What Carnival Says

“We share our guests’ disappointment in this necessary action, as this group of sailings included a number of unique itineraries and the introduction of new ships, homeports and destinations to our network,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “Our team has been hard at work making plans for these voyages for over a year and the strong response by our guests suggests tremendous enthusiasm for these offerings which we hope to bring back at the right time.”

Compensation Offered

Carnival has outlined its compensation offered below.

Cruises six or more days 

  • Option 1: Passengers can receive a 100 percent future cruise credit, plus $600 on board credit per stateroom to be used on their next cruise.
  • Option 2: Guests who opt not to take a future cruise credit can receive a 100 percent refund.

Cruises five days or less 

  • Option 1: Passengers can receive a 100 percent future cruise credit, plus $300 on board credit per stateroom to be used on their next cruise.
  • Option 2: Guests who opt not to take a future cruise credit can receive a 100 percent refund.

North American Sailings Also On Extended Pause

This comes on the heels of news that Carnival would be extending their suspension of North American cruises through May 11. Originally, the ships were hoping to set sail again in April, but that proved to be an untenable plan of action.

“We remain to our return to service,” the company said, “and will use this time to continue to build additional processes, protocols and resources to protect the health and safety of our guests, crew and the destinations we serve.”

Something To Look Forward To

Looking ahead to 2021, Carnival Magic and Carnival Legend have a full slate of sailings available, with voyages leaving out of Barcelona, London and Rome.

The Carnival Legend will visit some of Europe’s most gorgeous destinations in 2021.

The 2021 European season features cruises lasting between 7 and 13 days, with the longest being a nearly two-week trip out of London aboard the Carnival Legend. As of now, bookings are available on trips sailing between April and October of 2021.
