Carnival Cruise Line has extended its pause in operations through June 26, 2020.
This decision is in the wake of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issuing an extension to its no sail order.
The original CDC was intended to be in place for 30 days, but it will now stay in place until the Secretary of Health and Human Services no longer considers COVID-19 a public health emergency, the CDC director rescinds or modifies the order, or 100 days pass.
Here is the announcement from Carnival Cruise Line…
CARNIVAL EXTENDS PAUSE IN OPERATIONS
As we all work together to support the global response to COVID-19, we will be extending our pause in operations again.
All North American itineraries will be canceled through June 26, resuming again on June 27, 2020.
We are also canceling Carnival Sunrise seasonal itineraries out of New York, this summer and fall, to the end of 2020.
This is disappointing, but we are committed to being a strong partner with the government and taking steps to maintain public confidence in our business.
If your sailing has been impacted, you will have received an email direct from Carnival or your Travel Advisor. This email will have all the instructions you need to claim your cancellation offer or refund.
Our call center continues to experience very high volumes of calls so the quickest way to claim is by using the link in the email.
As always, we want to extend our thanks to all our guests and Travel Agent partners for continuing to support us. Stay safe and well everyone.
So that makes it official for my intended May 30 cruise in place of the canceled March 14 one.
