The Mobile – Alabama Cruise Terminal has from the outset been homeport to the Carnival Holiday, a cruise ship with capacity 1600 passengers. Carnival decided to replace the Carnival Holiday for the Carnival Fantasy, a larger, 2052 passenger ship. ADELTE was contracted to design an aDa compliant completely mobile HYDRA PBB.
This HYDRA Passenger Boarding Bridge, equipped with 14 motor driven solid tyres can move along the whole dock. Electro-mechanically powered elevation systems allow the PBB to connect with cruise ship entry doors at various levels. The boarding bridge is built completely according to americans with Disabilities act (ADA) guidelines and its glass mounted tunnel sections and air-conditioning significantly enhances comfort for the boarding and disembarking of cruise guests, of all ages.
