Carnival Fantasy Plans Year of Mobile-Mexico Cruises
Cruise News – Sept. 23, 2015
Carnival Cruise Line and the City of Mobile, Alabama, have announced a year-long schedule of 4- and 5-day Mexico cruises aboard Carnival Fantasy starting in November 2016.
Before deploying to Alabama, the 2,056-passenger vessel will undergo a multi-million-dollar refurbishment, adding Fun Ship 2.0 attractions like Guy’s Burger Joint, a RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, and the BlueIguana Cantina Mexican-themed eatery.
The new schedule will include calls on Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Progreso.
“Carnival Fantasy’s four- and five-day cruises from Mobile provide consumers with an affordable way to visit stunning Mexican ports from a convenient homeport while offering our valued travel agent partners an exciting new short vacation option to market to their clients,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president.
Added Mayor Sandy Stimpson: “We are pleased and excited to welcome Carnival Cruise Line back to Mobile. This agreement has been a priority since the day we took office. It represents a win for our city, a win for Carnival and most of all a win for the thousands of consumers who can once again enjoy a great cruise out of one of America’s greatest cities. We are building something special in Mobile, and this renewed partnership is evidence of that momentum.”
The Mobile-based program kicks off November 9, 2016 and will run through November 27, 2017.
