   November 11, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

CCL-Carnival Cruise Line removed all sailings from its website that are over 7 nights from USA-based homeports through October 2021.

The first Carnival cruises over 7 nights and leaving out of the US are scheduled for November 2021 on the ships Carnival Dream, Carnival Horizon and Carnival Magic.

The company is continuing discussions with the CDC about the October 30 order which lays out conditions under which sailings in the USA can resume, including the proposed 7-day cap on itineraries. CCL has closed for sale any 8-day or longer voyages from the USA and revealed they would update passengers and travel agents once the line made decisions about those itineraries.

When CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) submitted their recommendations regarding how sailings could safely resume, it said they should begin with shorter cruises.

On November 2, CCL cancelled all North America voyages - following CLIA's announcement that all its ocean-ship member brands extend the voluntary cruise suspensions through December 31, 2020.
