Costa Cruises Suspension of Operations Extention

The Carnival-owned cruise line has followed Royal Caribbean by extending the suspension of operations due to the coronavirus outbreak around the world. The halt on cruises will now be until April 30, 2020, rather than the original April 3, 2020.

Costa Cruises released the following statement:

Genoa, March 23 2020 – Due to the protracted emergency situation for the global pandemic of Covid-19 and the further introduction of containment measures – such as ports closure and restrictions on the movement of people – which do not actually allow to operate, Costa Cruises has decided to extend the voluntary suspension of its cruises until April 30, 2020.

As previously communicated, the cruises currently underway are ending their current itinerary only to allow guests to disembark and return home. Costa Cruises is taking steps to inform travel agents and customers affected by the changes, that they will receive a voucher equal to what the Company has earned, as a form of greater guarantee for travelers.

The cruise line is also working on ending any current voyages which had already departed before the time of suspension. Those guests impacted by the further cancellations are also being contacted.
