Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has extended their voluntary suspension of ocean cruises for the third time.  U.S. cruise operations have now been canceled through October 31, 2020.

The following cruise lines are members of CLIA:

Carnival Cruise Line
Celebrity Cruises
Disney Cruise Line
Holland America Line
MSC Cruises
Norwegian Cruise Line
Oceania Cruises
Princess Cruises
Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Royal Caribbean
Silversea Cruises
Virgin Voyages

CLIA posted the following message about the new wave of cruise cancellations:

“Committed to the health and safety of passengers and crew, CLIA ocean-going cruise line members are announcing a third voluntary suspension of U.S. cruise operations until 31 October 2020. CLIA cruise line members are using this time to work with outside experts and partners to develop science-based COVID-19 mitigation protocols to guide the resumption of operations when the time is right.”

According to CLIA’s most recent Economic Impact Study, cruise activity in the United States supports nearly half a million (421,000) American jobs and generates $53 billion annually in economic activity throughout the country.

Each day of the suspension of U.S. cruise operations results in a loss of up to $110 million in economic activity and 800 direct and indirect American jobs. The impact of the suspension is particularly profound in states that depend heavily on cruise tourism, including Florida, Texas, Alaska, Washington, New York and California.
