Waiting for Carnival...

Cruise Ship Speculation Continues ( - link)

..."Cruise fanatics, businesses and city leaders have been waiting on more details ever since Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson said on Sept. 3 that a cruise ship is returning to the vacated terminal for the first time in four years.
Celebrations have been on hold while the administration's legal team works to finalize an agreement with Miami-based Carnival Cruise Line. The agreement is expected to be finalized this week, according to Stimpson spokesman George Talbot. 
The City Council, which is expecting the final agreement before the end of the month, wants to take some more immediate action. On Tuesday's agenda is an item to rename the cruise terminal on Mobile's waterfront."...

Having taken a few of the Mobile cruises, which were a lot of fun, I am really glad the city and Carnival have gotten this deal worked back out.  The loss of the cruise ship was a big blow to Mobile tourism and with the recent sudden cancellation of Bayfest it is more important than ever for Mobile to have a replacement tourist activity.
