Carnival Cruise Line Will Focus on Domestic Sailings in Australia

Two Carnival cruise ships that are based down under will shift to more domestic cruise offerings rather than international cruises.

Cruises sailing to nowhere will no longer be available from 2016. The U.S Customs has banned all cruise lines from sailing the short voyages.

The new rule that will begin at the start of 2016 will ban cruise ships from sailing to nowhere from American based ports. Often vessels offer short cruises that sail from a home port out to the open ocean and then sail back. these itineraries have been popular with cruisers wanting a quick getaway.

One of the main cruise ships affected by the new rule is Carnival Cruise Line’s upcoming Carnival Vista. The new ship was originally schedule to set sail on a 3-day cruise to nowhere from New York in 2016. The cruise line has now cancelled that itinerary and offered compensation to people who have already booked that cruise.

Other major cruise ships forced to make changes are the Norwegian Breakaway and Anthem of the Seas. Both ships have scheduled cruises to nowhere during 2016 but the cruise lines have made alternative itineraries.

Due to the new rule by U.S. Customs all ships will have to call at least one foreign port of call. This new ban only affects American based ports. Other ports around the world can still offer cruises to nowhere.
