Given global public health circumstances, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has decided to further extend the suspension of sailings of their global fleet.
In a recent statement Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. announced: “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.”
Royal Caribbean now expects to return to service on May 12, 2020. Because of announced port closures, the cruise line expects to return to service for Alaska, Canada and New England sailings July 1, 2020. The Government of Canada previously decided to defer the start of the cruise ship season in Canada, from April 2, 2020, to July 1, 2020 at the earliest.
