Carnival converts 2022 overseas itineraries to Australian domestic cruises

Carnival Cruise Line has announced it will convert its April, May and June 2022 international itineraries to domestic sailings, in what it says "Recognises ongoing international travel restrictions and provides more opportunities for guests to sail locally and support local tourism."

Carnival Cruise Line has announced it will convert its April, May and June 2022 international itineraries to domestic sailings, in what it says “Recognises ongoing international travel restrictions and provides more opportunities for guests to sail locally and support local tourism.”

With a decision to be made in early 2022 around the ban on cruising in Australian waters and beyond, Carnival Cruise Line will resume cruising in Australia with enhanced health and safety measures developed in conjunction with government authorities, public health experts, local ports of call and the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA).

Carnival says booked guests and travel advisors are now being notified directly of the itinerary changes from International to Domestic cruises and are also encouraged to visit carnival.com.au for more information if their revised itinerary no longer meets their needs.

Carnival’s proposed new itineraries departing Sydney and Brisbane will visit the Great Barrier Reef, the beautiful beaches of the Whitsundays, and Tropical North Queensland’s vibrant rainforests.

Cruises start from $279 per person twin-share for a 3-night ‘Cruise to nowhere’ onboard the Carnival Spirit sailing from home-port Brisbane and scale up to an 8-night cruise departing Sydney onboard the Carnival Splendor to The Great Barrier Reef from $658 per person twin-share.

With new research revealing that 54 per cent of Australians are planning at least one domestic trip to treat themselves, Carnival Cruise Line says the changes they have made will offer guests even more chances to explore our backyard by sea.
 
Carnival Cruise Line recently researched Australians’ fun and holiday habits, revealing that our most fun holiday is a tropical one in a warm destination with sea, sun, and sand (32%).

The research also found that a third of the nation (33%) believes that Queensland would be the most fun state to visit.
