Carnival Cruise Line is notifying guests of additional cruise cancellations, as it's extended its "pause" for all U.S. cruises through March 31, 2021. In addition, the line also cancelled some voyages for select ships and certain homeport operations; this is related to specific itineraries and ship drydock work.
“We are sorry to disappoint our guests, as we can see from our booking activity that there is clearly a pent-up demand for cruising on Carnival," said Christine Duffy, the line's president, in a press statement. "We appreciate their patience and support as we continue to work on our plans to resume operations in 2021 with a gradual, phased in approach."
Booked guests and travel advisors are being notified directly of the cancellations and their options for a future cruise credit and onboard credit package, or a full refund.
