Can't see cruises happening in August. Optimistic date for sure but still much more has to happen, safety wise, before any travel can be had.

Another slip, meaning most likely other lines will probably be slipping schedules too. Although small American flagged lines with passenger loading of

There's a whole lot of specifics missing in that article. I learned a long time ago to consider the source. Unlikely that e-mag would say much that's critical or negative. For me, I wouldn't mind all that much wearing a mask where appropriate, or even gloves..and we fully intend to bring a bunch of sanitizer or even spray disinfectant...but I draw the line at the MD's hall pass...hopefully, somebody would realize that's blatant age discrimination. Besides, we're old enough to decide what's an acceptable level of risk. What I want to know is what happens if even ONE person on board comes down with it...

Still hoping October will bring cruising to a safe adventure. That is my selfish desire. You know Carnival won't be able to sail until all cruise lines are open. The article is much ado about nothing... just another bash at Carnival. On another day it could be a bash against RCL.

As many are asking what ships are sailing in August and from where, here is the information

Beginning August 1, we plan to resume cruises on the following ships:

Miami: Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation

Port Canaveral: Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation

Galveston: Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista

Other than the above referenced service from Miami, Port Canaveral and Galveston, all other North American and Australian homeport cruises will be cancelled through August 31.

All Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises from Seattle will be cancelled, as well as the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise on September 25 and the Honolulu-Brisbane transpacific cruise on October 6.

All Carnival Splendor cruises in Australia from June 19 to August 31 will be cancelled.

I will be on the first cruise from Miami on Carnival Horizon and then on other ships after that from Port Canaveral
and Galveston

It would be brilliant to see you and again I am so so sorry to anyone whose family vacation has been canceled.

I truly hope you will be book again and have the FUN you so deserve.

ABSOLUTELY GRAND!!! THANKYOU AUNTIE.. we have one on NCL in Nov out of NOLA, then 3 out of GALVESTON on CCL...then another out of NOLA...from what I see...NO MENTION OF dr's notes!!!!!

The big question Carnival needs to address to us, not just they are sailing BUT the word HOW. How are you going to embark/dis embark, how is the elevators going to be loaded. how are or where are you going to sit/eat in mdr, how are the shows going to be viewed, how many in a bar, how are the shuttles going to be loaded coming to the ship, face mask policy, abandon ship drill, pool policy., instead of not telling us then get on board. They need to let us know before we board as to how the trip will be, not get on board and find out we are on a "military style" controlled ship, being dictated to do this and that. We got one scheduled august 29, and we are seriously considering cancelling if we dont know what is in store for us. We know the cruises will not be like "the good ole days".

A lot of uncertainty. Not gonna be an easy solution other than having a vaccine or at least one that makes the current virus mild. Waiting game.

At least they are taking a graduated approach to trying to go back to the new normal.
