Carnival Corp’s Seabourn, Holland America Line (HAL) and Princess Cruises brands have extended their respective pauses in cruise operations into the summer.
All three lines announced further changes to their 2021 programmes late on Tuesday (9 March) owing to the ongoing Covid crisis in Europe and north America.
It comes after Royal Caribbean Group made a similar announcement just hours earlier concerning its Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Silversea Cruises and Azamara brands.
Seabourn has cancelled all departures onboard Sojourn, Encore and Ovation up to 2 July, with all three ships now next scheduled to depart on 3 July.
Seabourn Quest, meanwhile, won’t now return to service until 7 November. Impacted guests and their agents will be sent "specific details applicable to their booking", said Seabourn.
HAL has confirmed it has paused all European cruise operations until the end of June, impacting May and June cruises onboard Nieuw Statendam, Volendam and Westerdam, along with associated Collectors’ Voyages.
Eight Nieuw Volendam departures from 2 May through to 27 June have been cancelled, as have Volendam and Westerdam’s respective 19 June departures.
Princess Cruises has pulled its Caribbean, California coast, Mexico and Mediterranean sailings departing up to and on 30 June.
This affects Caribbean Princess’s seven-day Caribbean cruises, Enchanted Princess’s seven- and 14-day western Mediterranean and Adriatic sailings, and Ruby Princess’s seven-day California and Mexican Riviera voyages, as well as its five-day Cabo San Lucas sailings.
