Carnival Cruise Line Cancels More Sailings Due to Australia Ban

Carnival Cruise Line in Australia has announced a further extension on its pause of operations in Australia due to a further ban by the country.

Carnival cruise ship which has an altered itinerary due to a propulsion issue is also having a delayed disembarkation and embarkation process.

Carnival Vista Delay Expected

Carnival Cruise Line has informed guests booked for the June 15 Carnival Vista sailing out of Galveston of a delayed embarkation process. Guests are being asked to delay their arrival to the terminal by one hour. So for guests scheduled to arrive at 12:30 PM would now be arriving at 1:30 PM and so on.

The reason for the delay is due to U.S. Customs and Border Protection carrying out more detailed checks on guests disembarking the cruise ship today at the end of its June 8 seven-day Western Caribbean cruise.

The delay will impact guests ending the current cruise and all type guests for the next voyage including Diamond, Platinum, Faster to the Fun and Suite passengers. Carnival has stated that anyone who arrives early will be asked to check in their luggage and then enjoy a visit to The Strand Historic District nearby.

This impact the Carnival Vista even further after its June 15 sailing from Port of Galveston has already been altered due to a propulsion issue. Just days ago we posted about the itinerary being altered with Mahogany Bay in Isla Roatan and Costa Maya in Mexico replacing Jamaica and Grand Cayman due to the ship having an issue with its maximum cruising speed. However, the cruise line is making repairs which should not impact the next sailing on June 22.

Update: The itinerary has now been changed even further. Please read our latest post here.

Carnival has offered guests booked for the June 15 voyage compensation including $50 onboard credit and 25% future cruise credit. Even though Carnival is making up for the technical issue the embarkation delay won’t go down well with guests who are already dealing with the port of calls they weren’t expecting.
