Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Is the latest cruise line to suspend sailings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, pausing all cruises in the United States for 30 days.
In a statement, Royal Caribbean said:
“We understand the gravity of the public health crisis confronting the country. And this is our part to play. So, beginning at midnight tonight, we are pausing the fleet's US sailings for 30 days.
“We are reaching out to our guests to help them work through this disruption to their vacations, and we are truly sorry for their inconvenience. We are also communicating with our crew to work out the issues this decision presents for them. We know this adds great stress to our guests, employees and crew, and we are working to minimize the disruption.
“Our business is providing great vacations and creating great memories. We look forward to getting back to work as soon as we can.”
The news comes after Disney Cruise Line and Princess Cruise Line announced yesterday that they would be cancelling cruises.
