Carnival Cruise line has been forced to cancel three additional sailings as a result of issues affecting its carnival Vista cruise ship.
The company had already been forced to modify several sailings due to an issue which affects the ships maximum speed.
In a statement the company said “"The Carnival Vista has been experiencing an issue affecting its maximum cruising speed...Unfortunately, we will be unable to operate the above voyages, as it is necessary to remove the ship from service to complete the required repairs."
The company said that it will be automatically issuing refunds for the affected travelers. The company also offered those affected a 100% credit which “must be used to rebook a sailing taking place before December 20, 2020."
