Refunds will be automatically processed and all cruise fares, taxes, port fees, pre-paid gratuities, shore excursions, beverage packages etc. will be refunded 100%.
Carnival Cruise Line is also reimbursing guests up to $200 per person for any non-refundable airline change fees due to the canceled cruises. Reimbursements can be submitted at [email protected].
