CLIA Extends Suspension of Cruising From US Ports Until September
The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) announced on June 19 that its ocean-going cruise line members will voluntarily extend the suspension of cruise operations from U.S. ports until Sept. 15, 2020, as the coronavirus outbreak continues.
“The current no-sail order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will expire on July 24, and although we had hoped that cruise activity could resume as soon as possible after that date, it is increasingly clear that more time will be needed to resolve barriers to resumption in the United States,” the CLIA statement said.
