Recommended Posts

Federal government has now stated that the only cruises allowed in Canadian ports are ships that carry less than 100 people. The people limit includes passengers and crew that may not be greater than 100

But of course Oceania has not said a thing...

 

The ban is through 31 October.

My goodness it was only announced today 🙄

Do you think any ships would be sailing then anyway?

This morning all remaining cruises to Alaska had been given an availability designation of Wait Listed. 

 

This seems to be Oceania's first step when a cruise will no longer happen.  It is specific only to Alaska, as there are other August cruises that still are available. 

 

If Oceania follows their pattern,  formal cancellation should follow sometime the third week of June.

I cannot see any sailings until at least Nov  probably Dec  if  all the stars align

I think the cancellations will be spaced out  as to not  overwhelm the  staff that are still working   &  probably  the $$ issue 

They may only be allowed to draw down on the loans a certain amount  monthly  slowing up the refunds even more

I am just guessing  so time will tell

Definitely eliminates all the fall foliage cruises between NYC and Montreal for everyone.

Yep -- this will be my third cancelled cruise.  This one was booked with FCC that had to be used in 2020 per the last cancellation terms.

 

Using all of the saved money from cruising to treat myself to a 2020 Corvette.
