Norwegian Reportedly Cancels Spirit's Asia Sailings Into December

Norwegian Cruise Line is reportedly canceling all Asia-bound sailings aboard Norwegian Spirit from April 15 through December 7, 2020 "due to growing concerns regarding coronavirus."

"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes," the cruise line said in a message to travel agents and affected passengers. "Please be advised that a full refund will be processed automatically to the form of payment provided at the time of booking."

Norwegian also said it will issue future cruise credit worth 10 percent toward a future booking, and the company will cover up to $300 per person for airfare change fees.

Norwegian Spirit is currently in the late stages of a $100 million-plus renovation. The 40-day drydock that began in Marseille, France last month has been extended due to labor strikes, with a preview sailing scheduled to begin from Civitavecchia, Italy on February 14.

The ongoing coronavirus outbreak has forced multiple cruise lines to adjust their schedules, cancel sailings and even ban some guests out of an abundance of caution.
