We chose this cruise as it was a central departure port for our family of eleven. We had previously sailed on the Carnival Fantasy in 2006 so we expected some wear and tear on the ship. After reading port reviews of Mobile, we were very worried. We could not have been more wrong. The pre-paid parking was easy. The check-in process was very organized and everyone we encountered was efficient and friendly. We were greeted with champagne as soon as we got on the boat. We ate lunch at Guy's burger joint and then our room was ready. We opted for a porthole room and it was exactly as we hoped. The ship does show some age, but everything was very clean. Our room steward, Ranil, and his team were friendly and attended to all of our needs. This is not the nicest ship we have been on, but there were no complaints. Food in the main dining room, headed by Roderick Cabuay, was good as was the service. We also enjoyed the Blue Iguana, pizza place and deli. We all definitely enjoyed this cruise and would certainly sail from Mobile again.
