Despite the current pandemic, Carnival Cruise Lines has decided to resume some of its routes servicing North America this August. 

Carnival Cruise Lines released a statement on its website saying 8 of its ships will be cruising at the beginning of August.

The scheduled ships are: the Carnival Dream, Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista departing from Galveston, Texas; the Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic and Carnival Sensation leaving from Miami; and leaving from Port Canaveral will be the Carnival Breeze and Carnival Elation. 

All cruises servicing North America through July 31st have been canceled following an announcement in mid-April by Carnival than the cancellation period will last through June 27th. 

Carnival Spirit Alaskan cruises leaving from Seattle are going to be canceled as well as the Carnival Spirit Vancouver-Honolulu cruise which was scheduled to depart on September 25th and the Honolulu-Brisbane cruise which was scheduled to depart on October 6th. The Carnival Splendor cruises leaving from Australia between June 19th to August 31st are also canceled. 

The decision to cancel routes comes after an announcement by Congress saying they will be investigating Carnival Corp. for how it handled COVID-19 cases on ships.

According to Carnival, all impacted guests and travel advisors will be notified via email with options to get a travel credit or a full refund.
