Carnival announced that the Carnival Triumph and the Carnival Fantasy would delay their inaugural cruises out of new homeports.

The Carnival Triumph was set to call on New Orleans for the first time yesterday until mother nature had its way. The whole gulf coast, even as far as over here in Galveston, got rain. Although near Mobile, AL and New Orleans, LA, it was heavier. Carnival decided to push the Inaugural call back to today. As a result, she will sail a modified trip from 4-Nights to 3-Nights.

Over in Mobile, Alabama, the Carnival Fantasy was all ready to be the replacement for the recently departed Holiday, when her call was also delayed. The 6-night cruise will now be a 5-night trip.
