Royal Caribbean International extends pause for Australasia cruises

Royal Caribbean International extended its Australian and New Zealand sailing suspension through to January 31.

Alternative arrangements

In September a spokeswoman for the Royal Caribbean Group announced a suspension until December 31. She said cancelling the Christmas and New Year sailings gave people the opportunity to make other holiday arrangements.

Beyond deadline

The latest suspension, beyond Australia’s December 17 human biosecurity emergency period, is to allow passengers booked on January sailings to find other holiday options.

‘Our primary goal continues to be a healthy return to service for our guests, crew and the communities we visit and we are working closely with local health and government authorities towards this shared goal,’ the spokeswoman said.

Fielding questions

‘We will be reaching out to our guests and travel partners to share further details and address any questions or concerns.

‘We are sorry for any inconvenience these cancellations may cause.’
