In this photo released by Carnival Cruise Lines, the Carnival cruise ship Fantasy is lit up at the Port of New Orleans Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2006. On Thursday Oct. 26, the ship is to begin regularly scheduled, four-and five-day cruises to Mexico from New Orleans, marking the resumption of New Orleans as an origination port for Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines. Carnival was the first company to embark from New Orleans on a year-round basis, but it has not been able to base a cruise ship here since prior to Hurricane Katrina. (Carnival Cruise Lines)
