Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has decided to cancel all sailings until the end of June in light of the current restrictions in England as a result of the pandemic. The company had been due to resume sailing on May 22, with the extension to affect 14 sailings. All affected guests will be given a number of options, including a no quibble refund or an additional future cruise credit.
Peter Deer, Managing Director, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said in a statement that the cruise line is constantly reviewing its back in service dates in line with the latest government guidance, and working closely with CLIA and other industry bodies towards a return to sailing.
He mentioned that the extra time will allow the cruise line the opportunity to fully understand how the roll-out in the vaccine affects the procedures operated on board and ashore. He said that authorities are aware that guests are missing cruising, and we cannot wait to welcome them all back on board when the time is right.
