Holland America, Princess Cruises cancel cruises until April 2021

While the cruise industry is on an operational pause through the end of the year, a few cruise lines have begun to voluntarily extend their sailing suspensions past that date.

Holland America Line, a subsidiary of cruise giant Carnival Corp., has announced it will further suspend sailings from resuming across the globe until April 1, 2021. 

"As Holland America Line continues to prepare and develop its plans to meet the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the company is extending its pause of cruise operations for all departures through March 31, 2021," the cruise line said in the announcement.

The cruise line also canceled itineraries of eight days or longer that make port calls in the U.S. until Nov. 1, 2021. Some longer voyages in South America, Australia and New Zealand and Asia will also be canceled through mid-April 2021, according to the announcement with some rescheduled to similar dates in 2022.
