The world’s major cruise organization has begun cancelling upcoming year’s trips in a fresh new blow to an sector devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.
Previous FTSE 100 cruise operator Carnival blamed border restrictions and the “continued uncertainty of airline travel” for axing Princess Cruises sailings in early 2021.
Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president, claimed: “We share in the disappointment of this cancellation for attendees of our environment cruises.”
The cancellations abide by an announcement by Cunard, also owned by Carnival, that providers will be suspended until March upcoming calendar year.
All sailings have been cancelled for Queen Elizabeth until Mar twenty five, Queen Mary two until Apr eighteen, and Queen Victoria until Could sixteen, Cunard claimed.
Shares in Carnival, also stated on the New York stock trade, have plunged more than fears that the Miami-headquartered organization faces a extended street to restoration in the wake of the pandemic.
