Every Carnival fan is asking the same question. “When will Carnival Cruises resume?” Below is our 2021 (and beyond) chart showing tentative dates for each Carnival Cruise Ship to resume operations.

Exactly “when” they’ll get the green light depends on a number of factors, all of which are constantly changing, such as the following.

> Covid 19 Rates
> International Travel Bans
> CDC’s “No Sail Order” (CDC cruise info here)
> Travel Industry Trends
> CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) Influence

These are just some of the many factors determining when cruise lines can resume operations.

Carnival is providing tentative dates for ships to be relaunched. We’re assuming this schedule will fluctuate as does our information on coronavirus and its societal impact. The chart below will be updated regularly to reflect any changes. Be sure to save this page (bookmark, pin it, or other) to easily return for the latest updates.
