Following the decision of the USA's CDC agency to extend its "no-sail" order for cruise shipping operations until October 31, Carnival Cruise Line cancelled all but PortMiami and Port Canaveral sailings for the rest of 2020. However, it has now determined that November operations will not be feasible.
The company continues to work on procedures and protocols that would allow for the resumption of cruises, with a gradual, phased-in approach, designating PortMiami and Port Canaveral as the first 2 homeports for embarkations.
Voyages currently scheduled for December 2020 from those 2 homeports remain in place for the time being while Carnival Cruise Line evaluates options. However, passengers booked on sailings in December from PortMiami and Port Canaveral still have the ability to cancel their reservation and receive the same offer that other impacted guests are receiving, which includes a combination of future cruise credit and onboard credit, or a full refund.
In Australia, the cruise line is notifying passengers and travel agents that 5 cruises on Carnival Splendor between January 16-February 8, 2021 have been cancelled. Splendor's first departure is on Feb 18. Those passengers will receive the same offer of the combination future cruise credit (FCC) and onboard credit (OBC), or a full refund.
