Carnival cruise ship docks in Mobile for crew vaccinations

Carnival Sensation cruise ship


Carnival is docking a cruise ship in Mobile to allow its crew members to be vaccinated.

The Sensation will dock on Friday and staff members from USA Health will board to provide first doses to 110 workers on the ship. The cruiser will then retrun in three weeks for employees to receive their second doses.

Mobile mayor Sandy Stimpson said the vaccinations are a major step toward getting the cruise industry back in business. Once cruises resume, the Sensation will be based in Mobile and offer trips to the western Caribbean. All U.S. ports have been closed to cruise lines amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
