There are new signs of trouble on the high seas and here's what the cruise lines are doing in the middle of the pandemic.

GALVESTON, Texas -- Carnival Cruise Line is canceling most U.S. sailings through the end of this year.

It's the latest sign that the cruise industry's recovery from the coronavirus pandemic could still be many months away.

The company said it's canceling sailings from all ports except its home ports of Miami and Port Canaveral, Florida, but it stressed that it still might not sail from those ports in November and December.

Carnival's announcement came the day after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended a ban on large cruises in U.S. waters through Oct. 31.
