The facility can be extended at the company’s option for an additional 364 days. The company has borrowed the full amount available under the term loan to further bolster its liquidity.
Including this new financing, the company has over $3.6 billion of liquidity comprised of cash deposits and its existing undrawn revolving credit facilities (net of outstanding commercial paper). In addition, the company has committed financing for all of its new cruise ships on order.
“This is a period of unprecedented disruption for the cruise industry,” said Jason T. Liberty, executive vice president and CFO. “We continue to take decisive actions to protect the company’s financial and liquidity positions as they enable us to keep focused on our guests, our crew and our long-term plans.”
