We’re ferry excited to announce Carnival Cruises are returning!
If you’ve been feeling a little high and dry after the ‘no sail’ order of 2020, it’s time to whip out those flip flops and Hawaiian shirts as Carnival Cruises has just announced they will be open for sailing once again!
As of this week, it was confirmed that Carnival Cruises including Princess, Holland America, Alaskan, and other affiliated cruise lines are expected to return to service from the U.S. with Alaska itineraries starting this July.
This means those of you with travel credits, vouchers, and refunds from previously cancelled Alaskan cruises, now is the time to confidently reschedule and possibly set sail!
Wondering about the safety?
While Carnival directors have been diligent to ensure cruise guidelines follow CDC recommendations, each of the cruise lines will provide guests with specific, detailed information in advance about protocols pertaining to boarding, departure, and your cruise itinerary.
Important note: Alaska cruises are available only for guests who have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination. Crew vaccinations will be in accordance with CDC guidelines as well.
