(4 p.m. EST) -- The 2,056-passenger Carnival Fantasy will call the Mobile Cruise Terminal in Alabama its homeport for another year under a new contract between Carnival Cruise Line and the city.

Carnival Fantasy began sailing from Mobile in 2016. This is the second one-year extension. Carnival Fantasy has regularly scheduled four-day cruises to Cozumel leaving on Thursdays, and five-day cruises to Cozumel and Costa Maya or Progresso on alternate Mondays and Saturdays.

Carnival began offering cruises from Mobile in 2004, but moved Carnival Elation to Florida in 2011. That prompted city and state officials to spend more than $4 million on terminal improvements, updating its appearance with new paint and a new interior design while also improving passengers' experience by adding a pay-in-advance parking option and expediting security checks.

Mobile's mayor, Sandy Stimpson, said that Fantasy has generated millions of dollars for the city and local businesses, noting the cruise line's presence "has played a major role in our pursuit to establish Mobile as a major tourist destination."
