Carnival Cruise Line will start cruises again in August

On Monday morning, Carnival Cruise Line announced that it will not resume operations until August.

The company says it will take a "measured approach" towards bringing sailings back, phasing in some cruises starting in August.

Between now and then, the company said it will continue to identify and implement additional protocols so that guests can be safely welcomed back.

If you have a cruise book through August that has been affected by the cancellations, you or your travel agent will receive an email. Only those impacted will receive an email. Instructions have been sent out on what to do to claim your cancellation offer or refund.

"We want to get back to cruising as soon as we can, and we'll be here ready for your return. We continue to thank our guests and Travel Agent Partners for your support," Carnival Cruise Line said in a statement.
