I want to thank the US Coast Guard, The Port and City of Mobile, Customs and Border Protection and countless others who were helpful
I’d also like to thank our shoreside teams for working around the clock to make this happen and I want to thank our crew for everything.
I want to again apologize to our guests and their friends and family. The situation has been incredibly difficult and we're sorry for what happened.
Our company was founded on the idea of providing great vacations to fun loving Americans and clearly we failed on this cruise.
