Carnival Corporation's flagship cruise line was given the green light by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to begin sailing from three U.S. ports.
Carnival Cruise Line – the latest fleet to receive CDC approval to begin hitting U.S. waters again this summer– will focus on the Port of Galveston in Texas as well as Port Miami and Port Canaveral in Florida for "its return to guest operations this summer," Carnival announced Friday.

All three "are all key homeports for Carnival Cruise Line," according to the company.
Its Carnival Horizon ship, leaving from Miami, and the Carnival Vista and Breeze ships, leaving from Galveston, will be the first to carry passengers this July. However, Carnival fell short of announcing exactly when the ships would set sail.
In the coming days, Carnival is also expected to announce plans to restart operations at Port Canaveral, which has been deemed another "restart priority."
