Cruise Ship Heading To Mobile For Second Landing In A Row
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Coast Guard's captain of the Port of New Orleans says the owners of the Carnival Fantasy have decided to divert the cruise ship to Mobile for a second landing.

The Fantasy had to dock at Mobile on Saturday. The Mississippi River was still closed after a collision between a tanker and a barge had spilled hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil into the water.

Captain Lincoln Stroh says he considers the cleanup far enough along for the Fantasy to return to its home port Thursday. But he says Carnival Corporation decided to use the Port of Mobile again.
