Luxury Cruise Guide
04 Sep, 2021
Carnival Cruise Line has announced details about additional ship restarts for November 2021 and beyond.
Eight of its ships have already resumed guest operations, with more returning to sea in September and October.
According to the cruise line, Carnival Valor will follow Carnival Glory in New Orleans with four- and five-night itineraries starting on November 1. Carnival Legend will set sail on November 14 out of Baltimore, replacing Carnival Pride, which resumes guest operations from Baltimore on September 12 and then moves its homeport to Tampa following a Panama Canal repositioning cruise. Carnival Pride’s new service from Tampa is scheduled to start on November 14.
Carnival Radiancewill have an inaugural voyage on December 13 out of Long Beach (rescheduled from November 5 due to a revised dry dock transformation plan). Carnival Conquest’s restart from Miami on October 8 has been postponed to December 13. Carnival Sensation’s October 21 restart from Mobile, AL, has been rescheduled to January 2022. In all, Carnival plans to have 15 ships sailing from seven U.S. homeports by mid-November.
With the extension of Carnival Sensation’s restart, five ships operating out of U.S. homeports will be moved to 2022: Carnival Liberty (Port Canaveral), Carnival Sunshine (Charleston), Carnival Paradise (Tampa); Carnival Ecstasy (Jacksonville); and Carnival Sensation (Mobile).
In addition, Carnival has canceled four more sailings for Carnival Spiritand Carnival Splendor out of Australia. Cruises on both ships have been canceled up to and including December 16, 2021.
Carnival will continue to meet the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) standard of vaccinated cruises. Guests are required to present proof of both vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test at check-in (with a small number of capacity-restricted exemptions granted for children below 12 and other guests who cannot be vaccinated). Carnival is working toward setting up mobile pre-cruise rapid testing sites at all of its homeports as a back-up alternative for vaccinated guests who are not able to make arrangements (details forthcoming). Guests are also required to wear masks in most indoor venues of the ship where people congregate.Find Great Cruise Deals
