Shoreside US team members and some international offices are impacted.
Cutback commensurate with reduced operations
This scaling back is to a 'level commensurate with that which is needed to operating during the voyage suspension,' a company spokesperson said.
Furloughed staff remain employees
Furloughed team members will remain employees throughout the furlough period and will continue to be eligible for healthcare and other benefits.
'We are taking additional steps to support our impacted team members through these difficult times, including paying the full employee share of medical insurance premiums and paying out up to 80 hours of vacation at the beginning of the furlough,' the spokesperson added.
This follows the company docking shoreside pay 20% and shifting to a four-day work week for its US team, effective March 30.
