It was pause their service. If you do not know why and when it was paused then no need to worry. I will let you know all the update about cruise industry.

When and Why Cruise Industry Paused Their Service?

February,2020 Diamond Princess Cruise found many passengers and crew were COVID-19 positive and Source says that may be this ship could be the reason to spread the COVID-19 around the world.

After this latest news, all the cruise industry pause their service in the month of March, 2020. At the beginning cruise industry was suspended their service for a month only.

April,9, 2020, CDC announced no sail order for all the cruise ships till further notice because of the health and safety precaution for Americans.

See, We all know about coronavirus and how fast it’s spreading around the world and this cruise industry have volume of people at a time and this could be a way of spreading this virus this is the reason CDC announced no sail order till further notice.

When will cruises resume 2020

It’s a great update from majority of cruise industry about their resuming for service. Most of the cruise line are promising to resume on service in 1st and 2nd November, 2020.

All the big cruise line can resume for service in 1st or 2nd week on November, 2020. And these cruise line are Carnival Cruise line, Royal Caribbean Cruise line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruise Line, etc.

I also believe some of the ships can resume for service in particular places but If you thinking all the cruise company will resume for service with their all ships then you are wrong.

They must check the situation of virus around the world and then they will come slowly-slowly in the service.

All the Cruises are suspended until October, 31, 2020, and they expecting to resume on service in November 1st week.

So be ready for unlimited fun onboard after six month, We all are very exited to have fun like no tomorrow.

Caution of Resuming on Service without covid vaccine

You know better then me what happening next to you, Cruise industry is all about onboard service in sea, It’s not land base service. So my concern is If one of the guest get positive on board then there is a 100% chance to spread this virus in everyone very quickly.

So If you are planning to do cruising in coming day then be very very careful with your health and safety on board, I mean to say your safety in your hand.
