I think it will be great for the local economy.  People will spend a day or two pre or post cruise in the area spending vacation $$ at local hotels, tourist sites, restaurants and gift shops not to mention creating new jobs at the port.   It will also give us cruiser a different port of departure and hopefully a new itinerary to choose from.

More convenient home ports may entice more passengers to cruise.

This will definitely be a good thing for Mobile and the local economy but it is unlikely that we will ever take a cruise out of this port.  Having the option is great but for those flying in to get on the ship, Mobile is not particularly convenient. I also think that the Tourist Bureau will need to do some big time advertising to attract people to want to visit the surrounding area pre/post cruise.
