Most North American Cruising On Hold Until October as CDC Extends 'No-Sail' Order
Call it the final nail in the coffin for a quick comeback to cruising in North America.
Citing the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) late Thursday extended its “no-sail” order for cruise ships operating out of U.S. ports until Sept. 30.
Initially announced in March and extended in April, the order had been scheduled to expire on July 24.
The order forbids cruise companies from operating passenger trips out of U.S. ports or calling at U.S. ports with passengers.
