Royal Caribbean Extends Pause on Cruise Operations

The world’s second-largest cruise company has decided to extends its pause on cruises through July 31, 2020. This comes after the cruise company released a business update and what will need to be done to get cruising back to normal.

Cruises are set to begin from August 1 but it’s expected that not all sailings will begin and cruise ships will slowly start resuming services. This impacts not just Royal Caribbean International but also other cruise brands such as Celebrity Cruises.

Here’s the statement from Royal Caribbean:

Given ongoing global public health circumstances, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has decided to extend the suspension of most sailings through July 31, 2020, with the exception of sailings from China, which will be suspended through the end of June.

We are working with our guests and travel partners to address this disruption to their vacations, and we are genuinely sorry for their inconvenience.

We expect to return to service on August 1.

There is some good news, however, sailings from China are set to commence in July with cruises there suspended until the end of June. This is good for guests booked on Spectrum of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas sailings.
