With the extension of the No Sail Order by the CDC, taking a cruise in October has become a lot harder and almost impossible from the U.S.
So are you looking to have a cruise in 2020 and wondering what’s available?
Carnival has announced that all voyages are canceled from U.S. ports for the time being. There are still sailings available as Carnival will keep ships operating from Miami and Port Canaveral for a phased re-introduction of cruising. In the official statement, Carnival said:
Sailings between November 1 and December 31, 2020, from Miami and Port Canaveral have not been canceled. However, guests booked on these sailings may elect to cancel their booking any time before departure.
The first voyage is scheduled for November 2 on Carnival Liberty, while most other voyages are scheduled to depart from the end of December onwards.
The following Carnival ships are scheduled to be cruising from Miami and Port Canaveral in 2020. Do note, that cruises could change due to the developing situation on getting cruises resumed safely.
