Seabourn said the decision to cancel additional voyages is “a proactive action” to deal with the circumstances continuing to evolve from the global response to the COVID-19 situation.
Despite the uncertainty, Tollman is remaining optimistic about a recovery, while he and his colleagues at TTC are taking things day-by-day, a philosophy they’ve followed since early in the pandemic.
Cancelled cruises include Caribbean, Mexico, Australia, and Asia itineraries.
Royal Caribbean Group Chairman and CEO said “People are frustrated being at home and being isolated.”
The Carnival Corp.-owned line said it is ready for the responsible restart of cruises, and will work closely with officials to adhere to the government’s new protocols, which will be released soon.
The cruise line will continue to protect travel professionals’ commission on the original sailing that is paid in full and cancelled by Disney Cruise Line.
“What you’ve got to remember [is that] they’re coming to you because they’ve got a problem, either lack of time, lack of knowledge, or they’re not quite sure of what they could be missing and they don’t want to pull the trigger on their own. This new business model will not be based on commissions, but rather on our value as travel advisors.”
