Somber news for adventurers who enjoy setting sail on a cruise ship. Though the update will come as little surprise to most, this popular cruise line is canceling all sailing scheduled through March 2021. Lover of travel and adventure, Jamie Simmons shares the details:
The COVID-19 pandemic (which is still ongoing, as of today) hit the tourism industry like a ton of bricks. Rules, regulations and restrictions on travel have halted vacations and postponed all plans for adventure for the foreseeable future. To say the least, times have been tough. But as coronavirus cases continue to crop up, the travel industry has had to adjust accordingly. In many cases, that has entailed closures and cancellations until 2021.
Now, a popular and beloved cruise line is joining in on those heartbreaking cancellations. This week, the iconic Cunard Line’s Queen Mary 2 announced that it will not set sail again for at least eight months. Neither will its sister ship, Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth. As of right now, this is the anticipated reopening schedule:
- Queen Elizabeth – March 25, 2021
- Queen Mary 2 – April 18, 2021
- Queen Victoria – May 16, 2021
