Carnival Cruise Line has now canceled all cruises through April 30, 2021 from the U.S. and has also canceled Australian operations through May 19, 2021.
In addition, Carnival Cruise Line has cancelled the European itineraries for Carnival Legend which were to begin this May through October 31, 2021.
Carnival has also moved the start date for their new cruise ship, Mardi Gras. The ship will now depart from Port Canaveral for her first cruise on May 29, 2021.
Booked guests and travel agents are being notified directly of the cancellations and their options for a generous future cruise credit and onboard credit package, or a full refund.
“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 Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
