Carnival Corporation began operating its eight cruise ship brands with health restrictions.
Miami, TechnoBusiness Travel ● Carnival Corporation & Plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL, NYSE: CUK), the world’s largest shipping company group headquartered in Miami, Florida, said it would continue to build momentum after not sailing for more than a year due to the pandemic.
Through its eight brands, including Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn, AIDA Cruises, Costa Cruises, Cunard, and P&O Cruises, Carnival Corporation will begin deploying 54 cruise ships by the end of 2021.
The cruise ships will carry travelers across waters in the United States, Central America, Europe, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and Antarctica, although with a maximum of 75% of passenger capacity in order to comply with health protocols.
Carnival Corporation Chief Communications Officer Roger Frizzell in a company briefing in Miami on Tuesday (20/7) said that it was a follow-up cruise after some brands had started operating their cruise ships since last March.
“With strong cruising demand, we look forward to serving Travelers using the additional ships announced across our eight brands,” he said. “This marks an important milestone for our company and all those who rely on the economic impact of shipping.”
Although operating, Frizzell stressed that Carnival Corporation still puts the safety and health of travelers and cruise ship crews first. Carnival Corporation is also working with global health authorities on this.●
