Royal Caribbean has announced that it is extending the suspension of its cruise operations. The further suspensions apply to cruises with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Silversea and Azamara.
In a statement, RCI said: “Royal Caribbean Group continues to focus on the healthy and safe return to cruising for guests, crew and the communities we visit. As we work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and government authorities around the world toward this shared goal, we are extending the suspension of certain sailings for our cruise lines.”
The following schedule reflects adjustments to the upcoming 2021 itineraries:
- Royal Caribbean International: Suspending sailings through April 30, including Spectrum of the Seas from February 16 through February 28 (excluding Quantum of the Seas)
- Celebrity Cruises: Suspending sailings through April 30, including the May 1 transatlantic cruise on Celebrity Apex. May through October 2021 Europe and transatlantic cruises on Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Constellation will also be suspended
- Silversea Cruises: Suspending through April 1
- Azamara: Suspending sailings through April 30
Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas resumed sailing in Singapore last month with the local government’s CruiseSafe Certification. The certification confirms the three- and four-night Ocean Getaways meet the comprehensive health and safety requirements developed by the Singapore government.
The statement continued: “Royal Caribbean Group continues to work with our Healthy Sail Panel of globally recognised scientific and medical experts to come back stronger, and we look forward to welcoming our guests back on board.
“We are reaching out to our guests and travel partners to share further details and address any questions or concerns they may have.”
