Carnival Cruise Line will continue to sail from Mobile through 2022, signing a three-year extension with the Alabama city.

With the agreement, the Carnival Fantasy will continue its four- and five-day cruises to Mexico from the Alabama Cruise Terminal. About 170,000 cruise passengers per year sail from Mobile. Carnival is the only cruise line to sail from the port.

In 2011, Carnival stopped sailing from the port leaving its terminal empty, but it was persuaded to return starting in 2015.
