6 major cruise lines cancel December sailings in wake of CDC order

3 Nov 2020

Youll now have to wait until at least January to take a cruise. The
parent companies of the six brands, Royal Caribbean Group and
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, on Monday said they would
extend their halts to cruise operations at the lines through at
least Dec. 31.The announcements come just three days after the
CDC lifted its longstanding no-sail order for cruise ships sailing
in U.S. waters a seemingly positive sign for the industry. But
the CDC replaced the no-sail order with a new framework for
conditional sailing order that will require lines to jump through a
number of hoops before they can resume sailing. Among the
requirements of the new order is that cruise lines apply for what
the CDC is calling a Conditional Sailing Certificate at least 60
days before they want to resume sailing. That means that even if
a cruise line applies for a certificate today, it wouldnt be able to
resume sailing in U.S. waters until at least Jan. 1 at the very
earliest.
