Beginning August 1, Carnival Cruise Line is planning  to resume cruises on the following ships:

All Carnival Splendor cruises in Australia from June 19 to August 31 will be cancelled.

Impacted guests and their travel advisors are being notified by email, including options for a combined future cruise credit (FCC) and onboard credit (OBC) package, or a full refund. Booked guests can make their selection online, alleviating the need to contact Carnival’s customer service center, which is still operating in a work-from-home status due to locally-imposed office closures in South Florida.

Carnival Cruise Line is committed to supporting all public health efforts to manage the COVID-19 situation. The cruise line is taking a measured approach, focusing their return to service on a select number of homeports where they have more significant operations that are easily accessible by car for the majority of their guests.

Carnival will use this additional time to continue to engage experts, government officials and stakeholders on additional protocols and procedures to protect the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities they serve. Carnival appreciates the understanding and support of their guests and travel agent partners and look forward to welcoming them on board as the environment for travel and tourism improves.
