This week in cruise recovery: Russian attack a concern

 Tuesday, March 1, 2022 


While Omicron continues to fade within the U.S., a positive step for travel and tourism, in contrast, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is causing some cruise lines to adapt schedules.

Viking has cancelled an upcoming “Kiev, Black Sea and Bucharest” itinerary, Norwegian Cruise Line has cancelled calls in St. Petersburg, Russia replacing them with other Baltic ports and many other lines are evaluating their next moves.

That said, the visitor entry situation in the Caribbean has improved for cruise guests.

Jamaica has just announced that, effective March 1, visitors will no longer have to secure travel authorization to enter the island nor will they have to quarantine. St. Maarten is also loosening some entry requirements, effective March 1.

Positives for Cruising

Among the positive developments in the cruise industry this past week, Carnival Cruise Line marked its 50th year of cruising by introducing details of the new Carnival Celebration, its second LNG-powered ship, set to debut in Miami later this year. 

On the world cruise front, Oceania Cruises unveiled its “2024 Around the World in 180 Days” itinerary, showing positivity for future global exploration.

Azamara also revealed plans for its 2024 World Cruise, as well as other AzAmazing Journeys.

Closer to home, Celebrity Cruises outlined plans for its 2023-2024 Caribbean season.

AmaWaterways’ Kristin Karst and Alex Pinelo provided Travel Agent with a business outlook, to go along with its latest sales trend gleanings.
