Carnival Fascination cruises cancelled till February 2018 to cooperate with FEMA hurricane efforts

 Thursday, October 12, 2017 


carnival-cruiseCarnival Cruise Line has cancelled all departures of Carnival Fascination till the end of January 2018 so that the cruise vessel might be utilized for hurricane relief workers in the Caribbean.


The cruise vessel would be chartered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) for about four months in a last-minute deal.


The cruise line posted on its official website that earlier this week, they had communicated that they were ready to resume their operations from San Juan on Carnival Fascination and their first cruise would be departing this Sunday. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) mentioned that they had asked the Caribbean Cruise Line to assist the relief and rebuilding efforts.


It specified that Carnival Fascination has specially been chartered to offer housing for relief workers in the U.S. Virgin Islands.


This implies that the ship’s departures from 15th October 2017 through January 28, 2018 would all be cancelled. Carnival Fascination would be returning to year-round service from San Juan commencing from 18th February 2018. During the period between the charter and the next scheduled cruise, Carnival Fascination would be sent for its scheduled dry dock (between 31st January and 17th February 2018) in the Grand Bahama shipyard to receive fresh features including Blue Iguana Cantina and Guy’s Burger Joint.


Passengers booked on the cancelled cruise would be receiving a refund of their cruise fares and also any pre-purchased products.


Carnival Cruise Line has also offered an apology for the multiple cancellations. Fascination would actually be the second cruise ship chartered by FEMA for relief efforts.
