Carnival Corporation to Resume U.S. Operation in July
Carnival Corporation’s three brands are expected to return to service in the United States from July, all offering Alaska sailings departing directly from Seattle.
Based on recent guidance from the United States Centres for Disease & Prevention (CDC) and close collaboration with Alaskan officials, Princess Cruises, Holland America Line and Carnival Cruise Line plan to resume guest cruise operations for a partial season in Alaska.
These Alaska cruises are available for guests who have received their final dose of an approved Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination.
Plans for these itineraries to fulfil obligations under the Passenger Vessel Services Act (PVSA) are expected to be approved.
Princess Cruises, Holland America Line and Carnival Cruise Line are each continuing the return-to-cruising preparation already underway.
Princess Cruises will resume operations in Alaska starting on July 25th, with trips running until September 26th, with seven-day cruises onboard Majestic Princess, a MedallionClass ship.
Its cruises will visit signature ports, glaciers and attractions in Alaska including Glacier Bay National Park, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.
Holland America Line will resume its cruise operations to Alaska with seven-day itineraries aboard Nieuw Amsterdam.
The first cruise for the brand is scheduled to depart July 24th, with 11 Saturday departures planned to operate through to October 2nd.
