Carnival, along with everyone else who is paying attention to what is going on in this country, knows there is no chance any cruise is going to sail for a long time from the US. As others have stated, cancelling cruises now would result in the possibility of a large number of passengers requesting refunds, which would not help their current fragile financial condition.  

Thank you for insinuating I have no idea what’s going on in this country. Living under a rock, I would have had no idea without your post. What would I do without you?!

I didn’t insinuate you didn’t know what was going on. You said you were frustrated by Carnival not doing anything, which you shouldn’t be since you seem to know as well as I do your cruise in January isn’t going to happen.

We did when our Bermuda cruise went to the Bahamas because of a hurricane that our captain said impacted Bermuda and left flooding and power outages there. Actually the hurricane never touched Bermuda and we received 25% off another cruise if booked and sailed within a year. We were very unhappy about this decision because of the higher cost to go to Bermuda vs. Bahamas. This was our last cruise with Carnival as we were misled and overcharged. We will be sailing at least 1 more time with them to use up our credit card points, and that will probably be the last.

 

I understand. 

 

I do think that a 'missed port' situation is somewhat different than a totally compromised cruise situation.  There have been many occasions where weather has rerouted an Eastern Caribbean into a Western, for example.  In those cases, 25% comp would be about the norm.  Other cruise lines would likely do about the same.  I was trying to give an extreme example of where an 8 day Southern route was replaced by multiple back and forth sailings to Nassau to make up the 8 day vacation and it called 'even'.  

 

Frankly, Carnival has actually been quite good during the pandemic with the exception of holding out on cancellations until all the final payments are required.

Just out of curiosity, which cruise to Bermuda got re-routed on you?  It seems strange that Carnival (or any cruise line) would miss the port intentionally for no reason.

I wonder how long the 6-night Horizon from Miami will stay up. Carnival alternates the eight and six night cruises. 

Might still be a go. They can keep it, and just spend a extra turn around day and add a 7 day cruise.

Again the cdc recent guidelines dont expire until Nov 1, 2021 that say no cruise over 7 days. I personally wouldnt book even late fall a 8 day.

 

Telling people to book a 8 day next fall just because they can when cdc you know has guidelines in place otherwise ... 

Wouldn't late fall start on Nov 1, 2021, which is about halfway through the 3 months?  Since the announcement about the positivity of the vaccine trials today and it's positive impact on the stock's of the big three, the Nov 1 date could possibly get moved up.

I've said so on other posts that cdc date could be moved up or extended. No one knows.

 

The post you quoted I was just saying personally I wouldnt book a 8 day, but someone posted 8 day cruises have been removed. 

 

And I guess to me November is winter not fall, but that's semantics. We had 3 nights end of october where it went down to freezing, we hit records. 

 

I have 2 b2bs early 2022, but they were booked before this came out. Who knows how fast covid will be under control

Waiting to see what happens.  We are supposed to be on 8 day Horizon and then my Mom and I are supposed to stay on ship for the next weeks 6 day.  Not looking real good at this point.  Glad I have not bought airline tickets yet

 

In order to generate extra revenue, Carnival could turn them into two 7 day sailings, or it could be a single 7 and leave the six day alone, who knows?  Regarding airfare, certain airlines, like American are waiving change fees.  You only have to fly by Dec 31, 2021.

I do not see any cruises out of Fort Lauderdale, am I missing something?

When I search I see Freedom out of Miami and eventually Galveston. I wish it was Fort Lauderdale. 

I use a popular online travel site that specializes primarily in cruises to do my searches.  That's where the information came from

Just verified on Carnival's website that it is indeed Miami.  But there are two different 8 day itineraries and you can sail out of Miami just as easily as Fort Lauderdale and fly into either city

It appears all US sailings of longer than 7 days through October are no longer listed on the website for booking. That would fit the timeline of the CDC order.  With the additional time needed for testing before boarding disembarking, staggered boarding / disembarking times, additional cleaning, etc, they may no longer have departures on the same day the ships return. The 6 and 8 day alternating itineraries may become all 6 days with an extra day between each sailing.
