Cruises from Mobile

Taking a cruise from Mobile, Alabama is particularly popular among those that live in the area that's within driving distance of the Port of Mobile. Such cruises weren't being offered for some time, but Carnival Cruise Line is once again offering these cruises for sale. Departures don't start until November of 2016.

Mobile, located on the Mobile River, is one of the cultural centers of the Gulf Coast and is the third most populated city in Alabama. Mobile is well known for its museums, historic architecture and fun Mardi Gras celebrations (occurring annually and dating back to the early 1700s).

Carnival is the only major cruise line offering cruises from Mobile. Itineraries include 4- and 4-night Western Caribbean cruises aboard Carnival Fantasy. The 4-night Western Caribbean itinerary typically includes a port of call in Cozumel, Mexico, while the 5-night itinerary usually features ports of call in Cozumel and Yucatan (Progreso), Mexico.
