Carnival Cruise Line has announced the cancellation of more cruises. Among other things, the company is extending the suspension of all its operations in the United States until March 31.

Affected passengers and travel agents will be informed directly of the options available to them, including the choice between a generous future cruise credit with an onboard credit package, or full refund, the company said. 

Cancellations include:

  • all cruises departing from United States home ports until March 31, 2021;
  • Carnival Freedom cruises from Galveston through April 10, 2021 (including the ship relocation cruise from Galveston to Seattle);
  • Carnival Miracle departures from San Diego and San Francisco through September 16, 2021 (which include many itineraries of 10 days and more, not permitted under current CDC guidelines );
  • Departures of Carnival Liberty from Port Canaveral from September 17 to October 18, 2021 (to allow postponed work in dry dock);
  • departures of the Carnival Sunshine from Charleston from October 11 to November 13, 2021 (to allow postponed work in dry dock);
  • the June 12 departure of the Carnival Spirit for its 15-day cruise from Singapore to Brisbane (in accordance with current limits on international travel that are in place in Australia).

“We are sorry to disappoint our guests as our reservations make it clear that there is a frustrated demand for Carnival cruises. We appreciate their patience and support as we continue to work on our 2021 business resumption plans, with a gradual and phased approach," said Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line.
