Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises will be cancelling cruise holidays into November 2020 due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The three cruise lines’ parent company, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, has announced that it is extending the suspension of all of its cruises, to include sailings from the 1st November through to the 30th November 2020.
The company says it will “continue to work in tandem with global government and public health authorities and its Healthy Sail Panel expert advisors to take all necessary measures to protect its guests, crew and the communities visited”.
Passengers who are booked on any cancelled sailings are being asked to contact their travel advisor, or the cruise line they have booked with, for more information regarding the next steps to take.
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd isn’t the only company to have suspended operations during the coronavirus pandemic.
Almost every cruise line has been forced to cancel a number of sailings, or in some cases temporarily suspend operations altogether due to the ongoing travel restrictions in place.
For example, Cunard, P&O Cruises and Viking Cruises have all announced that they are cancelling all sailings until 2021.

Cruise lines have been offering options including refunds, the option to re-book or vouchers to use on future holidays – but what’s offered can differ depending on the cruise line you have booked with.
At the time of writing, the Foreign Office advises against cruise ship travel, meaning that Brits’ trips have been cancelled.
