Carnival Cruise Line confirms restart dates amid strong demand

The line currently has eight of its ships in operation, with more restarting this autumn

The operator has announced updates to its autumn/winter schedule in 2021 and confirmed that guests will need to present proof of both vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test to check in.

Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy said: “We are very pleased with the progress of our restart, which will grow to 15 ships sailing from seven United States homeports by mid-November. We are making slight adjustments to our timeline to take into account supply chain realities and ensure that our destination and shore excursion offerings can meet the strong demand we are seeing from our guests.”
