Shares of Carnival (NYSE: CCL)(NYSE: CUK) were up 0.5% in afternoon trading Monday after announcing its Princess Cruises had completed their first voyages after having been shut down for nearly one and a half years. Carnival's stock had opened the day up more than 4% but gave back most of those gains as the day went on. The cruise industry was arguably treated worse by the federal government than any other industry in the country as cruise ship operators were forbidden from sailing even as virtually the rest of the economy was reopened.
An internal document from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lays out some rather alarming language about the threat posed by the delta variant of COVID-19, describing it as as transmissible as chickenpox and warning that "the war [against coronavirus] has changed." If and when new advice is issued specific to the cruise industry, it might very well disrupt Carnival's plans to get half its fleet operating again by mid-October, as it recently promised -- and delay Norwegian's plans to have its entire fleet sailing again by mid-April 2022.
