Carnival Cruise Line has sailed almost 100 cruises and carried 237,000 guests since it resumed operations on 3 July 2021.
Carnival Vista was the first ship to restart service from Port of Galveston in Texas and 10 additional vessels have since begun sailing from six homeports along the east and west coasts of the USA, as well as the Gulf of Mexico. This means that half of the line’s US fleet are now back in service.
“Our first three months back in service has underscored our strong brand loyalty, the best customer base in the cruise industry and our team’s ability to deliver outstanding results and guest service,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “It has been an emotional experience for everyone involved, myself included, as we have resumed operations with a focus on health and safety while providing a positive impact for our guests, team members and the communities we visit.”
Carnival plans to have 17 ships back in service by the end of 2021 and the entire US fleet will be operational by spring 2022. To learn more about the line’s return to service, watch an video update from Duffy here.
