Cruise Lines Inch Back Sail Suspensions — So Who’s Cruising?

If you are planning to take a cruise in fall 2020, then you may be out of luck. Many cruise lines are pushing back their sailings into next year, 2021. Still, a few are keeping hope alive for fall cruising in 2020 and haven’t yet removed them from their schedules.

If you want to book a cruise for this year, then it’s important to fully review the cruise line’s cancellation policies and think about securing cruise ship insurance for your potential voyage. Read on to find out how to lower your risk as you plan your next cruise.

Is Anyone Sailing?

Many cruise lines, large and small, have taken all sailing off their schedule for the remainder of the year.

Changes Cruise Lines Need to Make to Bring People Back

Over the last few months, you’ve likely heard numerous stories about ruined vacations due to COVID-19. One of the hardest-hit industries is the cruise industry. Even Disney Cruise Line has pushed its canceled sailings into October.

As cruise lines look to get things back on track and resume sailings later this year, the question on everyone’s mind isn’t really when sailings are going to happen, but how. In other words, if cruise lines want bookings to return to normal, they need to take measures to help the public feel safe when they come on board.

What are some of these changes that cruise lines are or should be considering?

Cruise Lines: The Surprise Heroes of the Aftermath of Dorian

Hurricane Dorian was the latest Category 5 storm to hit the East Coast. While Floridians braced themselves for a big hit, the real victims of the storm were the people of the Bahamas.

Fifty Bahamians died in the storm, with over 1,000 people missing and 15,000 in need of medical care. Another 70,000 citizens were rendered homeless.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the President made a statement on Twitter saying that the hurricane victims could be “very bad people,” and refused to grant them Temporary Protected Status.

Fortunately, another group has come in to provide aid to the devastated island…and it may not be who you expect.

Who is it? Cruise lines.

Mechanical Issue Derails Norwegian Cruise Ship, Strands Passengers

The Norwegian Pearl, a cruise ship in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, recently experienced a mechanical problem in the midst of a 13-night cruise.

Although the issue did not stop the cruise, it forced the ship to travel at a slower speed and cancel several ports of call. Passengers, stranded aboard the vessel, have taken to social media to express their outrage.

Moreover, the cruise line cancelled an upcoming voyage on the Norwegian Pearl three days before the date of sailing in order to perform “necessary repairs.”

This incident has affected thousands of passengers, ruining a very costly vacation that they’d likely had on the books for months ahead of time.

 World’s Longest Cruises – Would You Go?

Have you dreamed of traveling the world in a leisurely manner, stopping off in ports all around the globe? If so, a world cruise may be the ultimate vacation choice for you – but be prepared for a long trip.

Last year, UK’s Mundy Cruising made history by offering the longest world cruise package ever – an astounding 357 days, encompassing several different ships and every continent (yes, even Antarctica).

Obviously, that trip was a bit of an exception, but world cruises are still quite long. Typically, they last three to four months and allow you to see a wide variety of cultures in one trip.

They can cost a pretty penny, too, though some compare fairly well to
