Three July Sailings on Carnival Vista Cancelled

Carnival Vista

Carnival Cruise Line has cancelled three upcoming sailings on the Carnival Vista, a cruise line representative has confirmed to Travel Agent, due to an issue affecting the ship’s maximum cruising speed. It has also modified two other upcoming itineraries. 

Due to the speed issue, the seven-day cruise that had been scheduled to depart on June 22 from Galveston will now be an eight-day cruise departing June 23, returning July 1. The cruise that had been scheduled for June 29 will now depart July 1, and it will also last eight days. 

Following the July 1 sailing, the ship will be taken out of service for 17 days to reposition and complete the required repairs, Carnival said. As a result, the July 6, July 13 and July 20 cruises will be cancelled. The ship will return to service July 27.
