will continue to sail Holiday's popular 4- and 5-day cruises from Mobile. The 7-day itineraries just replace them on the selected dates.
The new 7-day sailings depart on May 8, May 15, July 3, July 10, October 23 and October 30, 2010, and call at Montego Bay (Jamaica), George Town (Grand Cayman) and Cozumel (Mexico).
