Carnival Fantasy to begin cruise ship operations in Alabama

Carnival Fantasy to begin cruise ship operations in Alabama

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The Carnival Fantasy will begin voyages from the Alabama coast, marking the return of cruise ships to Mobile after a four-year absence, city officials announced Wednesday.

The Mobile City Council approved the deal between Miami-based Carnival Cruise Line and the city-owned cruise ship terminal on Wednesday.

The 2,056-passenger Carnival Fantasy will offer four- and five-day cruises to ports in Mexico, officials said. The agreement approved by the council is for about 13 months, meaning the cruises will run from early November 2016 to late November 2017.
