Set Sail Safely Act to Get Cruise Industry Moving Again

Florida Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio have introduced a new Set Sail Safely Act to get the cruise industry moving again.

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced a further extension to its voluntary suspension on cruise operations following other major cruise lines.

NCL Sailings Cancelled Through End of June

The new extension was announced by parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Ltd and also impacts sister lines Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The extension is to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and due to travel restrictions now in place around the world.

Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, said:

“We are committed to taking all appropriate actions to combat the spread of COVID-19 and as such, have extended our global voyage suspension through June 30. We continue to work closely and in partnership with the U.S.CDC, global public health authorities and local, state and federal governments to build upon our already rigorous health and safety protocols to ensure that our brands are ready to safely resume operations with these new protocols in place.”

“Our teams are working around the clock to do what is right by our loyal guests and valued travel partners and we greatly appreciate their understanding as we continue to adapt to the ever-evolving global health environment.”

Cruises will now be cancelled through June 30 with the first cruises starting embarkations on July 1, 2020. The previous extension was through May 14, 2020, but was likely to be extended again due to the ongoing pandemic developments and an extended “No-Sail Order” by the U.s. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

For those who booked with Norwegian Cruise Line will automatically receive a 125% or 150% refund of their cruise fare. This refund will be a Future Cruise Credit which can be used on another sailing through December 31, 2022. Guests impacted by the new extension should have the credit applied to their accounts by May 1, 2020.

This news follows Carnival Cruise Line which has cancelled cruises through June 26 and Royal Caribbean through June 11. More and more cruise lines around the world are now extending their suspension and you can take a look at a full list right here.
