US seeks public input for rulemaking on cruise line nonperformance, refunds

CRUISE FMC logo.jpg
The Federal Maritime Commission issued an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on cruise line nonperformance and refunds for canceled or delayed voyages.

The regulatory changes would clarify what constitutes cruise line nonperformance and how refunds should be handled in the event of canceled or delayed voyages. The FMC voted in late September to initiate this proposed rulemaking.

The public is invited to comment until Nov. 13.

Comments may be submitted by email to [email protected] Emails should include in the subject line 'Docket No. 20-15, Comments on PVO Financial Responsibility Rulemaking.' Comments should be attached to the email as a Microsoft Word or text-searchable PDF document.
