MIAMI, 14 October 2020: Carnival Cruise Line has notified guests and travel agents that it is cancelling the remaining cruises for the six total ships operating from Port Miami and Port Canaveral for November 2020.
It has also cancelled five cruises scheduled to operate from Sydney, Australia from 16 January to 8 February 2021.
Following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) decision to extend its no-sail order for cruise operations until 31 October, Carnival cancelled all but Port Miami and Port Canaveral cruises for the rest of the year. It has now determined that November 2020 operations will not be feasible.
Carnival continues to work on protocols and procedures that would allow for the resumption of cruise operations, with a gradual, phased-in approach, designating Miami and Port Canaveral as the first two homeports for embarkations.
Cruises currently scheduled for December from those two homeports remain in place for the time being while Carnival evaluates options.
However, guests booked on cruises in December out of Miami, and Port Canaveral still have the ability to voluntarily cancel their reservations and receive the same offers that all other impacted guests are receiving, which includes a combination future cruise credit (FCC) and onboard credit (OBC), or a full refund.
In Australia, Carnival is notifying guests and travel agents that five cruises on Carnival Splendor from 16 January to 8 February have been cancelled. Those guests will receive the same offer of the combination FCC/OBC, or a full refund.
