(Updated 1:55 a.m. EDT) -- AmaWaterways has extended its fleet suspension, canceling all Europe, Asia and Africa river cruises through June 30, 2020.

The line initially revealed an operational suspension on March 13 -- which was extended on March 23 through May 31 -- before extending for a third time on April 7 as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

"The health and safety of our guests, and the wellbeing of our staff and crew, are of the utmost importance and we must be vigilant and responsible in ensuring your safety during these uncertain times," the line said in a statement on its website.

Cruisers on canceled voyages will receive a future cruise credit (FCC) equal to 115 percent of the value of their AmaWaterways purchased services, redeemable on any AmaWaterways river cruise sailing through December 31, 2022. The FCC can be used to cover all charges related to AmaWaterways services and can be applied to cruise deposits; it is also transferrable with written confirmation provided by original FCC owner.

Upon the expiration of the FCC on December 31, 2022, guests who have been unable to use the FCC may ask for a refund equal to the original amount paid to AmaWaterways. Standard AmaWaterways Cancellation Policy and other restrictions will apply to the FCC.
