| Florida Today

Carnival Cruise Line on Monday canceled its November sailings from Port Canaveral, saying they “will not be feasible,” even if a federal no-sail order is lifted by then.

Cruising has been shut down at Port Canaveral and other U.S. ports since mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Carnival was hoping to resume sailings from Port Canaveral and PortMiami in November, assuming the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention does not extend its no-sail order beyond its current Oct. 31 end date.

But Carnival on Monday announced it will wait until at least December to start sailing again.

The industry first shut down passenger cruises in mid-March amid COVID-19 outbreaks on several ships.

Carnival Cruise Line was the only major cruise company that said it intended to restart limited cruising Nov. 1. All others previously canceled

Sea Cloud Cruises cancels winter Caribbean, plans spring startup

Sea Cloud Cruises canceled its winter Caribbean program and plans to resume sailing with all three ships, including the new Sea Cloud Spirit, in Europe in the spring.

‘In view of the current development of the COVID-19 pandemic, this necessary step is the only way to give our guests and all our sales partners the peace of mind when planning for future travel,’ Managing Director Daniel Schäfer said.

Limited port availability

Besides all Caribbean cruises, itineraries with Central America and the two trans-Atlantic crossings are canceled.

Sea Cloud noted the past months have shown that immigration regulations can change bilaterally on very short notice due to changes in infection rates. ‘Since infection rates are continuing to rise worldwide, almost all the islands in the Caribbean still do not allow ships to enter their territory,’ Schäfer said.

Flight uncertainties

Uncertainties also remain about flight options to the Caribbean, as well as
