Not very impressed with the condition of this ship. Embarking was easy but I think the Port of Mobile could streamline getting to the counter a bit quicker. From the elevator, directing us outside just to be directed back inside to the ... Read more

Got to Mobile that Friday at about 1230 after having a hiccup on the road from Jackson, MS (where we live) to Mobile. Had a tire almost blow out and had to be replaced. Got to the cruise terminal, and it was HOTTTTT. The line was forever, ... Read more

I did not want to come home from this trip. My mother and I decided we wanted to give cruising a try and chose the Mobile port as it was only a few hour drive. We weren't sure what to expect but knew it was one of the smaller ships and ... Read more

After reading all the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. So lets start from when you first arrive. The port at Mobile was super easy. We pulled our car right up, they took our luggage. After parking the car (also seamless) we got in ... Read more

We chose the Fantasy out of Mobile, AL because of the price and close proximity. If we are able to cruise on a larger ship, we definitely will. Also Carnival is our least favorite cruise line. We prefer Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. ... Read more
