Carnival Cruise Line announced that it is adjusting certain protocols to reflect the lifting of CDC requirements for the US cruise industry.

Carnival Cruise Line remains committed to the health and safety of its guests, crew and the communities it serves. These changes will be made in phases, with the first of these updates effective on Thursday, August 4, 2022, and focused on short cruise itineraries of 5 nights or less.

More changes will be announced shortly, and all changes are subject to any requirements of destinations on the itinerary.

Effective for embarkations on or after Thursday, August 4:

  • No pre-cruise testing for fully vaccinated guests booked on cruises with itineraries 5 nights or less.
  • Pre-cruise testing for itineraries 6 nights or longer can be conducted three (3) days before departure.
  • There will be no in-terminal testing for unvaccinated guests on day of departure, but all unvaccinated guests ages 2 and older must provide proof of a negative result of a lab-administered or supervised self-administered antigen COVID test taken within three (3) days before embarkation.

Guests should continue to carefully review all pre-cruise communications.

Carnival Cruise Line, part of Carnival Corporation & plc, is proud to be known as America’s Cruise Line. 

Since its founding in 1972, Carnival has continually revolutionized the cruise sector, making a cruise vacation an affordable and popular option for millions of guests.

Carnival operates from 14 U.S. homeports and employs more than 40,000 team members representing 120 nationalities.

Carnival’s newest ship, Mardi Gras, featuring the first roller coaster at sea, is the first cruise ship in the Americas powered by eco-friendly Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). 

Carnival returns to Australia in October 2022 and will welcome four additional ships over the next two years, including Carnival Celebration, which arrives to Miami in November to close out Carnival’s 50th birthday festivities.
