MIAMI – Following the CDC’s decision to extend its no-sail order for cruise operations to the end of October, Carnival Cruise Line announced today that it is notifying guests and travel agents that it has cancelled cruises from all U.S. homeports except Miami and Port Canaveral for November and December 2020.
“As we have said throughout this pause, our return to operations will be gradual and phased in. And while we are not making any presumptions, once cruising is allowed, we will center our initial start-up from the homeports of Miami and Port Canaveral,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
Carnival said it is continuing to work on protocols and procedures that would allow for the resumption of cruise operations, with a gradual, phased-in approach, designating Miami and Port Canaveral as the first two homeports for embarkations. Cruises currently scheduled for November and December from those two homeports will remain in place for the time being while Carnival evaluates options.
What never ceases to amaze us is that there are still thousands of people who were willing to risk infection and/or quarantine and take a cruise at this time. Here’s what some disappointed people who were planning to cruise had to say to us after Carnival’s announcement that it was cancelling their November and December cruises:
