Salvation Army personnel are presently providing snacks, coffee, hot chocolate and hot meals to families of passengers awaiting the arrival of their loved ones to Mobile.

Estimated arrival times for the ship are close to midnight tonight and Salvation Army personnel will remain vigilant in their efforts until the ship has docked.
