Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line, said:

“As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented and challenging times, the best decision right now is to extend our pause in cruise operations into the fall.”

“While this is very disappointing and we never want to let our guests down, as soon as it makes sense we will be back cruising again, giving our guests the memorable travel experiences they continue to dream about.”

This is an unprecedented time and the cruise industry has been hit hard. Cruise lines including Holland America are currently shut down due to the global pandemic and travel restrictions around the world.
