Carnival Cruise Line has released a statement related to the Centers for Disease Control announcement of a No Sail Order extension.
Carnival Cruise Line Reaction to No Sail Order Extention
On April 9 the Centers for Disease Control announced an extension of its No Sail Order after it first issued on March 14, 2020. Carnival Cruise Line is already on pause after announcing a voluntary suspension of cruise operations from March 14 and extended it through May 11, 2020.
Carnival Cruise Line released the following statement:
“We are aware of the CDC notice published on Thursday. We are evaluating those recommendations and continuing our discussions with industry and government officials. Our existing pause in operations remains in effect through May 11, 2020.
Should our plans change, we will notify guests and travel agents and share information on Carnival.com. We appreciate your patience and remain committed to the health and safety of our guests, crew and communities we serve.”
Carnival stated that it is aware of the new announcement made by the CDC on Thursday and is evaluating the new measured included in that announcement. You can take a look here. The cruise line continues to work with authorities to make sure all measures are always followed and to help protect the thousands of crew members who still remain onboard Carnival cruise ships.
It is a constantly developing situation the cruise industry is now in and depending on if the pandemic can be controlled we could see a further extension on cruises. Most cruise lines have suspended operations until early May and some even longer into Summer.
Carnival Cruise Line will keep guest updated on any changes related to the CDC No Sail Order along with any new impact on booked cruises.
