The world's 3rd-largest cruise shipowner NCLH (Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings) extended fleetwide suspensions for its 3 subsidiary companies (travel brands) - Oceania Cruises, RSSC-Regent Seven Seas Cruises and NCL-Norwegian Cruise Line.
On Tuesday, June 16, NCLH announced it would extend cruise cancellations to all voyages with departures between August 1 and September 30 (including), meaning these cruises are effectively cancelled.

In a statement, NCLH said it will "continue to work in tandem with the US CDC, the federal government and global public health authorities to take all necessary precautions to ensure the health, safety, and security of guests, crew and the communities visited.”
