Who’s Sailing This Summer and How Will It Work?

If you’re someone who loves cruises, this past year (and change) has likely felt torturous. For the past 15 months, cruises have essentially been cancelled — and with no clear end in sight.

Now, however, much of the country seems to be reopening and getting back to normal — or at least the “new normal.” Will cruises follow suit?

They already are.

Back in April, the CDC released a letter to the cruise industry saying that cruises could restart provided that 98% of the crew and 95% of the passengers were vaccinated. Then, in May, Royal

Cruise Lines Eager to Sell Tickets Again—But They Won’t Refund

After all that people went through in 2020, 2021 is shaping up to be a very kind type of year. One of the ways it’s going to be different? Travel. That’s right – travel is back!

Not only do more and more people want to travel – and, more importantly, are willing to travel. Travel companies like cruise lines are also enticing travelers with great deals and discounts.

Of course, this doesn’t always work out – especially with the cruise restrictions in place.

Even the best-laid plans can get canceled. Princess Cruises, for example, canceled several sailings through August of 2021 and others through the end of the year.

To help protect you from losses related to cancellations, you need

Cruises Are Ready to Set Sail Again… Or Are They?

After a long, lonely spring season on the water, one cruise line is getting ready to set sail on the high seas. Genting Cruise Lines, an Asia-based cruise company, announced that it plans to become the very first cruise line to resume service after COVID-19.

On July 26, the Explorer Dream was set to depart from Keelung in northeastern Taiwan before cruising to the Penghu, Matzu, and Kinmen islands.
