A date for the return of guest cruising operations from U.S. ports has not yet been determined by the cruise line as they work with the CDC.
Earlier in February, Carnival Cruise Line began providing more flexible options for guests booked into early summer so that they could cancel their reservation without penalty if they needed or wanted to make other plans.
As it has done throughout the pause, Carnival is providing guests on cruises cancelled today the choice of a future cruise credit plus onboard credit package, or a full refund.
“We continue to work on plans to resume operations and are encouraged by the focus to expedite vaccine production and distribution which are having a demonstrated impact on improving public health,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “We appreciate the support of all of our guests, employees and trade partners who we know are looking forward to our return.”
Carnival Cruise Line had previously canceled all cruises through the end of April 2021. The cruise line paused operations back on March 13, 2020.
