While some US states are easing into reopening, Carnival is following suit with a gradual return to cruises. The company announced today that on August 1 it will begin employing eight ships from Miami, Port Canaveral and Galveston.
But the world’s largest leisure ship operator also said it is continuing to cease operating all other North American and Australian markets through August 31.
Here’s the plan
- No North American cruises will happen from June 27 to July 31.
- However starting August 1, Carnival will resume operations on the following ships:
- Galveston: Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista
- Miami: Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation
- Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation.
- Other than the above referenced service from Galveston, Miami, and Port Canaveral, all
All Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises from Seattle are cancelled. The same goes for the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise on September 25 and the Honolulu-Brisbane transpacific cruise on October 6. Cruises on Carnival Splendor in Australia are also cancelled through August of this year.
