MSC Extends Cruising Halt Through May 29

The company previously paused operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now been extended from April 14 to May 14, due to the continued port closures and travel restrictions surrounding global health concerns.

The first option offers 100% future cruise credit.

In line with direction from health experts and government officials, Disney Cruise Line has chose to extend the suspension of all new departures through Tuesday, April 28, 2020. A notice on the company's website said that it applied to all ships through May 11, but that Carnival Radiance cruises scheduled for May 30 and June 11 also had been canceled.

All bookings will be cancelled automatically. Holland America Line will reimburse cancellation fees for air and other arrangements for travel to and from the cancelled cruise (this does not apply to chartered sailings).

MSC Cruises has chose to further extend the halting of all its new cruise departures fleet-wide through May 29.

MSC Cruises is working with all guests and their travel advisors to address the impact of this decision to their bookings.

In light of the cancellation, Disney Cruise Line is offering the choice of a 125% future cruise credit to be used for a future sailing within 15-months of your original sail date or a full refund.

The cruise line will continue to be on pause through May 29, 2020, due to the global COVID-19 emergency around the world. For cruises that were scheduled for six days or more, guests can receive a $600 onboard credit per stateroom.

"All of us at Holland America Line are wishing everyone the best during this unprecedented time".
