Three upcoming sailings on Carnival Vista have been canceled so the cruise ship can be repaired. Carnival Cruise Line sent out the following message explaining the reasoning for the cancelation of the cruises and compensation that passengers who were booked on one of these cruises will be given.
You can read the letter from Carnival Cruise Line below that relates to the July 6, 13, and 20 sailings on Carnival Vista:
“Carnival Vista has been experiencing an issue affecting its maximum cruising speed. Unfortunately, we will be unable to operate the above voyages, as it is necessary to remove the ship from service to complete the required repairs.
We sincerely apologize for the unanticipated disruption to your vacation plans. We are deeply disappointed that we will not be able to deliver the cruise we had planned for you.
We will automatically process a full refund of your cruise fare, including pre-purchased Carnival shore excursions and any FunShop purchases. Please be advised that it could take up to three weeks to process through your bank.
We will reimburse you up to US$200.00, per person, for any independent air expenses and/or change fees. Please submit supporting documentation via email to [email protected].
Since we’d love nothing more than to welcome you back, we will be extending a 100% future cruise credit.* The credit must be used to rebook a sailing taking place before December 20, 2020.
Once again, we are very sorry for the disappointment this has caused and thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you on a Carnival cruise in the near future.”
The current sailing and next week’s sailing on Carnival Vista had to be modified due to the technical issue with the cruise ship.
Cruise Fever will continue to monitor the situation with Carnival Vista and will have all information as it becomes available.
