The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has updated the latest list of cruise lines that have cancelled and deferred their 2020 Vancouver-Alaska itineraries due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The following lines have cancelled all Vancouver-Alasaka voyages this season:  Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America, Hurtigruten, Princess Cruises, Windstar Cruises, Scenic Luxury Cruises, and Seabourn.  The following lines have deferred all port calls on this route with a proposed August start: Celebrity Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Silversea Cruises, Oceania Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, Royal Caribbean International and Scenic Luxury Cruises.

While only a handful of cruise ships had positive cases of COVID-19 onboard, the cruise lines are committed to protecting the health and safety of passengers, crew and the communities they regularly visit.  The suspension of cruise operations will have a pronounced detrimental effect on the global economy. The cruise industry generates more than $150 billion per year in global economic activity and supports over 1.17 million jobs worldwide.
