Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises extended suspensions

Royal Caribbean Cruises extend the suspension of sailings of its global fleet in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the company said Tuesday. 

“We are working with our guests to address this disruption to their vacations, and we are genuinely sorry for their inconvenience. We are also working with our crew to sort out the issues this decision presents for them,” a statement read. 

“We expect to return to service on May 12, 2020. Because of announced port closures, we expect to return to service for Alaska, Canada and New England sailings July 1, 2020.”

Royal Caribbean’s subsidiary cruise company Celebrity Cruises immediately followed suit announcing an identical continuation of its suspension. 

Royal Caribbean and Celebrity had originally planned to return to sea on April 11, after announcing the suspension on March 13.

Passengers on canceled cruises are being offered a full refund or future credit of 125 percent to use by the end of 2021.
