The CDC’s No Sail Order was scheduled to expire next week. The CDC has now extended the ban on cruises through September 30, 2020.

All cruise lines that are a member of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) have already volunteered to suspend cruises through at least September 15.  The CDC has stated that they supported this decision by CLIA members.

The CDC said that they extended its No Sail Order to ensure that passenger operations on cruise ships do not resume too soon.

The extension of the CDC’s No Sail Order will remain in effect until the earliest of:

  • The expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that COVID-19 constitutes a public health emergency
  • The CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific public health or other considerations
  • September 30, 2020
