MIAMI — Carnival Cruise Line is cancelling the remaining cruises for its six ships operating from PortMiami and Port Canaveral for November 2020.
The news follows the line’s earlier announcement this month that it has cancelled all but PortMiami and Port Canaveral cruises for the rest of the year. The decision was made in response to the CDC’s decision to extend it no-sail order for cruise operations until Oct. 31. It has now determined that November 2020 operations for the PortMiami and Port Canaveral will not be feasible.
In addition to the two homeports, Carnival has also cancelled five cruises scheduled to operate from Sydney, Australia from Jan. 16-Feb. 8, 2021.
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 these two homeports remain in place for the time being while Carnival evaluates its options.
Guests booked on cruises in December out of Miami and Port Canaveral will still have the ability to voluntarily cancel their reservation and receive the same offer 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 the five impacted cruises have been cancelled. These guests will receive the same offer of the combination FCC/OBC, or a full refund.
