Princess Cruises’ sailings will remain paused until mid-May, the line has confirmed.
All Caribbean, California coast, early season Alaska and Europe cruises have been placed on hold.
The line said the pause would allow it to prepare and develop its plans to meet the stipulations of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s framework for conditional sailing order, which allows passenger cruising to resume under strict new Covid health and safety arrangements.
Additionally, Princess said there remained uncertainty around travel restrictions owing to Covid.
All cruises departing up to, and including, 14 May have been suspended, Princess confirmed late on Wednesday (6 January). Princess had previous announced an operational pause valid until 31 March.
