CCL-Carnival Cruise Line has notified its customers and travel advisor partners of cancellations for additional voyages, hoping for a possible July restart in the USA on select liners.
If CCL can find a solution to allow vessels to visit Alaska, Carnival Miracle would assume some of Carnival Freedom’s departures out of Seattle WA. CCL revealed there was still some uncertainty in their ability to operate those cruises, and passengers booked on those sailings who wished to make alternate summer vacation plans might cancel without penalty by May 31 and receive a full refund.
The company is cancelling sailings on all other cruise ships through July 30. Guests whose voyages are cancelled are eligible for an FCC (future cruise credit) and OBC (onboard credit) or a full refund.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“We continue to have constructive discussions with the CDC but still have many questions that remain unanswered. We are working diligently to resume sailing in the U.S. and meet the CDC guidelines.
“We sincerely appreciate the continued patience and understanding of our guests and travel advisor partners and will share additional information as quickly as we can.”
