Royal Caribbean has extended its suspension in the U.S. through April 2021, with the first sailings from the country now planned for May.
The new adjustments announced by Royal Caribbean Group on Tuesday morning impacts all owned cruise brands including Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Silversea Cruises, and Azamara.
Royal Caribbean International which is the leading operator was previously planning on returning in March but now that won’t be the case. The cruise line has canceled sailings through April 30, 2021. This means cruises will not resume until the start of May at the earliest.
The cruise company continues to focus on new health and safety protocols to make sure guests and crew remain safe. Royal Caribbean is working with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) on the framework for the Conditional Sailing Order.
