Carnival Cruise Line has informed guests booked on an upcoming sailing of the Carnival Vista of an itinerary change due to a technical issue

Carnival Vista Technical Issue

Carnival Vista is suffering from a technical issue which is related to the ship’s maximum cruising speed. As a result, the cruise line has sent out emails to guests booked on the upcoming June 15 sailing of an itinerary change.

The Carnival cruise ship which is departing its homeport in Galveston, Texas was originally scheduled to call at Montego Bay, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman and finally Cozumel, Mexico during its 7-day Western Caribbean cruise.

The ship will now be sailing an alternative itinerary with port replacements as follows:

  • Sat, June 15: Galveston, Texas (Departure at 4:00 PM)
  • Sun, June 16: Fun Day at Sea
  • Mon, June 17: Fun Day at Sea
  • Tues, June 18: Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan (10:00 am – 6:00 PM)
  • Wed, June 19: Costa Maya, Mexico (8:00 AM- 5:00 PM)
  • Thu, June 20: Cozumel, Mexico (7:00 AM – 4:00 PM)
  • Fri, June 21: Last Sea Day
  • Sat, June 22: Galveston, Texas (Arrival at 7:30 AM)

Carnival has apologized to guests for the unexpected change and compensation is being offered. Guests will receive a $50 onboard credit per person which will automatically be added to the Sail & Sign account. Guests will also receive a 25% future cruise credit which must be used on a sailing taking place before December 12, 2020.

Passengers may also cancel their cruise and the cruise line will provide a full refund towards a future cruise and any pre-purchased tours booked through the cruise line will also be refunded.
