With ongoing uncertainty in Australia, Carnival Cruise Line has cancelled more sailings for one of its ships. This follows the further suspension the cruise line announced for the region just last week!

Carnival Cruise Line Cancels More Sailings

Carnival Cruise Line has extended its pause of operations out of Australia with further cancellations for one of its vessels. Carnival Splendor cruises departing between March 25, 2021, and April 19 will no longer take place. Sailings for the Carnival Spirit remain suspended through May 16, 2021.

The cruise line said in a released statement:

We will resume cruising in Australia when the time is right and will do so with enhanced health and safety measures developed in conjunction with government authorities, public health experts, local ports of call and the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

Thank you for your understanding and support, we look forward to warmly welcoming you back on board as soon as possible.

Last week Cruise Hive reported on the previous cancellation of ships down under. Carnival Splendor sailings were suspended through March 17, 2021, and Carnival Spirit sailings have not been changed as they remain on hold through May 16, 2021.

The cruise line is communicating with guests who are impacted and offering compensation options. Guests can receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit if booked by May 31, 2021, for sailing by 30 April 2023. A full refund can also be requested if guests no longer want to go ahead with their vacation in the future.
