On the heels ofCarnivalextending its operations suspension until June 27,Royal Caribbeanhas extended its return to service date until June 12. The announcement also includesCelebrity Cruises, SilverseaandAzamara Club Cruises.
A message on the cruise line’s website said, “after consulting with our partners at Cruise Lines International Association and in conjunction with the CDC, our global suspension has been extended – all sailings departing on and before June 11th, 2020 will be cancelled.”
On March 24, the cruise line previously announced they would return on May 12, 2020.
The extension stems from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s decision to prolong itsNo Sail Orderby 100 days, or mid-July. However, the CDC Director may rescind or modify the order, based on public health or other considerations.
