Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (NCLH) has once again extended its brand-wide suspension of operations to include all voyages embarking between Nov. 1-30.

The extension applies to all three of the company’s brands: Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas. The company previously announced its suspension of global operations to include all voyages embarking between Oct. 1-31, 2020.

The news comes on the heels of the CDC’s extension of the No Sail Order to Oct. 31, which continues to suspend passenger operations on cruise ships with the capacity to carry at least 250 passengers in waters subject to U.S. jurisdiction.

Guests who are currently booked on cancelled voyages on any of the three brands are asked to contact their travel agent or the cruise line for more information.

Last month, the Healthy Sail Panel – founded by NCLH and Royal Caribbean Group this past summer – submitted its first phase of recommendations to the CDC. In total, 74 best practices were included in the report, ranging from testing, sanitation and contingency planning, to excursion planning and mitigating risks for crew members.
