Norwegian cancels 2020 Alaska cruise season

Norwegian cancels 2020 Alaska cruise season

Norwegian Cruise Line announced on Tuesday it was cancelling all of its 2020 Alaska cruises.

In an email to travel agents, Norwegian cited both the impact of COVID-19, as well as port restrictions as why it was forced to cancel all of its Alaska cruises.

While we remained hopeful that we would resume our Seattle-based Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Joy Alaska sailings in September 2020, today's suspension includes the following cruises.

Cancelled sailings include:

Norwegian Joy

  • September 5, 2020
  • September 12, 2020
  • September 19, 2020
  • September 26, 2020

Norwegian Bliss

  • September 13, 2020
  • September 20, 2020
  • September 27, 2020

Letter to travel agents from NCL

Guests who were booked on the cancelled cruises have the choice of:

  • 125% Future Cruise Credit
    • Future Cruise Credits will be issued by Thursday, July 2, and can be applied within a year of the date they are issued on any Norwegian sailing through December 31, 2022.
  • 100% Refund
    • Refund request must be submitted beginning at 9 a.m. July 6, 2020, and through midnight on July 17, 2020.
