Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings LTD has cancelled all November cruises for Norwegian, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas.
A press release read “Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. a leading global cruise company which operates the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, today announced an extension of its previously announced suspension of global cruise voyages to include all voyages embarking between November 1 through November 30, 2020 for its three cruise brands.“
Norwegian Holdings Ltd. said in a press release that it will “continue to work in tandem with global government and public health authorities and its Healthy Sail Panel expert advisors to take all necessary measures to protect its guests, crew and the communities visited.”
All guests that have been affected by the cancellations are encouraged to contact their travel advisor or booking agent.
The news comes as the CDC extended its “No-sail” order through October, and days after Carnival Cruise Lines canceled all of its sailings through the end of the year except for those from Florida ports.
A message on the Norwegian Cruise Line official website read “The safety, security and well-being of our guests, crew and communities we visit is our number one priority. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 coronavirus situation and the global health environment. With COVID-19 continuing to impact communities and ports around the globe, we have extended our voluntary temporary suspension of all voyages through November 2020 and cruises on Norwegian Star, Norwegian Spirit, and Norwegian Dawn through March 2021.”
Norwegian and Carnival aren’t the only major cruise lines with cancelations. Royal Caribbean, has suspended cruises through Oct. 31, though it has also canceled transatlantic, European and Australian itineraries beyond that date.
While some cruise lines have restarted in Europe and other parts of the world, the cruise industry has largely been on hold worldwide since COVID-19 began to take hold in late February and early March.
MSC and Costa Cruises have led the way for large cruise lines return to sea. Combined, the two brands have 5 large ships back at sea and have not reported once case of COVID-19 since resuming operations.
