Carnivals Commitment – Health & Sailing


It’s been a year of seismic change. And the change will continue. That’s why we are prepared to continue to evolve our practices to promote public health.
As you’ve adapted to this new normal, we want to say, “Thanks for your patience.” And we’re right there with you, as we evaluate every part of the Carnival experience to ensure the health and safety of our guests, crew, and the communities we visit.

The goal of our Cruise Health program is simple: to give you peace of mind when cruising with us so you can focus on the fun. We’re working with government health authorities, public health experts, local ports and the Cruise Lines International Association to create these measures. And to make sure we’re constantly adapting to best practices, we continue our conversations with the best minds in science. The goal will be effective protocols and resources to continue to take care of the needs of our guests, crew and stakeholders.

As we look forward to the eventual resumption of cruising, we’ll continue to not only adapt with the world, but lead the industry with a first class commitment to health. Check out our framework below, and watch this page for more details when the time is right. We can’t wait to cruise with you soon.
