Carnival Cruise Line currently has all cruises through the end of November canceled with only sailings out of Miami and Port Canaveral scheduled for December. Yesterday, Carnival had sailings for the last two weeks of the year listed for these two ports. They have now all been removed.
It is important to note that Carnival Cruise Line has not yet canceled these sailings in December out of Miami and Port Canaveral. However, every time in the past where they removed cruises from their booking engine, they canceled them a short time later.
Cruises in December 2020 are no longer listed on Carnival.com or Carnival Cruise Line’s travel agent site GoCCL.com.
Guests who are booked on a Carnival cruise in December can cancel any time prior to departure and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit that comes with up to $600 in onboard credit or they can choose a full refund of their cruise fare.
Carnival had cruises scheduled in December out of Miami and Port Canaveral on six cruise ships: Carnival Conquest, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Sunrise, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Elation, and Carnival Liberty.
Carnival Cruise Line currently has cruises in January out of at least 11 cruise ports around the U.S. listed on their booking engine at this time.
Yesterday, the CDC said that they will not renew the No Sail Order that is scheduled to expire today. They will now have a Conditional Sail Order and cruise lines can begin to slowly resume service as soon as the CDC approves of their new health protocols.
While no one knows for sure when cruises will resume out of the U.S., this is a step in the right direction.
When cruise lines do restart service, it will likely be on just a handful of cruise ships to start with. They will take a phased in approach to resuming sailings.
