Carnival paused operations in mid-March 2020 at the request of President Trump, and they announced an extension of the date through May 11, 2020.
According to the announcement today…
As COVID-19 continues to impact global health and commerce, we are sorry to extend our pause in our operations until May 11. If you have an impacted sailing, 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 cancelation offer or refund. Our call center continues to experience a very high volume of calls, so the quickest way to claim is by using the link in your email. If your sailing is after May 11, 2020, you have not been impacted. Please continue to stay safe. We want to thank both our guests and Travel Advisors for their continued patience and support.
Hopefully, we will all turn a corner soon on COVID-19 and get back to whatever is the new normal. I’ve got a lot of interest in this date because I’d like to reschedule my canceled cruise for late May. We shall see.
