Carnival Cruise Line previously had canceled all cruises through the end of the year. The cruise line has now canceled all cruises through the end of January 2021 as well as sailings from a few home ports after that.

Cruises that Carnival Cruise Line has now canceled include:

  • All embarkations from U.S. homeports from January 1-31, 2021.
  • Baltimore, Charleston, Jacksonville, Long Beach, Mobile, New Orleans and San Diego embarkations through February 28, 2021.
  • Embarkations on Carnival Legend out of Tampa through March 26, 2021.

Carnival Cruise Line is in the process of building a gradual, phased in approach to resume guest operations, which will focus initially on Miami and Port Canaveral, to be followed by Galveston. Consistent with CDC protocols, Carnival Horizon arrives in Miami this week, and Carnival Breeze will be the next ship back to the U.S.

In total, 16 Carnival cruise ships are currently following the CDC process for an eventual resumption of guest service in the U.S. in 2021, including Carnival Conquest, Dream, Ecstasy, Elation, Freedom, Glory, Liberty, Miracle, Panorama, Pride, Sensation, Sunrise, Sunshine and Vista. Mardi Gras, which is under construction in Finland, will also enter service in 2021.

With this announcement Carnival Cruise Line’s operations are paused in the U.S. through January 31, 2021. In addition, Carnival had previously cancelled certain other itineraries on four ships (Magic, Paradise, Valor, and Victory/Radiance) that are scheduled for required dry docks in the first half of 2021, with the plan to return them to operations after maintenance work and upgrades are completed. Carnival previously cancelled operations in Australia through March 2, 2021.
