Several US cruise lines have extended their rolling operational suspensions into 2021 owing to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus crisis on the sector.
Royal Caribbean Group on Tuesday (6 October) confirmed it was extending its suspension of all sailings to include those departing on or before 30 November, excluding ex-Hong Kong sailings.
Celebrity Cruises, meanwhile, has suspended its full 2020/21 winter programme in Australia and Asia, while Azamara is suspending its 2020/21 winter sailings in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South America.
Azamara now plans to return to service in the spring to catch the start of the 2021 European cruise season, with Azamara Quest resuming operations in March, Journey in April and Pursuit in May.
"We will be reaching out to our guests and travel partners to share further details and address any questions or concerns they may have," said the group.
Seabourn, meanwhile, has extended its cancellations for three of its ships into spring 2021.
Seabourn Odyssey will be laid up until 15 January 2021, Ovation until 18 April and Encore until 28 May.
Guests booked on impacted sailings will automatically have their bookings cancelled and will receive future cruise credit worth 100% of the fare paid, and an extra 25% credit.
Alternatively, they can request a full refund.
