Health and Sailing Update

Carnival’s Commitment to Guest and Crew Health

  • Our highest responsibility and our top priorities are compliance, environmental protection and the health, well-being and safety of our guests, the communities we visit and our crew.
  • We will resume cruising when society is ready and we will do so with enhanced health measures developed in conjunction with government health authorities, public health experts, local ports and the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).
  • As our understanding of COVID-19 is still evolving, we are working closely with the best minds in medical science, public health, and infectious disease control to understand the challenges posed by the virus and how best to mitigate its spread.
  • Our Cruise Health program elevates our existing practices to even greater levels to give consumers confidence and peace of mind when going on a cruise vacation with us.
  • Our operational protocols are being designed to be flexible and responsive to quickly adapt to the latest learnings as necessary.
  • One of Carnival Corporation’s nine cruise line brands — Germany-based AIDA Cruises — is scheduled in August to re-start sailings in Europe. The enhanced health and safety protocols in place at AIDA have been developed in coordination with medical and scientific experts, and national and global authorities.
  • As we look forward to our own return to cruising, we will build a set of operational protocols relying on best practices, best advice, and best outcomes. We will communicate those details as we get closer to our start date, but the foundational elements of the program are outlined below.
