Carnival Cruise Line has finally detailed the second itinerary impacted due to Carnival Vista’s propulsion issue.
Carnival Vista June 22 Sailing Altered
Carnival Vista is suffering from maximum cruising speed issue and as a result, the cruise line has already altered its current June 15 sailing. The following June 22 cruise from Galveston, Texas has also been affected and after waiting several days Carnival has now detailed the new itinerary which includes canceled ports.
As the June 15 sailing as changed from a 7-day cruise to an 8-day cruise, the Carnival Vista will arrive back at Port of Galveston a day later on June 23. This means the following 7-day voyage will also become an 8-day voyage departing on June 23 and returning on July 1.
Please find below the new itinerary which was sent to guests in a letter:
Sun Galveston, TX 4:00 PM
Mon Fun Day at Sea
Tue Fun Day at Sea
Wed Fun Day at Sea
Thu Costa Maya, Mexico 10:00 AM 7:00 PM
Fri Cozumel, Mexico 7:30 AM 7:00 PM
Sat Fun Day at Sea
Sun Fun Day at Sea
Mon Galveston, TX 8:00 AM
The Carnival cruise ship was originally scheduled to call at Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Belize City, and Cozumel, Mexico along with only three sea days. The extra day at sea will be free with service gratuities included.
Carnival is also providing compensations as expected with an onboard credit of $200 added to the Sail & Sign account and a 50% credit towards a future cruise. Any port fees and taxes of the canceled ports will be refunded to guests along with shore excursions booked through the cruise line.
