However, the third ship, Holiday, is still docked in Mobile. As we previously reported, the ship won't be staying at that port, but moved to another port along the Gulf Coast. According to a James McIntyre, a spokesman for FEMA, a date has not yet been set for its departure from Mobile.
"We're looking for ports in Mississippi and Louisiana to move [Holiday] into," he tells us. He also tells us that Holiday has remained in Mobile thus far because the possible relocation ports needed to first be inspected for damage to infrastructure. Because Sensation and Ecstasy are already safely in New Orleans, it seems most likely that Holiday be sent to Gulfport; last week, a spokeswoman for FEMA confirmed that all three Carnival ships would eventually end up in New Orleans or Gulfport.
Once a port is identified and Holiday is relocated, the ship, like Sensation and Ecstasy, will be used as housing for "first respondents" and their families.
