Is Carnival Turning Into a Nightmare?

Carnival Cruise Lines' (NYSE: CCL  ) Triumph disaster, when an engine caught fire and stranded many passengers at sea for days, may have happened early in 2013, but the memory is still fresh in the minds of would-be shareholders.

    I would like to see Carnival go back to Mobile, AL - they had built a multi million facility for the company and then they go to New Orleans - in the past few months Carnival has had to use the port at Mobile twice for bigger boats than they had there before - I believe they would make more money if they went back to Mobile - people don't like to drive several hundred miles to reach their ship and with airline prices it only adds to the trip when people can't afford expensive trips - my vote is they go back to Mobile and have their stocks go up.
