Cruise lines that have suspended service due to coronavirus
See all the lines that have canceled trips and how passengers will be refunded.
As of March 14, all ocean-bound cruises from the US — including trips with Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and MSC Cruises — are suspended for 30 days.
The move comes in response to an outbreak of COVID-19. The Trump administration has passed a 30-day travel ban on parts of Europe, several travel advisories are out for different countries and general unease about hopping on a cruise with thousands of people is at an all-time high. Ever since several ships were quarantined last month due to outbreaks, the cruise industry has been hit particularly hard.
