Let’s talk about cruise news for the week

It was another big week in cruise news, and we’ve got all the details. We are happy to say that there are a lot of good things happening in the cruise world. From Royal Caribbean’s new perk, to more cruise lines starting up in Europe, today, we’re updating you on the latest cruise news. Here’s a sample of what to expect from this weeks cruise news podcast.

Carnival on track

Carnival Corporation is still on track to resume cruises in the U.S. on Dec. 1 after a favorable ruling from a federal judge Wednesday. The company, on probation since 2017 after pleading guilty to dumping oil into the ocean for several years, will have to attest to the environmental protection status of each of the company’s cruise ships 30 days before they reenter U.S. waters to restart cruises, according to the order from U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of Florida Patricia Seitz.

Carnival Corp. successfully fended off a stricter order proposed by the judge at a hearing on Friday that would have required ships to get her approval 60 days before reentering U.S. waters — which would have essentially derailed its plans to restart cruises from PortMiami and Port Canaveral on Dec. 1. For ships returning to U.S. waters before Dec. 31, the company can file its certification up to seven days after returning, Wednesday’s order said.

Now, as the company brings ships back, CEO Arnold Donald will have to notify the court of the status of each ship’s pollution prevention equipment, spare parts, staffing, voyage planning software, and vetting of shore-side waste vendors, creating an extra hurdle for Carnival Corp. ships to resume cruises. If any of the items are incomplete, Donald will have to provide a plan and timeline for addressing the outstanding problem.

    I stumbled across your show while I prepare for my 1st cruise in 12/2024. I’m going from Mobile, Al to Belize and Cozumel on a 7 day cruise. It’s w/Carnival. It will be with my husband and our 2 children. It’s my kids’ birthday who are turning 15 and 13. Their birthdays are just a few days apart. We decided to celebrate big this year! I’m so excited! I hope to become an avid cruiser. I travel a lot anyway. I love the idea of cruising already! I have planned 3 previous cruises but had to cancel because the the 1st and 2nd time I ended up pregnant and too far along & the 3rd time I got COVID. This is the 4th time and I’m not letting anything stop me! lol I love the show. I love how funny you guys are! All the info is great. Can you do an updated podcast of what to pack for an embarking bag? Can you please give me more info on what to expect on my 1st cruise? Thank you so much for all of your great advice, information, and funny comments! Keep it up!

  • BEST CRUISE PODCAST!!
    May 8, 2024 by Elainemast from United States

    I’ve been listening to CruiseTipsTV for several years and I’m finally leaving a review. It started watching their content, when we went on our very first cruise in 2017. I absolutely look forward to listening to their podcast and it just makes me happy! I love the banter between Mr. CruiseTipsTV and Sherri! They are always so positive but also realistic. They also give so many tips and advice! Currently, I am mowing our yard and have them in my ears and it’s just getting me excited for our next cruise! Keep up the wonderful content and podcast! Y’all are the best! Elaine

    Very relatable host(s) who it’s easy to feel like you’re just sitting at a table with while they talk and banter enthusiastically about cruise stuff. Working hard for our attention, and I appreciate that.
