New Orleans Passengers Arrive in Mobile for Conquest

New Orleans Passengers Arrive in Mobile for Conquest

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Nearly 24 hours after it came into mobile, the Conquest is getting ready to ship out-- this time to the Bahamas.

By now it's an old routine. Folks at the cruise terminal have this routine down pat.

Today, Mobile is expecting around 3,500 passengers arriving from New Orleans all this morning. Buses began arriving about two hours ago, around 10:00 a.m.

With an added two and half hour drive factored into people's vacation, we're finding some mind the inconvenience while others are just going with the flow.

They're expecting 90 buses total today. They're taking them straight into the parking garage where news media is not allowed.

News 5 did talk with one couple from yesterday's cruise who missed their flight.

News 5 will have their story and more coming up at 5 and 6.
