(11:30 EDT) -- The Scenic Group -- which includes Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours and Emerald Cruises -- will temporarily suspend all river cruise operations until 30 April 2020, due to coronavirus concerns.

Glen Moroney, Scenic Group owner said: "With the news of increasing virus cases in countries around the world, the health and safety of guests and crew is our primary focus. We will continue to ensure they come first and foremost in all our decisions."

For passengers whose river cruise departures are within this period of suspended operations, The Scenic Group is offering the choice of either a Future Travel Credit valued at 125 percent of the booking, or the option of a refund to the value of the amount paid.

Passengers choosing a Future Travel Credit will have up to 24 months to travel on a Scenic Group river cruise.

The Scenic group also includes an ocean going vessel, Scenic Eclipse, which at the time of writing is not included in the temporary suspension:

"The Scenic Group are closely monitoring the ever-changing global situation and as circumstances change will advise accordingly," a statement from the line read.

Scenic is the latest in a long list of river and ocean cruise lines which have temporarily suspended operations.
