Carnival Pulls Another Ship from Australia

And one more makes two. 

Late last week Carnival announced they’d also be pulling Carnival Splendor from Australia to sail from the North America market. 

The move leaves no Carnival Cruise Line ships sailing in the South Pacific. 

However, with Australia gripping onto the cruise ban, the ships had to move towards more lucrative waters. 

This news comes after they announced that Spirit would be leaving down under for Jacksonville, Florida. 

At the time of broadcast, Carnival Splendor isn’t scheduled two return to AUS until September, and Carnival Spirit not until late 2023. 

Mobile, Alabama Looks for Cruise Ship

The city of Mobile received the word that when Carnival Ecstasy leaves the city in October 2022, there will not be a ship there for 11 months. 

An email that Mobile’s Mayor received from Carnival President Christine Duffy, said that a ship would reposition after an adjustment of operations in 2023. 

Until then, the city will have seven months of cruising in 2022, as Carnival Ecstasy resumes operations from the Gulf coast city on March 5. 

Before the cruise industry shutdown, Carnival Fantasy was sailing from Mobile since 2016. In July 2020, Carnival announced that Fantasy would be leaving the fleet. 

Last week the line announced that Carnival Sensation and Carnival Ecstasy would be put out to pasture. 

Norwegian Pearl to Resume Cruises Today

Norwegian’s next ship to return to service is scheduled to sail today. Norwegian Pearl is resuming sailings after canceling its last voyage in early January.

After Pearl returns, the next NCL ship to restart will be Norwegian Sky next month from PortMiami.

The company requires all guests to be fully-vaccinated two weeks prior to sailing.

Starting March 1, NCL guests will be required to have their own negative antigen or PCR test before arriving at the pier.
