Carnival Cruise Line Confirms First Sailing For Mardi Gras; Announces More 
                           Ships Returning In August 
MIAMI, June 10, 2021 -- Carnival Cruise Line today laid out plans for its next 
wave of the summer restart of guest operations, including the first cruise 
for Mardi Gras  and the return of additional ships in August.  Highlights of 
the plan include: 
  * Mardi Gras will start operating her seven-day cruises from Port Canaveral 
    on Saturday, July 31, with pre-inaugural sailings to the eastern and 
    western Caribbean. 
  * Carnival Magic will return from her dry dock - and with her new hull design 
    - and homeport from Port Canaveral where she will pick up four- and 
    five-day cruises to The Bahamas and Caribbean that were previously 
    scheduled for Carnival Elation, effective Aug. 7 through Oct. 7. Guests 
    already booked on Carnival Elation will be re-accommodated on Carnival 
    Magic, and because she is a larger ship, additional stateroom inventory is 
    being made available on and other sales channels. Carnival 
    Magic will also operate three new six-day cruises and one new eight-day 
    cruise from Port Canaveral between Oct. 11-31. 
  * Carnival Sunrise will enter service from Miami, effective Aug. 14, sailing 
    four- and five-day cruises to The Bahamas and Caribbean. 
  * Carnival Panorama will enter service from Long Beach on Aug. 21, sailing 
    her seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises. 
  * Carnival Vista and Breeze (from Galveston), Carnival Horizon (from Miami) 
    and Carnival Miracle (from Seattle to Alaska) will continue with their 
    cruises through August that are part of the line's restart plans in July. 
  * Given the above plans, Carnival has extended its pause for other ships 
    through Aug. 31, 2021, as follows: Carnival Pride (Baltimore), Carnival 
    Sunshine (Charleston), Carnival Dream (Galveston), Carnival Ecstasy 
    (Jacksonville), Carnival Liberty (Port Canaveral), Carnival Conquest 
    (Miami), Carnival Sensation (Mobile) and Carnival Glory (New Orleans). 
  * Guests and travel agents are being advised of the August schedule plans and 
    Carnival will be providing more details directly to them next week on 
    guidelines and protocols. Carnival plans to operate these August sailings 
    with vaccinated guests. 
"We are very excited to finally welcome guests on Mardi Gras," said Christine 
Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  "With our desire to preserve summer 
vacations for our Mardi Gras guests, we are going to find a later date to 
formally christen her so that we can operate these pre-inaugural sailings just 
as soon as we can." 
Duffy also noted that Carnival intends to expand its initial restart from 
Florida, Texas and Washington to California, with the return of Carnival 
Panorama from Long Beach in late August.  "We are excited to resume our West 
Coast operations and intend to sail Carnival Panorama with vaccinated guests 
starting August 21.  We are working with state and local officials to finalize 
the necessary plans," Duffy said. 
Carnival will continue to ramp up more ships and homeports in September and 
beyond, bringing hundreds of crew on board each week to be vaccinated, complete 
CDC-mandated quarantine and then begin work to prepare for guests and the 
return to guest operations. 
"Our focus remains on the health and safety of our guests, crew and the 
communities we serve and visit," said Duffy.  "We are taking a deliberate 
approach so we can execute with excellence and deliver a fun experience to our 
guests, who have been tremendously patient and supportive throughout this
