Carnival Cruise Line has announced an extension of its pause in operations in Australia through to and including 15 November, 2021.

While this relates only to Carnival Cruise Lines only, not other Carnival Corporation operations in Australia, in this case, P&O Australia, the question is whether this pause suggests that P&O Australia may follow suite, having already announced its pause until 17 September and cancelling of a selection of cruises between 18 September and 31 December 2021?

Carnival Cruise Lines said agents who have clients booked on a Carnival Splendor cruise impacted by this change will be communicated with shortly, with agent commissions protected on the original fully paid booking cancelled by Carnival and on the final fully paid rebooking when a future cruise credit is redeemed on an active sailing.
