Royal Caribbean Announces Global Suspension Of Cruising.

Royal Caribbean Announces Global Suspension Of Cruising

At Royal Caribbean International, the safety and well-being of our guests and crew are always our top priorities. On March 13th, we made the decision to voluntarily suspend our sailings departing from US ports, and later on March 14th we decided to also suspend operations for the remainder of our sailings worldwide. Then on March 24th, we extended our voluntary suspension until May 11th, 2020. Now, after consulting with our partners at Cruise Lines International Association and in conjunction with the CDC, our global suspension has been extended – all sailings departing on and before June 11th, 2020 will be cancelled.

While our goal was to resume operations for most of our ships on May 12th, 2020, we will now resume our operation June 12th for the majority of our fleet. (Canadian ports will remain closed until July 1, 2020, due to port closures.)

If you have a reservation with us that is affected, please contact us.

URGENT: Cuba Cruise Update – Royal Caribbean

Via www.royalcaribbean.com

Cuba Travel Policy Update – June 05, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. (EDT)

Effective immediately, the U.S. government has implemented new regulations that prohibits travel from the U.S. to Cuba by cruise ship. This change requires us to immediately replace all Cuban ports. For all 2019 sailings on both Majesty of the Seas and Empress of the Seas, we have secured alternative ports and we are in the process of communicating the new itineraries to our guests and travel partners. For these guests, they will have the option of remaining on their sailing with the new itinerary and receiving a 50% refund or they may cancel their cruise and receive a full refund.

For 2020 sailings on both Majesty and Empress of the Seas, we are working to secure alternative itineraries and expect to be able to communicate to our guests and travel partners within the next week.

We are sorry for this unexpected and sudden change to our guests’ upcoming vacations and appreciate their understanding.

If you have a Cuba cruise booked with NexCruise please call us ASAP at 305-390-8266 or email at info@nexcruise.com.


URGENT: Cuba Cruise Update – Carnival Cruise Lines

Via Carnival.com

Cuba Update – 06/05/19 – 5:00 PM (EDT)

We want to provide you with important information regarding your upcoming trip to Havana, Cuba.
The U.S. government has imposed a series of new sanctions on Cuba prohibiting travel via cruise ship and rescinding certain categories of authorized travel, which previously allowed U.S. citizens to visit Cuba under the People-to-People program. Effective immediately, cruise ship travel is no longer allowed and we are required to cancel our visit to Havana. We have replaced our call to Havana with a replacement port to provide our guests with the best experience ashore.

We are in the process of notifying our guests of their new itineraries and their options, in the order of sailing date proximity. Mailings for sailings through the end of December 2019 are now in progress and include the following options:

• Remain on the sailing and receive a US$100.00, per person, onboard credit (no need to call us if you are continuing with your plans to sail with us)
• Move to another itinerary and receive a US$50.00, per person, onboard credit
• Cancel and receive a full refund

Guests who were booked to travel on a 2020 sailing that included Havana will have the opportunity to remain on the sailing, move to another itinerary (note: no onboard credit will be offered in either case) or cancel and receive a full refund. Mailings with itinerary details will be sent in the next 2-3 days.

Revised itineraries:

Carnival Paradise Sailings

Carnival Sensation Sailings

Carnival Sunrise Sailings

Carnival Sunshine Sailings

Carnival Victory Sailings

We sincerely apologize to our guests for this unexpected change and thank them for their understanding. We look forward to welcoming them onboard a Carnival cruise in the near future.

If you have a booking with NexCruise, please call us at 305-390-8266 or email at info@nexcruise.com.
