Royal Caribbean Group has decided to extend the suspension of most services until at least the end of February, 2021. The move comes as the cruise line continues to work with the United States Centres for Disease Control & Prevention and government authorities around the world towards a safe return to cruising.
Parent brand Royal Caribbean will cancel most sailings until February 28, but those departing from Australia have been suspended until at least April 30. However, Spectrum of the Seas sailings in China is expected to go ahead from January 20, while Quantum of the Seas is resuming service in Singapore.
After months of careful planning, extensive training and simulated trials, the vessel resumed cruises for Singapore residents this week with comprehensive health and safety measures in place to meet the requirements of the CruiseSafe Certification standards developed by the local government.
Celebrity Cruises will see all global sailings suspended until the end of February. In addition, South America sailings on the luxury line have also been suspended until at least April 7 next year. Silversea Cruises will also suspend all trips until the start of April, except for a February 6 departure of Silver Origin. Azamara has cancelled all sailings until March 20 as well.
