Carnival Dream, one of eight Carnival ships that will restart service on 1AUG.

Carnival Cruise Line says it plans to phase in a resumption of North American service on 1AUG with a total of eight ships from Miami, Port Canaveral and Galveston. 

The ships include: 

  • Galveston:  Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista
  • Miami:  Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation
  • Port Canaveral:  Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation.


"We are committed to supporting all public health efforts to manage the COVID-19 situation," said Carnival in a statement. "We are taking a measured approach, focusing our return to service on a select number of homeports where we have more significant operations that are easily accessible by car for the majority of our guests."

The cruise line is extending its pause in operations through at least 31AUG in all other markets. This includes all Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises from Seattle, as well as Carnival Splendor cruises in Australia. Also cancelled are the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise on 25SEP and the Honolulu-Brisbane transpacific cruise on 6OCT.

Impacted guests and their travel advisors are being notified by email and have the option for a combined future cruise credit (FCC) and onboard credit package, or a full refund. Carnival says guests can make their selection online, alleviating the need to contact the customer service centre.
