What’s Hot Right Now
Carnival will continue to offer vaccine cruises on its ships until at least October.
Carnival is informing travel advisors and guests about “an extension in its pause of operations through Sept. 5 for Carnival Pride from Baltimore, Sept. 11 for Carnival Dream from Galveston, Oct. 4 for Carnival Conquest from Miami, and Oct. 16 for Carnival Sensation from Mobile,” according to a statement.

In addition, a three-day Carnival Miracle cruise from Long Beach on September 24 has been canceled, and Carnival Miracle will resume sailing from Long Beach on September 27, according to the company.
Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy stated, “We are extremely pleased about our relaunch and truly appreciate the support of our passengers, travel agencies, and port and destination partners.”
“By the end of July, we will have five ships in our restart plan, including the addition of Mardi Gras service, and we are witnessing a wonderful mix of high demand and excellent guest satisfaction ratings linked to the pleasant guest experience on board,” says the company.
On cruises lasting more than four days, unvaccinated guests will be tested for COVID-19 before the trip and before departure.
A fee of $150 per individual will be levied to cover the expenses of testing and screenings.
Carnival is also restricting its supervised youth activities, at least until October, to vaccinated youngsters aged 12 and above.
“By the end of the year, we hope to have successfully brought back our entire fleet, returning to full service – especially for the millions of families who sail with us – and rebuilding our business for the benefit of our guests, employees, and the tens of thousands of jobs and local businesses that rely on us,” Duffy said.
“As we finalize the vaccinated passenger count, we will continue to provide exemptions to our unvaccinated guests on a restricted, capacity-managed basis within 14 days before sailing. The more fully vaccinated passengers we can book for our trips at the outset, the more exemptions we can give to those unvaccinated guests who have already booked and those who want to sail.”
