I'm leaving Sunday on a cruise out of Tampa and am not worried, however as time goes by and it gets worse I might get nervous. Everyone cruising soon should expect this email.
GUEST HEALTH ADVISORY - CORONAVIRUS
January 30, 2020
Dear Carnival Guest,
Our highest responsibilities include the health and safety of our guests and crew. We are closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Although the risks to our guests and crew are low, our medical experts are coordinating closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to implement any recommended screening, prevention and control measures for our ships.
In accordance with guidance received from Cruise Lines International Association, and with the health and safety of guests and crew in mind, cruise lines, including ours, will also be implementing travel restrictions. Accordingly, all guests who have traveled to China in the last 14 days prior to their embarkation day will not be allowed to sail.
If you have been to China in the last 14 days prior to your embarkation day, please contact Guest Services at 1-800-CARNIVAL so we can discuss your situation and handle as appropriate. If you are booked through a travel advisor, please have them contact us on your behalf as soon as possible.
We sincerely regret any disappointment this may cause and ask for your understanding.
