Further Cancellations Announced for Two Carnival Cruise Ships

Affiliate Disclaimer

Carnival Cruise Line has extended its pause of operations in Australia impacting two cruise ships into December 2020.

Extended Suspension in Australia

With ongoing travel restrictions in Australia and a range of different limitations affecting international travel in the region, Carnival Cruise Line has now extended its suspension on departures out of Australia through December 2, 2020. The transpacific/Honolulu to Brisbane sailing on October 6 is also cancelled.

The extension impacts the Carnival Spirit and Carnival Splendor, which are both usually based out of Australia. It comes as no surprise really as there is still a huge uncertainty on resuming cruises as the health crisis impacts different countries and regions.
