Since the vaccine transportation is not equal around the world, as well as because in the very states, under the same flag, the COVID 19 restrictions vary from one state to another, the Carnival Cruise line might be obligated to move their home boarding ports further from US territory.

According to CNBC, ” The cruise ship operator has seen a heightened level of people booking trips during the first quarter, up around 90% from fourth-quarter levels. On top of that, the current bookings for next year are at higher numbers than bookings before the pandemic in 2019.”
“Everybody wants to go away. And I will tell you, the next best thing to actually going away is planning a vacation. And that’s what a lot of people seem to be doing right now,” said David Bernstein, Carnival’s chief financial officer, in a conference call on Wednesday.
“They will drive even more enthusiasm, excitement, and demand around our restore plans with both our brand loyalists and with new recruits,” Carnival CEO Arnold Donald stated in a conference call.
“This summer, it is on track to resume cruise operations with 30% to 50% occupancy on nine ships across six of its brands: AIDA, Costa, P&O Cruises, Cunard, Princess Cruises, and Seabourn.”
“2021 will clearly be a transition year, we expect the environment to remain dynamic over the next 12 months as we roll out our fleet while continuing to adapt to an ever-changing situation,” Donald said.
To add up, the CDC announced new guidelines regarding the “Framework for Conditional Sailing Order (CSO) requiring cruise lines to establish agreements at ports where they intend to operate, implement routine testing of the crew, and develop plans incorporating vaccination strategies to reduce the risk of introduction and spread of COVID-19 by crew and passengers.”
I definitely need a vacation and a break from this madness!
