Celebrity and RCI-Royal Caribbean cancel additional cruises due to COVID

Two of the Royal Caribbean Group's subsidiaries - Celebrity Cruises and RCI-Royal Caribbean International - have canceled voyages as COVID continues to spread.

Celebrity postponed the Celebrity Eclipse ship, canceling multiple departures in the process. The company pushed the boat's restart from the end of March through the end of April before the Eclipse begins the Alaskan season.

As a result, 4 "Pacific Coast" roundtrip departures from Los Angeles were canceled: March 26, April 2, April 9, and April 16.

The company made the decision as part of their continuous review of their operating plans as they return to service.

Guests who had been booked on the canceled voyages have been offered a full refund or a "lift and shift" to a "coastal" sailing on Celebrity Millennium

RCI canceled another voyage after canceling sailings on multiple liners earlier this month.

RCI's 2-night cruise on Independence OTS (originally scheduled to depart on January 22) was scrapped "as a result of the ongoing COVID-related circumstances," according to an RCI statement shared by spokesperson Lyan Sierra-Caro.

Passengers booked on Independence of the Seas' January 22 voyage received "compensation options" including a full refund.

NCL-Norwegian has also canceled voyages on the majority of its liners.
