Carnival Cruise Line made the announcement that it will resume cruises on August 1, 2020, and the response has been overwhelming. Ticket purchases have surged by 600 percent since that announcement was made.
Consumers are primarily focused on locking down reservations and obtaining premium deals, according to travel experts. Many of those who purchased tickets are described as young, healthy, and eager to travel after the Covid-19 lockdowns. The low-priced fares being offered by Carnival also played a part in the increased demand, with the company offering rates as low as $28 per night.
When the COVID-19 crisis began, stories came out regarding what it was like for cruise ship passengers stuck on coronavirus-hit ships. Passengers were forced to quarantine in their rooms and unable to disembark for weeks. A no-sail order was issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on March 14. It was extended on April 9 through July 24.
The ships sailing with Carnival include vessels departing from Galveston, Texas, Miami, and Port Canaveral, Florida. These ships will sail to the Bahamas, as well as to Cozumel, Mexico.
