Carnival Cruise Line has notified guests of additional cruise cancellations, as it has extended its “hiatus” for all US cruises until March 31, 2021.
In addition, the line also canceled some trips for select ships and certain homeport operations; this is related to specific itineraries and ship dry dock work.
