The world’s most important cruise company has started cancelling next year’s trips in a fresh blow to an market devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.
Previous FTSE one hundred cruise operator Carnival blamed border limitations and the “continued uncertainty of airline travel” for axing Princess Cruises sailings in early 2021.
Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises president, claimed: “We share in the disappointment of this cancellation for company of our globe cruises.”
The cancellations stick to an announcement by Cunard, also owned by Carnival, that companies will be suspended right until March next year.
All sailings have been cancelled for Queen Elizabeth right until Mar 25, Queen Mary two right until Apr eighteen, and Queen Victoria right until May well 16, Cunard claimed.
Shares in Carnival, also stated on the New York inventory exchange, have plunged above fears that the Miami-headquartered company faces a extended road to restoration in the wake of the pandemic.
