CCL cancels month-long cruises on Carnival Glory ship due to drydock-refurbishment

   February 8, 2023 ,   Accidents

CCL-Carnival Cruise Line announced it is canceling a month of voyages aboard its Carnival Glory ship in the spring of 2024, due to drydock-refurbishment.

In a letter to affected passengers, Carnival said that in their ongoing efforts to improve their product, Carnival Glory was now scheduled for dry dock and they regretted to inform them the reservations had been canceled.

In case a voyage is canceled due to a drydock, passengers are able to rebook another cruise at a protected rate on a comparable voyage in a similar cabin with a US$50 credit per stateroom.

Guests who don't want to postpone their sailing will automatically receive a full refund of the cost of the cruise ticket and pre-purchased packages after February 15th, 2023. Refunds can take up to 3 weeks to process.

The last major renovation of Carnival Glory was a 2022 wet dock (the liner was not taken out of the water) where she underwent cosmetic improvements (renaming the cafe to JavaBlue Cafe, expanding the casino, and adding a Carnival Adventures Store).

The next one is a full drydock at the Grand Bahama Shipyard (Freeport, Bahamas). It will take place from March 24th, 2024, through May 1st, 2024.

Currently, Carnival Glory is sailing from New Orleans (Port NOLA, Louisiana) until early 2024. Following her drydock next spring, she will relocate to Port Canaveral/Orlando (Florida) to offer 3- and 4-night Bahamas roundtrips.
