Cruise News Today — August 8, 2022: MSC Walks Back Pre-Cruise Testing Date, Carnival Ship Dry Dock

Cruise Industry News for Monday, August 8, 2022.

MSC Cruises quietly walked back its date for dropping its pre-cruise testing policy for shorter cruises that were originally intended for August 8, the new date is now August 29. Carnival Cruise Line canceled five cruises on Carnival Paradise in October 2023 for a ship dry dock, guests booked have the option to switch sailings or get a full refund. The travel industry isn’t rebounding as fast as financial experts thought it would because of the 2022 recession reaching an all-time four-decade high, causing consumers to pinch pennies. It’s on track now to rebound in 2024, skipping 2023 entirely.
