The news brings an end to a long journey for both crew and guests.
According to Holland America, there are nearly 1,200 guests onboard who are fit for travel per CDC guidelines and all guests would be transferred straight from their ships to charter flights home.
The policy will now be available for existing and new bookings on all of Royal’s brands—RCI, Celebrity, and Azamara—through Sept. 1, 2020.
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has extended its voluntarily suspension of sailings for all of its brands—NCL, Regent, and Oceania—through May 10 as part of the global efforts to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
Holland America Line said it will protect travel advisor commissions on bookings for cancelled cruises that were paid in full and for the total amount of the Future Cruise Credits when guests rebook.
Guests impacted will receive a 125% Future Cruise Credit, which will be applied automatically to their guest account for use on a future voyage.
