Carnival Cruise Line Sees Its Highest Booking Week Ever as It Finds Another Way to Celebrate Its 50th Birthday!

April 4, 2022

Carnival Cruise Line said today that the one-week period of March 28-April 3 was its busiest booking week in the company’s history, showing a double-digit increase from the previous record seven-day booking total.

With 22 of its 23 ships back in guest operations across all its year-round U.S. homeports, Carnival has led the industry in terms of restart and customer demand. Its final ship, Carnival Splendor, will return to service from Seattle on May 2, and then Carnival will welcome its newest ship, Carnival Celebration, to PortMiami in November. By year-end 2022, Carnival will have more capacity sailing (as measured by ALBDs – available lower berth days) than it was sailing in 2019. And then in 2023, Carnival will put into service another new Excel-class ship, Carnival Jubilee from Galveston.

“The excitement of the industry’s restart, our successful return of our entire fleet, the guest reaction to Mardi Gras, our loyal guest response to our 50th birthday this year, the support of our travel advisor partners — and of course, the amazing work of our Carnival team — have all contributed to the strong demand we are seeing, and this record-breaking booking week,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

Duffy added that all sales channels, including Carnival.com, travel advisors, the Carnival guest contact center and personal vacation planners all contributed to the record-breaking results. With the restart of cruising in Australia now set, Carnival is finalizing plans for its return in Australia and will be announcing those details soon.

Very cool

I was on this cruise. There were no signs on our elevators but there were orange “biohazard” bags outside a few cabins on our deck. We never showed any signs of having Covid. I wish we had all the real facts.

Yeah, that would be nice for a change.

Good luck with that

Mebbe this part of the thread belongs in "the changes we'd like to see thread"...or start a new one entitled "wishful thinking"..don't start me off about what cruiselines do or fail to do when it comes to pumping up the bookings. And since the CDC's new rating system has gone into effect, has any cruise ship been taken out of service because of covid? I don't think so. Clearly, those breakthrough cases affecting fully vaccinated and negatively tested folks are something NOBODY wants to investigate too closely...at least not publicly. Just keep building those monsters!!!
