Covid-19 coronavirus: Royal Caribbean and P&O cruises extended suspension

Royal Caribbean International, the Miami-based cruise company whose global fleet represents a quarter of the world’s cruise ships, has announced it will be extending its suspension of sailings.

In light of the current pandemic and ports being closed to cruise traffic, the company announced yesterday that it would not return to service until at least 12 May, 2020.

Due to local port restrictions, sailings out of Canada, Alaska and New England will be further suspended until July 1.

Royal Caribbean whose fleet holds 61 ships also represents the cruise brands of Celebrity Cruises, Azamara and Silversea Cruises, as well as partnerships with liners in Europe. Celebrity Cruises announced on Tuesday it is also suspending operations in line with the parent company.
