Carnival Cruise Line completed a cross-country transfer in Panama
On June 12, 2020, the Carnival Cruise Line completed a cross-country transfer in Panama as it expected to complete the repatriation of over 26,000 crew members in the coming weeks. The cruise line worked closely with key Panamanian officials to efficiently transfer 91 crew members across the country. Crew members were transferred from the 'Carnival Miracle' across the isthmus of Panama to join the 'Carnival Glory' which was waiting on the opposite side of the country. Carnival Cruises expressed the most sincere appreciation and thanks to many government agencies, local maritime partners and private operators for their role in making this cross-country transfer happen. The 'Carnival Miracle' was located on Panama’s Pacific coast and the bus journey for the crew took around 90 minutes to join the 'Carnival Glory' located on the Atlantic side which will also be taking on crew members from other ships in the fleet before sailing to Curacao. Then, the crew will be able to finally head home on arranged charter and commercial flights. It has been a complex process for Carnival which has repatriated almost 20,000 crew members from 27 ships. The cruise line expects to complete the complex effort in the coming weeks with more than 26,000 crew members to more than 100 nations. Carnival is planning on resuming cruises with eight ships from Aug 1 but this does still depend on the developing situation. Other ships in the fleet were either involved in repatriation efforts or in a cold lay-up until the sailings resume.
Cruise ship unsure about final port
Passengers on the 'Carnival Miracle' were unsure of where or when they will be able to disembark from their current vacation. The ship was planned to dock in Cabo San Lucas on March 16, but will skip that port and continue on towards California. The 14-day cruise was originally to terminate in San Francisco on March 19t but that has changed. The ship now hoped to terminate and disembark on March 18 in Southern California, although the exact port had yet to be determined.
