Carnival places new cruise ship in Mobile

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Mobile has a new cruise ship.

Carnival Cruise Lines has replaced its Fantasy ship in Mobile with the newer Elation.

The Fantasy left Saturday for its new post in Charleston, S.C., and the Elation arrived about 30 minutes later. Mobile Mayor Sam Jones said the Elation is eight years newer and is extraordinary. The Elation was previously based in San Diego, Calif.

Carnival says the ship will make four-day and five-day cruises to Mexico.

The mayor said his goal is to get Carnival to base a second ship in the port city.
