Those embarking on the next voyage, scheduled to depart from New Orleans on Saturday, July 26, should proceed to New Orleans as planned. A complimentary motorcoach will bring passengers from New Orleans' Erato Street terminal to Mobile to the board the ship; the ship is expected to be able to resume regular turnarounds from New Orleans by the end of that voyage.
Those who are being dropped off and not leaving a car may proceed straight to Mobile if they prefer.
Both the current voyage and the upcoming sailing are five-night Western Caribbean cruises visiting Progreso and Cozumel.
