Norwegian Cruise Line Cancels More Cruises

Norwegian Cruise Line and its three owned cruise lines have cancelled all sailings through October 31, 2020. This is a further extension on the suspension of operations which was previously through September 30, 2020.

NCL is also changing the way it provides updates on voyage suspensions and potential extensions. An update will be made at the end of each month starting from August tp provide further transparency on its planned operations.

Those guests impacted by the further cancellations will receive compensation for their cancelled cruise and it does depend on the cruise line. For Norwegian Cruise Line, a 125% Future Cruise Credit is being offered which can be used one year from the issued date. The credit will need to be used on any departure through 2022.

As it stands, the cruise lines are set to resume cruises from October but that could change further. It all depends on the CDC “No Sail Order” which we reported on here, ongoing travel restrictions in specific countries and port closures. It includes a number of factors to get cruising going again and a major part of that is new health procedures.
