(2:07 p.m. EDT) – Editor's Note: As of April 9, all cruise ships over 250 passengers and crew that operate in U.S. waters have been put under a no-sail order by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The order will remain in place until COVID-19 is no longer a public health emergency, and supersedes individual cruise line dates for a return to service. For more information, visit our news story.
Seabourn has extended its suspension of global operations for all five of its vessels through June 30, 2020.
"The decision is a proactive response to the unpredictable circumstances evolving from the global spread of COVID-19," the line said in a statement.
Passengers on impacted sailings will receive a 125 percent refund as a future cruise credit, which must be used to book a cruise by December 30, 2020 but can be applied to any voyage departing through December 31, 2021. Alternatively, Seabourn will provide a 100 percent refund to the original form of payment to those who decline the additional future cruise credit.
Seabourn is reaching out to all passengers or their travel agents with instructions on how to manage cancellations. The line is asking passengers not to call the line's reservation center due to high call volumes.
