Previously Carnival canceled sailings through 2020 except for some sailing from Port Miami and Port Canaveral. Following the most recent CDC announcement and CLIA’s announcement to suspend sailings through 2020, Carnival Cruise Line canceled those cruises, too.
As the cruise industry continues to carefully evaluate the Framework for Resuming Cruise Ship Operations Order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has announced an extension of the voluntary pause in U.S. operations through December 31, 2020. Consequently, all Port Miami and Port Canaveral voyages for December 2020 will be canceled.Carnival
Carnival’s cancellation policies for the Port Miami and Port Canaveral cancellations remain the same. Guests may choose to receive a 100% future cruise credit plus up to $600 per stateroom onboard credit or request a 100% refund.
As always, there is some fine print in the policy. First, the amount of onboard credit is determined by the length of the cruise which was canceled. Something else to be aware of is the expiration and sail by dates of the future cruise credit and when the window for requesting a refund.
Important Dates for Port Miami and Port Canaveral Cancellations:
- May 31, 2021: Deadline to book your next cruise using FCC
- May 30, 2021: Last day to request a refund
- April, 2023: Deadline (sail by) to use FCC
