Carnival Says It Likely Won’t Be Taking Test Cruise Volunteers

Like Royal Caribbean, Carnival has announced that it is planning to begin test cruises in the near future. Fans are excited about the prospect of being aboard these sailings, but Carnival likely won’t be taking volunteers from the general public.

A spokesperson from Carnival told Cruise Radio, “Although we are still finalizing our plans for test cruises, we do not expect to need volunteers at this time. We appreciate the support and understanding of our guests and travel partners.”

The test cruises are a requirement from the CDC for ships that will not be starting up with nearly all vaccinated passengers and crew.
