Note: The dates in this article for when cruise lines will resume cruises were updated on April 21, 2020:
Over the past week, cruise lines each gave an updated timetable when their cruise ships will once again embark passengers for cruises.
Each cruise line is setting a different timetable for when they will return. Most cruise lines originally canceled just 30 days of cruises due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All cruise lines that were hoping to resume cruises in April have now pushed back their start date until May.
