When are Cruises expected to return?
There has been a lot of mixed messages when it comes to the cruise lines including the CDC’s sailing ban, port closures, lack of suitable infrastructure including flights and increased travel restrictions that change from country to country.
The CDC issued a strict no sail order on April 9th for 100 days to expire in late July. However CLIA, the Cruise Line Industry Association, has announced a voluntary suspension of service from U.S ports until September 15. This suspension only applies to ships that leave from U.S ports.
