Norwegian Cruise Line has canceled at least eight upcoming sailings after some of their ships returned to their port early due to COVID outbreaks.

"Our first priority is the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities we visit. Due to ongoing travel restrictions, we've had to modify a few sailings," read a statement from NCL.

Norwegian is not alone, Royal Caribbean has also announced cancellations.

According to the U.S. Government’s cruise monitoring website, virtually every ship in U.S. waters has reported COVID cases. The CDC is investigating each case.

Just last week, they put out a warning:  

  • Avoid cruise travel, regardless of vaccination status.
  • Even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants.

The question now is, how will these cruise companies survive? Royal Caribbean doesn’t seem worried, as construction has already begun for their new headquarters that will house more than 4,000 employees in a state-of-the-art facility at PortMiami.
