So the new order will be through November 1, 2021, but with some requirements to make sure cruise lines can resume operations from the U.S. safely. The largest cruise line that operates out of the U.S. is Carnival Cruise Line and now the Miami-based cruise line has responded to the new CDC order that was announced on October 30, 2020.

With guests, travel agents, and even cruise professional itching to cruising now that the No-Sail order is ending, Carnival Cruise Line has asked for patience as it reviews the new order details. The cruise line stated:

“Carnival Cruise Line will continue to work with the CDC on an eventual return to guest cruise operations. We are evaluating the CDC’s new order that sets out the conditions under which cruising can resume, but there are a significant number of requirements that must be evaluated in the context of our plans to resume operations. We ask our guests, travel advisors and community and destination partners for their patience as we complete our review. We are committed to communicating more details as soon as possible.”

Carnival Cruise Line Has Lot’s To Get On With

Carnival Cruise Line now needs to push forward and deal with a number of things to safely resume cruises. New health measures still need to be implemented with parent company Carnival Corpo working with health experts on this front.

Arrangements will have to be made on getting crew members back to the ship or ships that will kick start sailings. That won’t be easy with all the travel restrictions around the world. Also, there’s a lot of behind the scenes details and procedures that need to be ironed out to make sure guests and crew do remain safe during a Carnival cruise.
