Viking Cruises announces 136-day world cruise to 56 ports, starting at $50,000

“While coronavirus continues to spread around the globe and cruising remains at a standstill in many areas of the world including the United States, Viking Cruises is looking to the future. The cruise line, which provides river, ocean and expedition journeys, announced a 136-day cruise aboard the Viking Star to visit 27 different countries with stops at 56 ports on Wednesday. “This has been an unusual year for all travelers, but we remain focused on the future and are pleased to offer our guests a new destination-focused World Cruise that allows for extensive exploration in 2021-2022,” said Torstein Hagen, the cruise line's chairman, in a statement. The journey is scheduled to begin from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Dec. 24, 2021, though passengers have the option to embark in Los Angeles on Jan. 10, 2022, for a 119-day journey to 22 countries and 49 ports.”

Costa Cruises slapped with proposed class-action suit over handling of coronavirus aboard Luminosa ship

“A Miami lawyer filed suit against Costa Cruises on Tuesday afternoon, alleging that the operator was negligent for allowing the Costa Luminosa to sail after a passenger on a previous trip showed symptoms of the novel coronavirus — and for continuing on its next voyage after more showed symptoms. Tuesday’s lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Miami, is just the latest litigation targeting the beleaguered cruise industry, which has had coronavirus outbreaks on dozens of ships around the world. And experts expect it won’t be the last. “It doesn’t surprise me that some people are, no pun intended, testing the waters to see if these cases are viable,” said Michael Karcher, a maritime lawyer who teaches admiralty law at the University of Miami School of Law. “Most passenger tickets have a one-year statute of limitations by contract. There may be some waiting to see what happens.” ”

Cruise Ship Will Perform COVID-19 Outbreak Simulation Drill

“One of the world’s first global cruise lines is about to resume cruises and one of their cruise ships will participate in a COVID-19 outbreak simulation drill.  Genting Cruise Lines will be the first international cruise company to restart operations with the deployment of Dream Cruises’ Explorer Dream to Taiwan, where she will begin “Taiwan Island-Hopping” itineraries on 26 July 2020. Upon the cruise ship’s arrival in Keelung on 30 June 2020, Explorer Dream underwent a thorough deep cleaning in accordance with EU standard, in addition to her crew immediately beginning their mandatory 14-day quarantine on land…. Prior to her inaugural sailing, Explorer Dream will participate in an outbreak simulation drill under the guidance of the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control. Medical experts from the Taiwan Public Health Association will also consult on the drill with professional advice on the ship’s prevention and response plans to ensure the seamless execution of preventive measures both on board and on shore.”

AmaWaterways Leads the Return of River Cruising

“AmaWaterways announced it has resumed operations in Europe with a series of charter sailings onboard the AmaKristina in Germany with local guests. The ship had newly enhanced health and safety protocols onboard. “As the proud Godmother of our award-winning AmaKristina, I am honored that she was our very first river cruise ship to set sail in Europe this summer,” said Kristin Karst, executive vice president and co-founder of AmaWaterways. “Although many countries continue to have travel restrictions in place, we have begun operating a series of sailings for European guests, in collaboration with an established German tour operator, e-hoi. With these sailings, we have been able to put into practice and perfect our enhanced health and safety protocols while demonstrating that travelers can enjoy our unforgettable river cruise vacations with peace of mind.” ”

Why the scrapping of the world’s first ‘megaship,’ Sovereign of the Seas, is so heart-breaking

“One of the most famous ships in the history of modern cruising, the former Royal Caribbean vessel Sovereign of the Seas, sailed off into the sunset this week, without so much as a goodbye. There was no fanfare, not even an official announcement, as the legendary, 2,278-passenger vessel traveled empty to a ship-scrapping town along the Turkish coast, presumably to be dismantled like so many older cruise ships before it. It is a fate that eventually will befall every cruise ship now at sea, of course. But I guess I expected that when the end came for Sovereign, there would be more of a celebration. If any vessel deserves the cruising equivalent of a New Orleans “jazz funeral,” it is Sovereign.”

P&O Cruises extends Australasia cruise suspension

Sture Myrmell, P&O Cruises president, said while everyone hoped sailings would resume eventually, it had become increasingly clear that more time was needed for society to reinstate many modes of travel and community gatherings. “The path to society reopening fully is continuing to evolve – and cruising will return when science and public health align, and people again feel comfortable to meet.  “With this in mind, we have reviewed the current end date of our pause in cruise operations,” Myrmell said. “We will continue to use this time to liaise with authorities, public health experts and others in the industry to develop enhanced public health measures for when the time is right to resume sailing.”

Princess Cruises, which had major coronavirus outbreaks on two of its ships, the Diamond Princess and the Grand Princess, made the call to cancel more sailings due to COVID-19's progression and decisions of government authorities, health authorities and airlines regarding travel restrictions around the world, the company said in a release.  Princess Cruises' extension means none of its ships will sail in the U.S. until at least Dec. 16, taking the line's suspension far beyond the CDC's "no-sail order" now set to expire on Sept. 30.”

Cruise Lovers Share "Why We Can't Wait to Sail Again!"
