Carnival Breeze - August 10, 2020 from Port Canaveral

Recommended Posts

What is the gut feeling from everyone on the probability of this ship sailing?  It's the second cruise out.  If they find people sick on the Aug 1 sailing, will they cancel this one?  We will have driven 8 hours to FL before they will know for us to be denied boarding?

 

We are from SC and not in a Hot Spot.  What States are you are from?  Concerned that since not many Carnival ships are sailing within driving distance, that many hot spot states will be on board.  

 

Thoughts?

From what I gather, usually cancellations are 30 days out. We are driving 5 hours to Jacksonville beginning of September. Are you concerned about hot spots in Florida? Brevard County, which I believe PC is part of, currently has 266 confirmed, 45 recovered and 8 deaths. Pretty comparable to York County (where I live) in SC which currently has 222 confirmed and 5 deaths. This info is from here:

I am looking at this from a totally different perspective (retired with no restrictions on our time, and live two hours from the port), but I think this cruise is a bit too ambitious for August.  I cannot see your sailing online (sold out?), but based on the other itinerary, it appears to be an Eastern Caribbean, at least six nights.  My biggest fear is that the scheduled ports will not be open at that time.  I have a cruise scheduled once a month this year, in hopes that sooner or later, one of them will actually sail.  I just moved the June cruise to next year because I don’t believe it is going to happen, but June and July are/were 4-nights on Royal to their private island and Nassau.  Two days on the private island would be fine if Nassau is not open, and we would be fine with all sea days.  The next one is the private island and Labadee, also controlled by Royal.  Then a Carnival cruise to Half Moon Cay, Amber Cove, and Grand Turk.  If Grand Turk is not open, another day at sea will be fine.  Our first 7-nighter with Caribbean ports is not until November.  My theory is that shorter cruises to private islands have the best chance of actually sailing.  If it were me, I would not want to make an investment in that long drive to take a chance on a greatly-altered itinerary.  I would consider rebooking to October or November, or trying a shorter cruise to Half Moon Cay or Princess Cays (yes, I realize that is a long drive for a short cruise).

Sending you good Breeze vibes.  I hope you go off without a hitch.  All we can do is keep fingers crossed.

We we're due on the 22nd of August sailing which we've now cancelled and transferred to the Mardi Gras the following August. When I called to cancel I was told my cruise was in fact a 'paused cruise' and given the $600 OBC in addition to my cruise being transferred.

I live in Florida and I would be stunned if any cruises take place in August from here. I have cruises booked in September and October and I expect both of them to be cancelled.

This is interesting.  Was your cruise on the Breeze as well?

I’m not concerned about hot spots, it’s still 3 1/2 months until our cruises. We fly to all our cruises, we are in north central Illinois, hopefully not for long. Gotta get out of this state.  We are on the September 5th/ 13th Horizon out of Miami. Right now we are hunkered down in our home, both of us are seniors. Looking forward to the cruises, hope there’s not to many burdensome restrictions that ruin the cruise.

My 2 cent opinion:

  Florida’s Governor will allow the cruise ships who are scheduled to cruise ... GO!!  He appears to have minimally kept his state “closed” and “opened”  many segments of the everyday life, why not cruising?  Plus, the pressure (to get those big ships out back on the ocean) on politicians from the Florida based Carnival must be huge!!   I’m certainly not advocating any health safety risks. Basing my opinion on what I see happening in America, the divide.
  Just my thoughts ...

Thanks nice to hear something positive! My PvP just called about a refund and she did say that they limited capacity on the August ones and you might see a few cabins open instead of a lot!

unfortunately ppl dont want positive news, even some mods.. they want ppl to be afraid and think nothing will happen till 2021 or beyond.

We sail on the Breeze August 29th.  What is a paused cruise?

I'm sorry to not be much help but I didn't ask as we'd already got what we needed which was to transfer. My interpretation was that this may be a cruise that could potentially be cancelled? but this is in no way a fact. As the agent stated that because it was a 'paused cruise' he could offer either a full refund or a transfer with $600 OBC, which I had thought you were only offered on cancelled cruises?

I'm hoping it means that they are not taking anymore bookings for that sailing.  Does anyone know was a paused cruise means?  Just curious. I've never heard this term before.

We live in Florida and had our August 4-day Liberty cruise cancelled so we booked the Breeze for Sept. and received more OBC and casino fun play than the cost of the whole cruise (deluxe ocean view). I have my doubts that will even go. Maybe our Nov. Legend out of Tampa will go - let's hope. Have a Holland cruise booked for Feb.

 

Florida Covid-19 cases are going up and down right now with over 41,000 cases and almost 1800 deaths. Of course our idiot Governor has stopped county public health departments from releasing their statistics now, so who knows what the real stats are?

Florida covid stats are being released every day at 1130 .. if you lol look at the site new cases are at 500 per day state wide.. looking at this data might give you more insight  if your cruise is going 

than peoples guess or political statement ..
