Carnival Cruise Line has now extended their cancelations through April 2021. The cruise line also moved the start date for Mardi Gras from Port Canaveral to May 29, 2021.
“Our guests and travel agent partners continue to express their loyalty to Carnival and their desire to get back on our ships as soon as they can, and we are heartened by the booking demand and activity we continue to see. We are certainly committed to welcoming them back as quickly as possible, but unfortunately, we have determined it’s going to take a while longer, and the situation in Europe will also impact Mardi Gras’ departure to the U.S. and Carnival Legend’s itineraries in Europe,” said Carnival Cruise Line president, Christine Duffy.
Royal Caribbean and Norwegian cruise lines have also announced that they won’t be sailing until May 2021.
Disney Cruise Line might not be far behind. April sailings have been removed from the Disney Cruise Line website. That usually happens right before DCL announces more cancelations. As of today, all Disney cruises have been suspended through March.
A lot of cruise lines are preparing to resume sailing but might have difficulty with the test cruises.
Stay tuned for more updates and news regarding the cruise industry.
