Carnival Cruise Line has removed all cruises in August and all cruises except for two in September from their booking engine.
Carnival Cruise Line has not yet made an announcement regarding these cruises that they took off of their website for bookings this week. The two previous times that Carnival removed cruises from their booking engine, they announced their cancellations a short time later. Both times the cruise line first stated that they removed the cruises due to ships being at capacity. Cruise ships are expected to sail at reduced capacity when they start sailing again.
Carnival was planning on resuming cruises on select cruise ships in August. However, Carnival’s CEO Arnold Donald recently stated that he wasn’t sure when cruises would be able to start back up. The earliest dates that the cruise line now has open for bookings is the September 25 and 29 sailings on Carnival Splendor out of Sydney, Australia.
Carnival Cruise Line has the following update on GOCCL.com, their booking engine for travel agents: “Update: We are currently assessing enhanced health and safety protocols in light of COVID-19 and how they may impact our future offerings. Our actual offerings may vary from what is displayed or described here.”
Norwegian Cruise Line announced this week that they have cancelled all cruises on their three cruise lines until October.
Cruise Fever will have all updates when more information becomes available.
