Carnival Corp brands revise cruise restart dates

Three Carnival Corporation cruise lines have released details of rescheduled restart dates – along with further cancellations.

Princess Cruises said Island Princess will now return to service with Caribbean cruises in spring 2022.

Diamond Princess will also return to service in spring 2022 with a season of Japan sailings.

They join eight MedallionClass ships which have returned to service or are scheduled to restart by November 28, 2021.

As a result of these changes, Princess Cruises is cancelling its 2021-2022 South America & Antarctica programme, and its 2022 World Cruise along with two December 2021 Island Princess cruises.

Holland America Line has announced return-to-service dates in May 2022 for Volendam and Zaandam.

The ships will join Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Rotterdam and Zuiderdam, which have returned to service or are set to restart cruising by November 2021.

The new start dates mean the Grand World Voyage and Grand South America and Antarctica Voyage will not operate in 2022 and will resume in 2023.

Seabourn said that Seabourn Sojourn will now restart in time for the summer season in the Mediterranean on June 6, 2022.

This means the brand is cancelling the 2022 145-day World Cruise on Seabourn Sojourn, which was originally scheduled to depart on January 11, 2022 from Los Angeles.

The 2024 World Cruise itinerary will replicate the 2022 World Cruise, and will be available for booking in October 2021.
