While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has cleared cruise ships to return to operation in U.S. waters, Carnival Corp. said this week that it would extend its “pause” of North American cruise brands through the end of the year.

Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corp., said in a written statement that the company is working with the CDC and other public health authorities and medical experts to create a plan for the eventual restart of cruising in North America.
“With their collective guidance, we have developed and continue to update our enhanced health and safety protocols that are in the best interest of our guests, crew and overall public health,” he said. “Whenever we restart our cruise operations in the U.S., we certainly look forward to welcoming our guests on board.”
