Carnival Cruise Line canceled the next 4 months of voyages on one of their ships so the vessel can be chartered by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to support relief efforts in the Caribbean.
Carnival's Fascination ship has been chartered for housing relief workers in the USVI. The ship’s departures from October 15 through January 28, next year will be canceled. Carnival Fascination returns to year-round service out of San Juan beginning February 18.
All passengers who were booked on one of the canceled sailings will receive a full refund of the fare as well as pre-purchased shore trips and beverage packages.
Carnival is extending a 100% future cruise credit (toward any itinerary) when rebooked by mid-November.
