  1. Why do you refuse to put a ship in Mobile, Alabama. They have a nice port and the ships were always full. If you ever had any problems with a ship you tolled them to Mobile.

    • Carnival said years ago they would not go back to Mobile unless they would charge less for services (fuel, and terminal fees). New Orleans gives them a much better offer and Mobile just ins’t compromising. Carnival acknowledged the ships were full, but the fuel prices were almost 30% more in Mobile.

  2. We enjoyed our trip last week from Miami to the Eastern Caribbean on the Carnival Ship Glory. The older ships are decorated so much nicer than the newer ships. Crew was great!, Weather was great! Ports were great. The Shopping guide Peter was very good as well. Only thing I wanted to say is that the intranet needs to be improved. All of the employees on the ship said don’t waste your money and told us were to go onshore for fast wi fi. I have read that Carnival is going to upgrade the intranet for the entire fleet. The sooner the better. Thanks Carnival for the nice vacation.

  3. I wish you would put some other ship in New Orleans in 2016 besides the Triumph. IT has been in New Orleans why don’t you put one that has never been there.for the 4 & 5 day sails.We live 6 hrs from new Orleans its close for us to drive been on the Elation I bet 10 times…… also when the Triumph was in Mobil Al. I went on it and when it was in New Orleans before I went on it 3 R 4 times. Wish they would start sailing out of Mobil again. ….We need some other ship in New Orleans a newer ship NOT THE TRIUMPH….

  4. My husband and I take a cruise once a year, we take turns between Carnival and another cruise line. We would probably sail more on Carnival if a boat was in New York or Boston in the winter. Just saying, I know we are not the only ones who wish this. We dont want to spend the extra expense to fly down to Florida to take a cruise then to fly back. Just wondering if you ever will bring a boat back to New England in the winter.

    Thanks for your attention.
