Carnival Offering Options for Booked Guests

Carnival Cruise Line has written a letter offering options for those booked on a cruise that sails between now and July 31, 2021.

Guests can keep their reservation, and receive $100 onboard credit per cabin if the cruise does take place. If the cruise is canceled, they will receive a future cruise credit and a hefty onboard credit for the next voyage. The second option is to cancel themselves before March 31, 2021. In this case, guests will receive a full refund. 

And a third, unmentioned option is to rebook the cruise for a future date, where fees and penalties will be waived. But should the original cruise sail, no additional onboard credit will be given.

Those who booked with a Future Cruise Credit will have their credit re-applied to their account within seven days.
