The cancellations will affect sailings between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, 2020, excluding Seattle-based Alaska voyages, according to the company. Norwegian will also cancel select voyages through October because of travel and port restrictions, including Pacific Coastal voyages on the Norwegian Bliss and Joy, and Canada and New England cruises on the Breakaway, Gem, Insignia and Seven Seas Navigator.
The cruise line added that it will "work in tandem with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the federal government and global public health authorities to take all necessary precautions to ensure the health, safety and security of guests, crew and the communities visited."
Guests who are currently booked on canceled voyages on Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises or Regent Seven Seas Cruises are encouraged to contact their travel agent or the cruise line for more information.
