Carnival Cruise Line Will Restart Eight Ships In August

Carnival Cruise Line revealed plans to resume limited navigation from August.

As part of the phased restoration of services in North America this summer, a total of eight ships will depart from Miami, Port Canaveral and Port of Galveston.

From August 1, Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista will set sail from Galveston, while Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Festive will provide services in Miami.

At the same time, the Carnival Breeze and the Carnival happily will return to Port Canaveral.

However, all other domestic port services from Australia and North America have been cancelled until August 31.

All Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises departing from Seattle will be cancelled, and the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise on September 25 and the Honolulu-Brisbane trans-Pacific cruise on October 6 will be cancelled.

All Carnival Splendor cruise ships in Australia from June 19 to August 31 will be cancelled.

“We are committed to supporting all public health efforts to manage the Covid-19 situation,” Carnival Corporation said in a statement.

“We are taking a measured approach, focusing our return to service on a select number of homeports where we have more significant operations that are easily accessible by car for the majority of our guests.

“We will use this additional time to continue to engage experts, government officials and stakeholders on additional protocols and procedures to protect the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we serve.

“We appreciate the understanding and support of our guests and travel agent partners and look forward to welcoming them on board as the environment for travel and tourism improves.”
