The cruise lines have had a bit of a rough start to 2022 due to the new COVID variant. Given the rise in omicron cases both on land and at sea, cruise lines have needed to cancel select sailings recently. Last evening, Norwegian Cruise Line released a travel update in which it cancels more cruises.

In addition to these two ships, Norwegian Cruise Line provided updates on additional ships in a travel advisory on January 5th. These ships included Norwegian Sky, Pride of America, Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Star, Norwegian Sun, and Norwegian Spirit.

If your ship is not on the list, it is still sailing as planned. Norwegian Cruise Line states, “However, as the global public health environment continues to rapidly evolve and destinations around the world modify their travel requirements or implement new travel restrictions, it is possible that itineraries may need to be modified.”

  1. I love NCL, but I can’t get this question answered. If a person has had covid in the past 90 days but can still test positive even though they don’t have covid any longer. What do they have to do to cruise? Do they need. Dr note or they just can’t go.
