Since the weekend, many cruisers have been worried after seeing on the website that Norwegian Cruise Line has cancelled almost all sailings for June. Can this happen before NCL announces another suspension until July?
Norwegian Cruise Line removed almost all of its cruises from its booking system over the weekend, including from its website. The NCL website lists only two cruises from Hawaii, all other cruises have been cancelled.
There are only two offers for Pride of America, which is based in Hawaii. Apart from these two trips, everything else has been removed. After the Hawaii cruises in June, the next sailings from Miami will begin in early July 2021.
It is important to note that this may be nothing and the cruise line is simply making changes or adjustments to itineraries to follow the CDC (Conditional Sailing Order) framework. However, this is a trend we have seen over the past year with major cruise lines withdrawing yachts and then announcing further suspensions.

We’ll just have to wait and see, as parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holding is expected to make an announcement in the coming days. In recent months, NCL has announced the expansion of its business, overtaking rivals Carnival and Royal Caribbean.
Currently, Norwegian Cruise Line has ceased operations until May 2021, as announced on the 16th. February 2021 announced.

In these difficult times, anything is possible, and we’ve already seen a troubling note from the cruise line.
Norwegian Cruise Line has already begun repatriating other crew members. Last week, Cruise Hive reported on the first group of 586 crew members who returned to the Philippines from Aruba after disembarking from the Norwegian Joy.
Here’s an earlier report from Norwegian Cruise Line that they sent a letter to the newly arrived crew members indicating that they needed to be repatriated. The cruise line has already lost $15 million, while operations are expected to resume in early 2021.
Cruise lines must follow technical guidelines established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The US industry is still waiting for studies to begin to test all the new health protocols. We haven’t heard from that front in a while.

NCL has already confirmed that crew members should be vaccinated before returning to the ships until the vaccine is provided by the United States. Several cruise lines have already instructed their customers to get vaccinated, and the longer the disruption to cruises continues, the more likely it is that major operators will be affected.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens, Cruise Hive will certainly keep its readers updated on new developments.
