Got my official Guest Advisory for my July Cruise

It looks like they plan to start in July with only 4 ships Vista & Breeze out of Galveston and Horizon out of Miami and Miracle out of Seattle.. last rumor I had heard was only Galveston and Miami.

It looks as though my family and I will be on one of the very first to set sail (July 19th) depending on what the kid's situation is since he can't get a vaccine.. I am cautiously excited.


While we continue to work toward a July restart, it will be focused on four ships:

Carnival Vista from Galveston, beginning July 3. Carnival Horizon out of Miami, beginning July 4 (pending clarification on whether cruises longer than 7 days will be permitted. If not, Carnival Horizon 6 and 8-day itineraries, after and including July 10, will be modified to 7-day cruises and we will let you know of the revised itinerary. Note: The July 4th cruise will remain a 6-day voyage). Carnival Breeze out of Galveston beginning July 15. Carnival Miracle, out of Seattle, beginning July 27, assuming Carnival Freedom’s itineraries to Alaska (pending approval from U.S. and Canadian authorities on a solution to allow our Alaska cruises to operate).

We recognize there is still some uncertainty in our plans to operate these voyages. Guests booked on these sailings who wish to make alternate summer vacation plans, may cancel without penalty by May 31, 2021, and receive a full refund. Please note you will not be eligible for any retroactive compensation should these sailings eventually cancel.

Regrettably, the following embarkations have been canceled as we are unable to ramp-up our crew for the balance of our fleet given the necessary timeline for resuming guest operations:

July 1 through and including July 10 − Carnival Breeze (Galveston). July 1 through and including July 30 −­­ Carnival Conquest and Sunrise (Miami), Dream (Galveston), Ecstasy (Jacksonville), Glory (New Orleans) Elation, Liberty and Mardi Gras (Port Canaveral), Panorama (Long Beach), Pride (Baltimore), Sensation (Mobile) and Sunshine (Charleston).

Due to a ship deployment change, the following embarkations are also canceled:

July 2 through and including September 20 – Carnival Miracle (Long Beach). The ship will be repositioning to Seattle to operate Alaska cruises this summer, pending approval from authorities.

At least you received an update. Some on the Jun Bahamian or St. Maarten haven't received any notes yet. Its a tenuous situation. Hope it all comes together from US port in July.

I know, a friend of ours is waiting on their notice on their June Bahamian trip, but I bet now that this has come out, notices will be following.

Certainly hope that this happens as scheduled!

Me too Pinkie! I am still cautiously optimistic about it.. I think I will be until I am on board and we see Galveston in the rear-view.

Well, you have the states of Florida, Alaska, and Texas fighting for you in court today, seeking an injunction against the CDC. Here's hoping the outcome will swing things in your favor.

This must be stressful, a lot of things are changing recently. Hopefully it goes as planned.

Really like to see things start moving out of Galveston.

Not much to say and wait.....
